China has recently been on an Apple-bashing kick. The country’s State-run newspaper has accused the iPad maker of not offering equal services to China as compared to the rest of the country. A Chinese company is suing Apple for patent infringement on the virtual personal assistant program that Siri was created from. Just a few days ago, a State-run film studio accused Apple of selling unauthorized movies on iTunes.
In an attempt to calm the storm that is Chinese propaganda, Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook recently announced that the company would alter its warranty to extend service for the iPhone 4 and 4S, as well as extending its warranty for the iPad’s main component parts to two years.
