    lol, I remember seeing an article on a magazine:

    "China: 1,000,000 workers, 17 Suicides. THIS is where your iPhone comes from."

    I hope these idiots know that probably half of the things they own were made by someone getting paid 30 cents an hour to make it in China.

    If they were smart, they wouldn't use Facebook... since Facebook will inevitably end up as a 3DS app (or it will at minimum have some sort of Facebook functionality).
    Facebook will then be associated with the 3DS... and it'll be like trying to boycott the 3DS through a company that likes the 3DS.

    The more people who believe this, the more of a chance I'll have of being able to buy a 3DS on release day.

    I think we should boycott "drunk-driving fuels" by refusing to purchase alcohol. We need to send a message to companies who get rich off of killing people in drunk driving accidents. Same argument as "conflict materials".

    Come on activists, let's focus on holding the people directly responsible accountable for the atrocities in the Congo rather than punishing gamers and Nintendo (where in the fuck is the U.N. BTW?)

    Do they have any source anyway? And why did they wait until THIS long to do it? I think it's only a bunch of stupid haters.

    I really couldn't care less if Nintendo was using conflict materials. Even if they were, and they later decided NOT to use these "conflict materials", and obtain them elsewhere, it would be significantly more expensive...not to mention some of these conflict materials are only obtainable in conflict areas.

    Right. Who cares if people are killed, so long as TwinRetro gets his video games!

    Given the quantity of materials produced from the Congo region and that over half the mines producing them are controlled by the guerrillas, it's more likely they are than they are not.
    It's somewhat unfair to name Nintendo, but they have the big new item.
