Vladimir Putin may not want to give America Edward J. Snowden, but America -- and more specifically Apple -- just gave Russians a big gift in the form of an official online store for buying Cupertino's wares.
No doubt there'll be a lot of smiles on the faces of Apple's Board of Directors today. Why so happy? Well, it seems that the Chinese Government has approved the company's iPhone 4 handset for retail to billions of Chinese citizens.
Man, if you thought it was hard finding an iPhone 4 to buy now, just wait until the handset takes off in the Asian market.
