In the News "Not only has China's Central TV been running regular follow ups to its March 15 expose on Apple's iPhone repair policies, but on Thursday People's Daily - the Communist Party's official propaganda organ - attacked the company for the fourth day in a row, devoting half a page to negative articles." This isn't rocket science. The west treats Chinese technology companies like crap, so they treat western companies like crap. How exactly does this surprise anyone? And why is it okay for our governments to engage in political games to smear foreign companies, but we throw a hissy fit when a foreign nation engages in the same political games to smear western companies? It sucks for Apple to be the target right now, but had this occurred a decade ago, it would have been Microsoft.

What is considered "common knowledge" is often a collage of truths and lies. First-hand experience is what counts and mine was good, really good.

Most know the legacy of 'Made In China' stamped stuff.


Didn't "Made in Japan" have that issue some time ago? Made in China means nothing more than Made in USA. Crap can be produced anywhere and China can(and does) produce high quality products.(Every single iDevice is produced there)

A non-tech company example (just because it is still fresh in my mind):

So, are the Chinese the only ones that fuck-up? People may buy food for their live-stock that still has traces of DDT from south-america. Why would they buy from there? Because it's cheaper.

Just recently a French company was caught using horse meat in products that were supposed to contain beef and blamed that on Romanian suppliers. Turned out that it was not the Romanians after all.

Western propaganda about "those nasty commies" is a wonderful thing.
