A report from the Fair Labor Association said employees at Foxconn factories in China continue to exceed the country's limit on working hours. Foxconn, which has come under fire for labor violations, operates factories where Apple ( AAPL) products are assembled. Apple has urged its suppliers to improve labor conditions over the past few years. It has been a member of the Fair Labor Association since 2012. The report founds that workers at two Foxconn factories put in between 40 and 60 hours per week, exceeding China's cap of 40 hours per week and 36 hours maximum overtime per month. Apple and Foxconn have agreed to comply with limits on working hours by July 2013.
Social scrapbooking Web site Pinterest has added a new "Send" feature to its service. The site's new "Send" button now allows users to forward and share pins with Pinterest and Facebook friends as well as email contacts.
