Ira Glass: OK, I am holding a new iPhone 4S in my hand. This is the one that you can talk to, and it talks back. It’s a program called Siri. So let’s try this. I’m just going to hold it up to the microphone here and push a button.

Ira Glass: Siri, where do you come from?

Siri Software: I, Siri, was designed by Apple in California.

Ira Glass: Where were you manufactured?

Siri Software: I’m not allowed to say.

Ira Glass: Why?

Siri Software: Good question. Anything else I can do for you?

Your iPhone was made (in part) by 13 year-olds working 16 hour days for 70 cents an hour.
NPR’s This American Life did a special on Apple’s manufacturing of iPhones and iPads, and let’s just say… it can be guilt-inducing for iPhone owners. The full text is available as a transcript on NPR’s archives, while Henry Blodget does a great job recapping for Business Insider.
