Kind of an ironic comment from you considering your ugly blue sig that calls people out for being "stupid."
OK, why don't you explain the rationale (including facts to support the argument) why Apple replacing all the counterfeits with genuine Apple products would be the BEST thing they could do?
In reality, it would be a horrible move - for lots of reasons:
1. It sets a precedent - and encourages people to buy more fakes. Some people would intentionally buy fakes and then try to get them replaced - so they could get genuine Apple products at the junk price.
2. It creates in peoples' minds the concept that the fakes are truly a legitimate product and Apple considers them to be such.
3. Of course, it would cost Apple many millions of dollars that could better be invested in R&D.
There are more, but that's a start.
Besides, it would get REALLY expensive when they start replacing Samsung phones with iPhones.
