It's probably real, and probably predates the general iPhone 4 release. Check out the serial number, then look at your own phone.
Well, I wouldn't go that far. There are plenty of huge organizations that are LLCs or LPs (such as the company that I work for) that make billions of dollars in income that pay no taxes. Before you get all in a tizzy over this, the owners report the income and pay the taxes as if they made the money themselves (this is called pass-through taxation).
Hmm, provided a stable market place for it to sell its products, provide an adequate legal structure and rule of law and allowed it to enforce its contracts, provide a favorable marketplace for it to raise capital and enable it to make the investments that it has made, protect its technological innovations domestically and abroad and provide it with an intelligent workforce. The list goes on and on.Do you think Apple Inc. can survive in a lawless governmentless place such...

Plus, its questionable whether a smaller circulation would be good for the economy (in fact the Fed is trying to do just the opposite of that).
Would it matter if anything they did (save for burn it) would be better for the US economy than letting it sit outside of our borders?
Maybe they aren't doing it for the benefit of the general US public but the fact is that if the money does arrive stateside, it will be either:1) Invested in job creating business ideas in the US2) Paid out as dividends to mostly US shareholders (where it will be taxed) and spent, saved or invested OR3) Sit in corporate coffers in bank accounts in banks within the US (where it will be lent out by the banks to borrowers).Any of the 3 above options will have a positive...
