This is a perfect example of how protectionism is counterproductive in democracies. India needs to encourage foreign direct investment, not discourage it.
This seems doubtful. They just signed a bunch of people onto the iPhone Update Program, which allows for upgrades after 12 months. That plan is popular with people who upgrade every year.
 And he sold AnandTech last year after he went to Apple.
9to5Toys is reporting that Target plans a similar promotion. This sounds like an attempt to up-sell during the holidays.

There were some untrusted apps that purported to be able to tell the difference.
They should have had a reservation system. I got to the UES at 9:05 and wound up with the last 38mm Fauve Barenia Single Tour. They had no Double Tours or Cuffs in stock (though those were the only ones available for try-on), and while they were taking down names, it was simply to give them a call later when they came in (i.e. it wouldn't guarantee them a product later on). The Hermes store had about 40 in line when I walked past. I was about 10th in line and there were...
