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.

Who's throwing a hissy fit? Plenty of folks in the west bash Apple on a regular basis, so it's about time the Chinese join the fun ;)

A lot of people are throwing a hissy fit. Specifically those that are on the forefront defending Amercian companies from the evil foreigners... like EU.
