President Obama gets an iPad 2

Written by Nedim Hadzic

Gift from the Polish Prime Minister
Although he already has an iPad 2 and didn’t really need to go across the pond to get it, the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk now gave the US President Barrack Obama an iPad 2 packed with Polish movies, games and other goodies.

Apparently, the iPad 2 contains Tomasz Baginski’s Oscar nominated movie ‘Cathedral’, a digitally recreated aerial panorama of WWII-devastated Warsaw and some other stuff. To top it off, there’s ‘The Witcher 2’, a game made in Poland.

Unfortunately, talking about world leaders throwing iPads around made us think about the explosions and suicides in Foxconn’s factories. Perhaps when Obama visits China, they could give him their version of the iPad 2, filled up with photos of dead workers in aluminium polishing facilities, fun videos of assembling safety nets to prevent suicides and jolly pictures of the families of the deceased.

Haha great article Ned! Considering he gave the UK and other nations cheap DVDs with US region codes, it seems like a pretty good deal for him. Now lets hope he has some 24 hours to spare for an RPG game.

To be brutally honest what else could he hand the guy? What could he possibly give him? Witcher 2 is about as good as it gets from Poland :D

You haven't tried Polish sausages and beer... Although that's hardly an appropriate present for a visiting head of state. ;-)

Perfectly acceptable article until the third paragraph, which only seems to be there to mock Apple in a tasteless way.

There's no need to bring up explosions in factories or showing dead pictures of workers in this article, it's totally unrelated and stinks of bias and hatred towards Apple in an article which has little to do with the accidents in those factories. At least think something witty up if you want to joke about apple. Perhaps remove the last paragraph, and put a sub-heading under the current one saying

'Is this an act of war?'

No doubt the iPad2 will provide Mr Obama with relaxing activities to fill-in his ample idle time.

It was less of a mockery at Apple and more towards Foxconn, which is an separate company with a long history of poor conditions for their workers. The last paragraph was edgy I agree, yet it had no mention of Apple.

...and therefore has even LESS to do with the topic at hand
