So Foxconn’s chief let slip about Apple’s rumoured iTV , confirming that an all-in-one TV set is in the pipeline.
I don’t imagine tech’s most secretive company taking too well to a leak of this scale:

No worries. I understand how sneaky the press can be. Why, just now I accidentally let slip to a WSJ journalist about what really happened to your Chengdu workers. But no-one in China reads the American press, so no problem, right?

It’s all going well. As we suspected, Foxconn can’t be trusted; it looks you’re our only true Asian manufacturing partner. Good thing we only gave them the plans for the fake prototypes — can’t believe the fools think a better TV is our next revolutionary advance.
PS: Love the latest prototypes you sent us. Not sure about the name though. iBrain? Also we’ll have to go back to using monkeys as test subjects — only thing I’ll miss about our Chinese ex-partners is their supply of expendable humans. And lemme know when the new chips are done; Johnny’s itching to finally test his iTelepathy app.
