I think what Hans was trying to say there (style notwithstanding) is that Apple isn't the only one using services of Foxconn and the likes.
If we really want to be concerned about the conditions of workers in China, we should stop buying probably about 80% of consumer electronics right now. Anything else is hypocrisy at the worst, and sensationalism as a best case scenario.
