Life and death in Apple’s forbidden city | Technology | The Guardian

The sprawling factory compound, all grey dormitories and weather-beaten warehouses, blends seamlessly into the outskirts of the Shenzhen megalopolis. Foxconn’s enormous Longhua plant is a major manufacturer of Apple products. It might be the best-known factory in the world; it might also might be among the most secretive and sealed-off. Security guards man each of the entry points. Employees can’t get in without swiping an ID card; drivers entering with delivery trucks are subject to fingerprint scans. A Reuters journalist was once dragged out of a car and beaten for taking photos from outside the factory walls. The warning signs outside – “This factory area is legally established with state approval. Unauthorised trespassing is prohibited. Offenders will be sent to police for prosecution!” – are more aggressive than those outside many Chinese military compounds.But it turns out that there’s a secret way into the heart of the infamous operation: use the bathroom. I couldn’t believe it. Thanks to a simple twist of fate and some clever perseverance by my fixer, I’d found myself deep inside so-called Foxconn City.

All cellphones sold in Canada must be unlocked starting in December – The Verge

The CRTC, Canada’s wireless regulator, has ruled that every cellphone sold in the country must be unlocked, and carriers can no longer charge their customers to unlock their current devices, according to the CBC. The rules will take effect on December 1st, allowing customers to move to different carriers with their device as they wish.According to the CBC, Canadian carriers charged their customers $50 Canadian dollars ($38) to unlock their devices, which added up to $37.7 million CAD ($28.5 million) in 2016. The carriers, of course, fought the ruling by the CRTC, claiming that customers should have to “bear the cost of the unlocking,” as Rogers vice president Howard Slawner said back in February, failing to note that carriers themselves lock devices.But the argument is moot now. Canadian carrier customers will be able to unlock their phones at will come December.

Everyone Donald Trump Has Blocked on Twitter: A Running List | WIRED

IF DONALD TRUMP loves one thing in this world, it’s Donald Trump. If he loves two things, a close second-place goes to his Twitter feed. Unfortunately, in addition to Trump’s loyal armies of patriots and trolls, Twitter also hosts both liberals and members of the lying liberal media—people who do not show President Trump the respect he deserves. And for that, they must be blocked.Now, Trump has never shied away from hitting the block button; before he assumed the presidency, Trump appears to have blocked users with frequency and vigor. His new office, though, heightens the stakes considerably. It’s not just petty for a sitting president to block his constituency; it also has troubling First Amendment implications.
