My take: trust Wired more than non techies   pirate.gif
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

My take --- The BBC rarely get it wrong
QUOTE
But the BBC has spoken to workers who make iPad parts in one factory in China. They say that low wages mean they have little choice but to work excessively long hours.

True. Most companies are in fact worse. Apple has been leading the industry in this area.
