    The US judge ruling that Microsoft should hand over the e-mails of its Irish daughter company to the US authorities, proves 2 things:

    - The US government as innocent as the Chinese government
    - China is not targeting Apple but American technology

    Cook can nip this in the bud by simply raising all retail store salaries to the same level as the U.S.. Afterall, cook claims to be the champion of fairness. This will ingratiate apple to the Chinese people.

    The Chinese government will be completely blindsided.

    Same should be done in Turkey and other countries that have a disparity in wages.
    Are you completely bereft of any intelligence in making that comment? Apple already pays much higher wages to their employees in China, and even has their manufacturing partners pay above average for their production line workers.

    You copy and pasted the same stupid drivel at 9to5Mac as well, please just GO AWAY, and never come back.

    Misused idioms aside...
    There is no misuse. Both are correct in usage. Inform yourself.

    Not so.

    All those who say, "I could care less" mean to say "I couldn't care less." It's a black and white matter.

    Happy to be an informer.

    Also, Xiaomi has chinese government snooping built in, same for other local brands. On the rest of Android it's easily installed.

    iOS is too much hassle to snoop on. It's a state security issue.

    Good for China. Let Apple sweat a little with their changing products so often and the poor consumer keeps losing money like that.China does not trust the U.S. at all. Cannot blame them.

    That might be true if the people who said "I could care less" said it with a sarcastic intonation, but I've never heard that,
