I do this all the time using the Car2Go service. You just find one on the street in your neighborhood, drive it somewhere else, and park it. Pay 41ï/minute.
Taiwan is still a province of the ROC.
Right. Even their license plates say "åç£çoe" (Taiwan Province).
At Macworld Expo, several companies were selling iPhone-compatible gloves. Good thing I live in an area where these are not needed.
True, it all adds up. But still, people in the U.S. (and most other developed countries, I suspect) don't buy fake iPhones.
I recently spotted a waiter with an iPhone in a third-world country so I went over to ask him about it. But it quickly became obvious that it was a fake. The sad thing is, I don't think the guy knew it. He said his mom paid $120 for it but it was basically unusable. You had to press real hard on the screen and the location calibration was way off (I'd played with another fake iPhone when I was in Laos and it was much better than this one). I showed him mine and the way it's supposed to work, with just a light flick of the finger.
Once I'd convinced him it was a fake, he asked me how much fakes like his go for in the U.S. I told him we don't have the fakes because you can get a new real one for $99 (with two-year contract). I ended up talking to the guy for a half-hour and it was a learning experience for both of us. But I felt bad for the guy, having spent several months' salary on a phone that barely worked (and possibly thinking that Apple makes such poor products)
