A Chinese regulatory body has given Apple the final license necessary for the iPhone to run on China Mobile’s wireless standard, reports The Wall Street Journal. The approval comes after Apple’s announcement yesterday of the new iPhone 5s and lower-cost iPhone 5c, both of which support the TD-LTE standard used by China Mobile, the world’s biggest carrier with over 700 million users. According to the website of China's Telecom Equipment Certification Center Wednesday, Apple received what's called a "network access license" for a handset resembling the iPhone that runs on the mobile standards used by China Mobile for third and fourth generation cellular services. Other licenses were given to Apple for handsets running the technology used by both China Unicom (Hong Kong) Ltd. and China Telecom Corp. A deal between China Mobile and Apple has reportedly long been in the works, with China Mobile Chairman Xi Guohua and Apple CEO Tim Cook meeting in July to discuss “matters of cooperation”, with the former indicating that he felt optimistic about a potential deal leading up to the announcement of the new phones. Last week, The Wall Street Journal also reported that Apple was preparing to ship the new lower-cost iPhone 5c to the carrier, suggesting a deal between the two companies had indeed been reached. The new iPhone 5s and the lower-cost iPhone 5c will be available in stores in China, the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore, and the UK starting on September 20.Related roundups: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s

The hog as they can! The postwar economy, the development of credit in its many forms (mortgages, HELOCs, credit cards) encouraged a "buy now, pay later" mindset. The low price and easy availability of goods, combined with more leisure time during the early 50's and 60's, led a lot of people to be trained by Madison Ave. as ultimate consumers.
Simple human greed. You go to China now, and the factory workers and capitalist entrepreneurs there who are comprising a new and upwardly-mobile middle class are buying as much "stuff" as they can. Cars (remember the bicycle as the emblematic transportation mode of China?), furs, bear bile, rhino horn, elephant ivory, you name it, they're buying it! And there are hundreds of millions of them!

Having sampled dirt-cheap pirated goods in Asia, I've often wondered how the hell they could turn a profit, no matter how low their costs are. Maybe they actually don't make a profit after all.
Counterfeit cars - too fuckin' funny
Copying in China goes far beyond fake DVDs, watches and handbags. We can copy everything except your mother, goes a saying in Shanghai. Soy sauce with fizzy water passed off as Pepsi, fake Cisco network routers (known as Chisco's) and mobile phones that look like the latest offerings from Nokia can all be easily found
