Reuters: The massive Foxconn International plant, which produces products for Apple in Longhua, China, seems more like a military fortress than a factory. No one gets inside the walled compound without a security card or a fingerprint scan, and employees are regularly scanned with metal detectors. Those inside have dormitories, canteens, recreation facilities, even banks, post offices and bakeries to prevent them from wanting to leave.
Recently, a reporter stood who stood on the public street outside the gates taking photos was physically attacked by guards. Is Apple going too far to protect its corporate secrets?
