Remember the iHub? It is a pretty cool-looking USB hub which comes with a nice glowing Apple logo on top while providing four USB ports for all your USB-connectivity goodness. It is now available on our store, for just $6.
There is only a few days left until the announcement of the iPad 2, and just a few hours ago, we received this picture showing a mockup of the iPad 2 from a case supplier in Shenzhen. He told us that Apple’s iPad 2 will look like this mockup, and they are using this to test out the iPad 2 cases they are exporting to the United States.
Not only Apple is boosting its presence in China, Dell is doing the same too! Dell is aiming to set up more than 2,000 commercial experience centers, and establishing about 1,000 after-sales service sites across the country. This project will make a great future for Dell in the Chinese market if everything goes well. Maybe?
Apple is planning to open more flagship stores in China, including two in Hong Kong. And guess what, Apple needs to spend at least 40 million USD for those two new Apple stores to be built in HK. Both stores will be opened by the end of this year.
Making touchscreens for iPhone is not easy. Reuters reports that a group of Wintek employees that were poisoned during the production of Apple touchscreens by the N-Hexane cleaners that their company used are making a direct appeal to Apple CEO Steve Jobs.

We never thought Apple would be unhappy with the Pineapple CEO action figure. Last month, we reviewed the phenomenal figurine and it was great, all readers here love it so much. However, last week, we received an email from a law firm representing Apple.Inc. Yes, Apple has informed us again that the phenomenal Pineapple CEO action figure, utilizes Apple’s trademark as well as Mr. Steve Jobs image, therefore they request us immediately to cease the marketing and sale of this figure. Here’s what the email has told us:
We are not sure if this is true. Earlier this week, China Telecom posted a tweet on its Sina microblog saying they were working on a way to crack Verizon Wireless’ CDMA iPhone 4, allowing Chinese mobile phone users to use the device on China Telecom’s network. A team of employees, nicknamed “Apple Lab Team”, from the Guangdong branch of China Telecom has successfully made a phone call with the Verizon iPhone 4 in the country. Sounds like a piece of good news to CDMA users in China, and the team will start to test other functions such as sending text messages. And we are guessing, China Telecom might soon launch the CDMA version of iPhone 4 if everything works out flawlessly.
Last week, I spotted an awesome store on the streets of Guangzhou. A fake 7-Eleven store showing an Apple logo on its signboard to attract Apple fanboys. Well, there are no Apple knockoffs in the store, but there might be some fake Big Gulps, Big Bites, or Slurpees!
