Apple may be playing with fire in China

iPhone China

When Apple released its earnings report for the March quarter, there was one data point that jumped off the page regarding iPhone sales. Although iPhone sales declined 1% year over year, Apple saw its revenue increase in every geographic region the company operates in, save for China. Specifically, Apple saw its revenue in China drop by 14% year over year, a factor widely attributed to slumping iPhone sales during the March quarter. And though the iPhone 7 Plus was more popular among Chinese consumers than Apple anticipated, Tim Cook conceded during Apple's conference call that older generation iPhone models "didn't perform as well."

China’s Shot at Wikipedia Aims to Be a “Great Wall of Culture”

China and Wikipedia have always had a contentious relationship and it appears that authorities are beginning to realize that if they can’t allow access to the site, they’ll have to build one of their own. But the leader of the new project says “our goal is not to catch up, but overtake.”

Netflix is headed where it has never gone before

Netflix Streaming

Netflix is currently available in nearly 200 countries across the globe, but the streaming giant has historically never been able to break into China. With upwards of 1.3 billion people, China is an incredibly important market for Netflix to tap into, especially amidst some analyst concerns regarding the company's ability to drastically increase revenue growth once its subscriber count plateaus.

As for Netflix's conspicuous absence in China, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings explained last year: “In China, you need specific permission from the government to be able to operate, so we’re continuing to work on that and we’re very patient. I think we’re going to be a success there, but it’s going to take some time.”

How one man built his own iPhone out of spare parts

https://youtu.be/leFuF-zoVzA

Simple phone repairs, like a battery or a screen unit, are easier than people think. Thanks to guides like iFixit and the magic of eBay, information and spare parts are cheap and plentiful, and arguably more convenient than fighting your way to the Genius Bar.

But building an entire phone out of replacement parts? That's a much harder task, especially when you're working in Shenzen and barely speak the local language.

Apple squeaks out court win against Chinese company that almost doesn’t even exist

iPhone China Lawsuit

Apple might have the most iconic line of smartphones on the planet but that doesn't mean it's had an easy go of it in every corner of the map. In China, for instance, Apple has been forced to fight for the privilege of even selling its products, with government officials constantly bashing the company and endless legal hurdles that regularly threaten to damage its reputation. This week, Apple can claim at least a small victory in the country as a Beijing court ruled in favor of Apple in a patent case versus a small Chinese phone maker which cried foul.

This incredible ‘Vertical Forest’ is being built right now in China

vertical forest

How do you combat the ills of poor air quality and pollution in a massive city of over eight million people, where there's hardly room to plant new trees? You build a forest straight up into the sky. That's the idea behind the Nanjing Vertical Forest, which is scheduled to be fully built by 2018, and will bring thousands of trees and shrubs into the highly populated Pukou District of the city, absorbing tons of CO2 and producing a wealth of oxygen at the same time.

China announces it now produces more solar power than anyone

china solar power

China takes a lot of flak when it comes to environmentalism. Some of the most striking images to come out of the country in recent years show cities smothered in smog and citizens wearing masks to protect themselves from the barely breathable air. But China is making some big strides in the realm of renewable energy, and its efforts to reduce its reliance on smog-producing coal in 2016 have now made it the top producer of solar energy on the planet.

And it’s not just Niantic's hit iPhone and Android game that’s affected. Any other similar application that uses augmented reality (AR) might not be allowed in the country.
