Explosion at Foxconn’s Apple iPad 2 Plant

Exploision at Apple's iPad 2 Plant in China

An Explosion happened at Foxconn’s Chengdu Manufacturing Plant, this plant is where Apple’s iPad 2 is made. It is reported that the explosion happened inside an “operation room”, but we are not sure what do they do in the room.

There’s no confirmation on what cause the explosion, and how many casualties, but more than 10 fire engines, ambulances and police car were seen.

The factory is now sealed off by police, and no reporters are allowed to go near the plant as it is still not safe, and might have a possibility for a second explosion.

Hopefully no one is seriously injured, and hopefully no death.

Check out the video of explosion scene:

China’s fake version of iPad 2 Ads?

Yes, the ad looks really familiar right? It is actually taken from Apple’s old iPad ad, photoshop-ed with front facing camera and given iPad 2 a brand new White body which Apple can’t really produce even for iPhone 4.

Talk about white, although there always has been rumors saying white iPhone is for Verizon, but apparently it is not. Apple might really have issue producing good white color for their White iPhone. So let’s wait and see, and we might be able to see white iPhone 5.

Anyway, enjoy the mock up ad for iPad 2:

Can you tell the difference between iPhone 4 and China Clone SoPhone?

But there have been rumors that iPhone supplies in China will not meet its demand as the demand for iPhone 4 is still growing very strong.

This is how China Media look at Apple and Steve Jobs?

I have to admit it is funny. I’m Sorry if you don’t understand chinese, I can’t really do a translation about it to make it as funny as it is just a video created to make him look like a joke. But honestly, we know how Steve Jobs works, and how great a CEO he is. Nevertheless, it is fun to watch stuff like this sometimes ya? Sorry Steve!
