CEO Thorsten Heins on Thursday stressed RIM needs "substantial change" and said that "no stone will be left unturned." A sale of the company isn't out of the question but he said it's not the primary focus right now.

A labor advocacy group released the findings of an audit of working conditions at Foxconn, a major Apple (AAPL - Get Report) supplier in China.

Apple CEO Tim Cook visited a Foxconn facility in China on Thursday, and Foxconn reportedly has promised to make improvements, but it's not clear how this may or may not impact the company's relationship with Apple, which is part of the Fair Labor Association that conducted the audit.
