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.

Well, you keep buying your Made in China stuff and I'll keep buying stuff made in my country to support businesses and jobs.

As long as what you need is still made in your country. In my case I had to buy from abroad the only thing was choosing a supplier.

Obviously you don't own any electronic devices because the all have Chinese components. In fact every single PC, laptop, tablet and phone on the market is made in China.
