Apple gets ‘free advertising’ from the ‘People’s Daily.’ From March 25 to 29, in Beijing, the People’s Daily published articles that questioned Apple’s dual service standards. Chinese media accused Apple of discriminating against Chinese consumers: Chinese consumers pay top money, but get second-class service.

The US CNN website has listed in detail the policy of Apple’s warranty and after-sales service in the United States and China. It was found that Apple’s warranty policy in the United States is exactly the same as in China. Both of them have a guaranteed return policy within 14 days and a 1-year warranty.

The Chinese Internet debate on this matter via twitter was brilliant and thought-provoking. Here are some comments from the blog. Mr Crab Claws commented:
