    Amazing! I didn't know the only thing the Chinese economy produced was iPhones. How about Donald Trump's gift store items in New York City? Or his Macy's clothing line they just recently dropped? Can you honestly say there's not a single thing on your desk, home or business, or in your kitchen, that doesn't have "Made in China" on it?

    Then I don't understand why Apple is being singled out for this negative attention.

    Slightly off from the topic, there is huge potential that Chinese and Indian market will dominate the world economy. We (Asians) have already seen these chinese and indian products, they are no less than the western products. icon_exclaim.gif
