    Fucking amazing. I love shit like this, I'd also love to know where they're getting apple computers, iPads, iPods, etc. . . from.

    Would be awesome of someone running a manufacturing plant in China, hired by Apple, was just making extra stuff and shipping it out to stores like this, probably not the case. . . but it would still be awesome.

    Because yahoo doesn't tell me what my fellow 12oz users think about certain topics. If you can program an app that will combine yahoo news stories and the thoughts of the Oontz, then all of your woes will be gone.

    I feel like it's been the same threads on CH0 for the past year. I don't know if people stopped coming here because the content sucks or the content sucks because people stopped coming here. Maybe the user base just sucks now I don't know. Nothing but internet memes and "you mad." Untitled and Brick Slayers are still on point, but I find myself coming here less and less.

    /end rant

    Didn't hear about that, guess it wasn't a Yahoo News Story. Some German guy I know used to buy iPhones, program them to work in Europe, then fly to Germany with a suit case full of them, then sell them off for triple the price.

    I just can't get over these guys opening stores and modeling them to look like a legit Apple store.

    there is a percent of "bootleg" stuff that is produced exactly this way. so your not really buying bootleg fake but just something thats not part of the numbered edition so to speak...

    i just saw this story on Yahoo and thought to myself this WILL be in zero by ends day... im not surprised by this move anymore, its the norm in here now...
