New West Lake Apple Store is christened in China as large crowd gathers

Apple CEO Tim Cook took to his Twitter account and tapped out a rare tweet saying "Starting Something New in Hangzhou, China!" As you would expect, the latest addition to Apple's retail portfolio includes a Genius Bar and space to hold workshops on devices like the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad. Four more stores in China will open before the Chinese New Year commences on February 19th. Angela Ahrendts, Apple Senior Vice President of Retail, said that the company will open 25 new Apple Stores in the country before the end of next year.
Apple has been picking up market share in China, and is third behind Xiaomi and Lenovo with 12% of the Chinese smartphone market at last report. The larger screen sizes of the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus have helped Apple better compete in a country where low cost, large screened Android models have been the rage.

in all fairness, "ain't" is now considered a word and is defined by the dictionary, but not until modern society's stupidy called for it. i mean, yolo is even in the dictionary. but historically, and literally, it is not a word. hand a professional piece of work that contains the word "dumbness" and your credibilty is shot haha

True, but apart from believing in a higher being (which I don't believe myself), it's also about values, believing there is something bigger than all of us. It can give them strength in difficult times. To name but a few. And to compare that to a company who gave us gagdets, there is no comparison. And perhaps disrespectful is a bit harsh a word, I do think he overstepped it a little.
