MacBreak Weekly 344: The Hamburger in the Basement


What's on the shelves behind you? Have you done a video tour of your office? It seems like a closet maybe.

There's some interesting comment here on the Sinica podcast regarding what's going on with Apple and China.

In brief, there's a pattern: when companies become market leaders the Chinese authorities move to take them down. Happened to Toshiba, Dell, and HP before Apple. Along with that, Apple was too boastful of it's profits in the first place, and too tardy in it's apologies. It's worth a listen.
