Tim Cook May Not Know Why, But Samsung Is Winning in China 327

An anonymous reader writes with this interesting snippet about the state of mobile tech in China: "Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook believes that 'over the arc of time' China is a huge opportunity for his pathbreaking company. But time looks to be on the side of rival Samsung Electronics, which has been around far longer and penetrated much deeper into the world's most populous country. Apple this week said its revenue in Greater China, which also includes Hong Kong and Taiwan, slumped 43 per cent to $4.65 billion from the previous quarter. That was also 14 per cent lower from the year-ago quarter. Sales were weighed down by a sharp drop in revenues from Hong Kong. "It's not totally clear why that occurred," Cook said on a conference call with analysts. Neither is it totally clear what Apple's strategy is to deal with Samsung – not to mention a host of smaller, nimbler Chinese challengers."

    After tens of wars US has waged against Asian countries, Asian like American? As an Asian I almost puked.

    Do you understand that 'Asian' is not the same as 'Chinese?' Apparently not.

    You must have a small dick as she was craving the larger phone.

    No, you've got it all wrong. See, she likes to carry a life-sized photo of my cock on her phone, and the tiny iPhone screen couldn't display even its width. With the Note 2, she only has to scroll in the vertical direction to moon over my manhood, rather than in both directions.

    Wow, just wow. I sure wish all my freedoms were covered by a document created by your drunken American prophets two and a half centuries ago.

    I would think that a free country would allow you to travel wheresoever you may wish, wouldn't you? But as you say, those few males covered everything, didn't they?

    Keep living your life according to your constitution; it's working out great so far, isn't it?
