More Foxconn criticism, Fuchsia to support Swift apps


Google is apparently working on a programming language that will support apps written in Apple’s Open Source Swift

Foxconn accused of using illegal student labor to build Apple’s iPhone X — Apple’s main assembly partner, Foxconn, has been demanding illegal overtime from high school interns in its production of the iPhone X, a report charged on Tuesday.
Six of the students, aged 17 to 19, said they regularly work 11-hour days on the iPhone X at a factory in Zhengzhou, in violation of Chinese law for interns, according to the Financial Times. The students added that they’re with a group of 3000 students from Zhengzhou Urban Rail Transit School, all sent to the Foxconn factory in September and told that a three-month internship was required to graduate!

Google’s upcoming ‘Fuchsia’ OS to support Apple’s Swift language — Google’s nebulous ‘Fuchsia’ operating system – still in development – will apparently support apps written in Apple’s open-source Swift programming language.
A Google employee recently created a pull request on Swift’s GitHub repository, adding Fuchsia support to the compiler, Android Police noted this week. Fuchsia already supports a Google-created language called Dart, as well as standards like C and C++. [So, bright Fuchsia or no Fuchsia for you?]
