I hate how these titles always say "Apple Supplier" when the article even states:

Quote:
The Taiwanese-owned company declined to say whether the factory was involved in iPhone production. It said the facility, which employs 79,000 people, would suspend work Monday and reopen Tuesday.
Foxconn is not owned by Apple. Why not use any of these companies in the title:

Quote:
Major customers of Foxconn currently include:
Acer Inc. (Taiwan)[41]
Amazon.com (United States)[7]
Apple Inc. (United States)[42]
Cisco (United States)[43]
Dell (United States)[44]
Hewlett-Packard (United States)[45]
Intel (United States)[46]
Microsoft (United States)[9]
Motorola Mobility (United States)[44]
Nintendo (Japan)[47]
Nokia (Finland)[42]
Sony (Japan)[8]
Toshiba (Japan) [48]
Vizio (United States)[49]

Probably because Apple tries to have the biggest tree-hugger image. It's about the headlines....... (man-eating chicken) picture of a guy eating KFC, LOL!!!!
