They Are No Longer Just Faking American Electronics in China


They’re faking whole retail experiences: Apparently, a counterfeit Apple product isn’t satisfactory if it wasn’t bought in one of Apple’s gleaming, glass-encased storefronts, and so a go-getting entrepreneur has replicated the stores, down to the blue-T-shirt-wearing employees. (The tip-off that the stores are fake were the words Apple Store on the marquee; real ones just have the logo.) Also, many of the employees “can’t even operate computers properly or tell you all the functions of the mobile phone.” Maybe Genius Bar translates to something a little different in Mandarin.
