lol. dude what we call poor in America, the Chinese call upper class. their poor don't have cars, electricity, cell phones, cable, or anything. many don't even have electricity. don't confuse the rise of China's economy with their people doing well on a large scale.
freeloaders in America chant that they are the 99% while getting government assistance and free junk. in china the 99% are starving and aactually poor. if it wasn't so bad they wouldn't put up with the working conditions that they do to make sure their families can put a little rice on the table.

foxconn workers average over 100 hrs a month in overtime ,work 36 hour shifts ,and yet average 60 a month in pay.

get real dude.

This is silly for many reasons. However, the most important one being that this company regardless of how big they are have already won a case about the name. Why would the company not just settle with Apple for an unspecified amount for use of their name in China. That way this company, which does not even use the name actively, can get paid while Apple can also retain their products. Granted I am not a champion of Apple and their other practices they engage in against other companies but in this instance it seems that logic does not exist. it has already been proven, why not take the check for a name they do not even use and move on. Its a waste of court time and this is why things in this world are so screwed.

the last sentence, tell that to apple.. i won;t be surprised if they will be the world's most hated company.. all good things come to an end.. remember merryl-lynch, the same thing is not impossible to happen to apple.. if there is one company that can sustain the US economy better than apple, i am really sure that apple won't be able to be a patent troll anymore, the US govt backed them up cus they provide too many economical support for the US govt.. this is why they are being awarded with so many patents so that they won't go bust and contribute to the economy.. yeah, it's actually all about money and conspiracy.. nothing new..

iPad and Apple products will continue to flourish. Soon China will be Apple's biggest market. These bans never take effect. Too much money to be made.

Apple lost a case to Proview Technology (Shenzhen) in a Shenzhen court in southern China late last year, when the court agreed that Proview owned the iPad trademark. Sorry Apple if you win its going to cost you billions. Jaja
