(See post about Foxconn working conditions) The video was taken by a hired film crew in Foxconn’s Longhua facility in the city of Shenzhen, the official birthplace of Ipads. Rob’s video features the construction of the Ipad’s motherboard, and touchscreen, as well as some tests. The video also included a line up of people, wanting to work in the Fosconn factory for a starting $14 a day.
