The Chinese will counter by stating that Apple replicas are actually Chinese technology developed by "digesting" U.S. knowhow...

China is digging a grave with regard to quality & originality.

These particular people are proving themselves fantastic at being thieves.

The 27-year-old blogger, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the set-up of the stores was so convincing that the employees themselves seemed to believe they worked for Apple.

Brave lady. Stay safe.

Not surprised & suspect there are a lot more than 3 fake stores. Probably fake stores with every iconic name on them....
