Ever find yourself thinking that there's something fishy about Apple's performance in China? Apparently you're not the only one, as Taiwan's Next Media Animation released a video mocking their mainland cousins' government, state-owned media, and trumpeting of domestic brands over foreign ones in response to what they call "the Apple iPhone electric shock scandal."
Apple probably could have gotten away with shrugging its shoulders at the recent news that a Chinese woman died from an electrocution allegedly caused by a faulty knockoff iPhone charger, but today 9to5Mac reported that the Cupertino company is taking a far more nobler stance. Later this month, it'll allow customers to bring in their old USB power adapters and receive new, Apple-designed ones for a lower price via a "takeback program."
Apple is in hot water with the Chinese again, this time over the death of a 23-year-old woman who died last Thursday after answering her iPhone 5 while it was charging and was allegedly electrocuted as a result.
