Apple: Report on iPod Manufacturing

Apple has published a report on their investigation regarding charges of poor living and working conditions at a Chinese factory where iPods are manufactured:

In response to the allegations, we immediately dispatched an audit team comprised of members from our human resources, legal and operations groups to carry out a thorough investigation of the conditions at the manufacturing site. The audit covered the areas of labor standards, working and living environment, compensation, overtime and worker treatment.
