Petition wants "Ethical iPhone5"

Apple has come under fire over the past couple years for their manufacturing practices and now they've got a group of fans who have a petition to urge Apple to change their manufacturing practices and make an "ethical" iPhone5. Over 50,000 people signed the petition in the first 2 days and one would assume that number will grow even larger. Not that an online petition will change much but I'm sure Apple is none too impressed to have to deal with this issue again and I'm sure they'd do pretty much anything to get this to go away (maybe they'll release a new iPhone or iPad and most people will quickly forget about this). NYDailyNews has the full story as well as the links to the petition.

Apple fans are flocking to sign an online petition urging the tech giant to change its labor practices before releasing the iPhone 5 in order to make the device "the first ethical iPhone."

The campaign, launched by consumer group SumOfUs, urges Apple "to overhaul the way its suppliers treat their workers in time for the launch of the iPhone 5," which is expected in the latter half of this year.

"Apple has this brand that appeals to ethical consumers. They need to live up to that brand," SumOfUs executive director Taren Stinebrickner-Kauffman told the Daily News.
