The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs - David's Thoughtspot:

I saw a one-man show last night by Mike Daisey at the Public Theater called The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs. It was not what I expected. The show, which has been touring since July of 2010, was a collection of heartbreaking stories about labor conditions in the Chinese factories that manufacture Apple products (along with most other electronics). As a free-market, libertarian-leaning, Steve Jobs-loving Apple fanboy, it was not easy for me to swallow. However, having been exposed to it, it is hard to ignore.
