Apple is really big in China. Chinese Authorities ordered fake Apple Stores to close.
The story about fake Apple Stores raised a lot of attention around the world last week. Apple has been quite about this story all this time. Now Reuters reports that chinese officials the town of Kunming ordered the fake Apple Stores to close. They officials actually found five fake Apple Stores operating in Kunming.
Now that all the attention was on fake Apple Stores in China, reports appear that other parts of the world also have fake Apple Stores. The blog BirdAbroad that broke the fake Apple Store story has now a report up saying that fake Apple Stores exist in Croatia, Colombia, Burma, Venezuela, Slovenia and even Spain.
I suggest next time you visit the Apple Store in Palo Alto you ask a sales clerk if they are the real deal. They sure appreciate that.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
