In addition to Mapgate and Scuffgate, another controversy involving Apple is making rounds on the web. Comedian and television host Conan O’Brien jumped on the opportunity to scold Apple over the rioting which swept the iPhone 5 plant in Asia. Take a look at the iShiv, a new tool designed to “revolutionize factory riots”. Because assembly line workers “just love the thinnest, lightest factory riot weapon yet”. The clip is right after the break…

I don’t know, with that last line Team Coco may have taken the rioting too far.

What do you guys think?

Is Brian’s clip funny as hell or in bad taste?

    Depends on who you are i guess. It made me giggle because it’s good to have a sense of humor but also made me feel sorry for the people that were invovled if they are actually losing it if foxconn is really pushing the staff to the edge.

    I dunno. I find myself expecting more from IDB. Behind the scenes, little known facts, did you know, how to’s, manufacturing process details, component tests, interviews with industry experts, patent details, etc… These are the cool stories tech geeks like myself like to read about. It would be nice if IDB could gain a resource inside Apple so we could get exclusive breaking details about all things Apple.

    Too many useless stories with zero value lately.

    • This is what is called a “slow news day” when you have no good news but you have to post SOMETHING…even if it’s stupid

    Video not available ? Use proxy… Problem solved

    Bad taste? If we can’t laugh at something like this we’ll live very unhappy lives.. -___-
    Cue to someone blasting my for this in 3, 2, 1…

    • Huh…not yet.

      I’d blast if you were one of the people only worried about your iPhone order being messed up over this. Or something along that line.

  • kind of vulgar

  • Suggestion: have IDB sent undercover reporters posing as workers inside the Foxconn factories around the world to bring us breaking news about riot, working condition, child labor, etc.

  • prghon

    I kinda liked it

  • While I laughed I still find it bad taste.

    BTW, Foxconn is not exclusive to apple and makes many other devices for other companies.
