This Statue for a Chinese Warrior Is Very Probably the Most Badass Statue Ever

Damn. That’s a good statue. This 158-foot-tall bronze figure depicts Guan Yu, an ancient Chinese general, and majestically towers over Jingzhou, China. Shanghaiist says that over 4,000 strips of bronze have been stuck onto the body of Guan Yu and he stands atop the 86,000 square foot Guan Yu museum. All that is great but damn, I just can’t get over how fantastic the statue looks.

iPhone sales in China decline amid fierce competition from local brands

iPhone Sales In China
Tackling the smartphone market in China has to be nothing short of an exercise in frustration for Apple. On the one hand, the country remains one of Apple's most strategic geographic regions, bolstered by a population of 1.35 billion people. But on the other hand, Apple is finding that maneuvering within the company is fraught with no shortage of challenges. From patent troll lawsuits and iPhone 7 clones already hitting the streets, it seems that we can't go a week without some sort of obstacle emerging in Apple's path. And to top it all off, now comes word that competition within the Chinese smartphone market is fiercer than ever before, leaving Apple in a position of playing catch-up.

iPhone sales halted after Chinese firm accuses Apple of copying its design

iPhone Trademark China

Siri, how do you translate 'irony'?


Whether it's suing Samsung over rounded corners, or being accused of plagiarism by the Android crowd, Apple and plagiarism seem to go hand-in-hand. Its latest copyright law is something a little different though. According to Engadget, a "random Chinese company" has accused Apple of aping the design of its 100C smartphone.
