Apple Every year on World Consumer Rights Day (March 15), government-controlled China Central Television (CCTV) broadcasts a special report (in Chinese) damning companies for abusing Chinese consumers. This year the targets included Apple. Apple was accused of giving Chinese consumers worse service than customers in other countries, specifically of giving them replacements that included cases from their old phone, while customers in the UK would get a 100% new product.

I wonder if they got the translation right and perhaps meant "workers" instead of "customers".

In the West, everyone is a consumer. In Western business, humans are resources. In the West, corporations are people. But I guess if I have to be dehumanized, I'd rather be dehumanized in a democratic society.
