Foxconn shuts one of its Chinese factories after a dormitory brawl escalates into a violent riot involving maybe 2K workers. About 79K work at the Tiayuan plant, which may make the back plate for the new iPhone 5. However, others say Apple has little exposure there. Foxconn falls 2.6% in Hong Kong. Parent Hon Hai falls 1% in Taiwan.  AAPL -0.7% premarket.

    What is going on in reality is that Apple is trying to convince people that it can not produce as many phones as they should because there is some riot or something, while the real problem is that people don't like the iPhone (that much) any longer ...

    Anybody see Jon Stewart's parody of Foxconn working conditions? Man... is that funny, as funny as it is very sad--it's a strange juxtaposition.
