As an expat living in China I can attest to the fact that it is easy to bypass the Great Chinese Firewall. Even high school kids know how to do it! This is such a non-issue that it doesn't even deserve an article! Conversely, you have the morons at Google that simply pulled out of the market leaving it solely to the Chinese players, and hurting their loyal customers in the process. A truly stupid move from a company pretending like they always take the high ground, which...
Actually he wasn't underage. You are allowed to work at 15 in China.
With all due respect, you are clueless! Go get yourself a good education before you post such ridiculous comments. Of course Apple has a responsibility to monitor these factories, as they themselves have sated, and they are doing a better job than anyone else in the industry. Further, the only way to protect themselves from media hacks like the NYT, which got this story completely wrong, or clowns like Mike Daisey, is to be proactive in their audits and dealings with...
Are you really this dense or just pretending to be? ALL APPLE PHONES ARE HIGH END SMARTPHONES NOT HALF OF THEM! Do I need to repeat that to get it through your thick scull?
Seriously? Before you make such a moronic post, go get yourself a good education as you are obviously clueless! Apple ONLY sells high end advanced phones, even models that are two or three years old are high end. They still are updated with current iOS, unlike junk Android devices, and still carry state of the art features. They also are in such high demand they have excellent resale value. As to your Samsung numbers, you obviously flunked math class. Back to school for you!
One needs to remember that there are already over 40 million iPhones on China Mobiles network so this is not a zero sum start to the sales process. But certainly it speaks to the demand, and pent up demand, on the network which currently doesn't even support the iPhone on their homegrown 3G network. China Mobile cleverly overcame this obstacle in major markets like Beijing by offering ubiquitous public wifi access to iPhone users by setting up their own wifi network across...
Brilliant! Very touching. I'm an expat living in China and bought an iPad for my mother back in the States who has terminal cancer so that we can see and speak with each other regularly. And so she can get to know her 3 year old granddaughter who was born here. Thank you SJ for bringing so much to so many!
His also gives Apple more direct control over monitoring labor, safety, pollution issues instead of third parties contracting with suppliers without Apple in the loop. As to the Arizona sapphire component plant, it only makes since to hold the technology Crown Jewels here rather than doing it in Asia to better protect their IP from getting knocked off.
Judge Koh has created a circus act. There were 4 or 5 patents that were to be part of this trial and she would only allow the trial to proceed with this one patent when it should have been the whole group. This thing is going to drag on into the next century! Here's the reality, Samsung knew these patents existed yet slavishly and meticulously copied them, along with just about every single design element of the iPhone and OS, all the while thumbing their noses at the law....
Go get yourself a good education before you make such stupid comments. Start by studying the evidence that was presented at trail. Samsung's own documents presented as evidence in the case showed how they deliberately and willfully set out to copy virtually every single aspect of the iPhone, down to the package design including the typeface. Samsung, and the Korean companies in general, are the most mistrusted in Asia due to their unethical and illegal business practices....
