re: Apple To Sell iPhone 5, iPad Mini In China
Now would be a good time for Amazon, Samsung, etc. to get together to insist upon a full scale investigation into whether Apple committed bribery to any Chinese official(s) to obtain the licensing rights in China and whether there are future payments to be made, including transfer or options in stock to any present or former government official(s) or Chinese companies.
Since the entire government is filthy in its treatment of its own citizens including "eminent domain" proceedings with little value paid to owners [see news of farmers, and wives, throwing themselves off the roof of their partially destroyed homes or being killed making protests] and bribery and sending families to America to use as funnels for the transfers of funds stolen in China.
Seriously, check how many relatives of past and present government officials [down to district levels such as Bo] have relatives in the U.S. and/or attending American universities [and who cannot find their posteriors with both hands let alone match other student's records or accomplishments for entrance] and determine how wealthy the official or his/her family is.
Very doubtful that no money passed illegally into the hands of government officials.
Of course, this may be routine, and like PED's in sports, everyone is doing it because otherwise you cannot compete.
We'll see, that is, if someone would conduct an objective investigation.
