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.

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.

China practically says Trump lied about climate change

Trump's Climate Change China

China hit President-elect Donald Trump a second time in a matter of just a few days. The first attack happened a few days ago when a Chinese state-run newspaper advised Trump that a trade war against China will have dire consequences on American businesses, including the iPhone. Soon after that, a Chinese consumer group announced its investigating the iPhone following reports of malfunctioning iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s units in the region. The second response to one of Trump’s wild campaign promises came directly from a Chinese government official on Wednesday, and it concerns a major issue: Climate change.
