i've never heard of a fourth of these countries lol, great to see that they're still expanding just like their retail stores though :D


I'm always amazed by how little most people know about topography. Especially people from North-America ;)

One thing amazing about AppStore is the reach to international customers. There are still many countries left out in the Android Market, and for Amazon appstore, it is US only. Apparently Apple did a great job.

Learn geography (and international law) - there is no such country.
It is just a province...


Depends on who you're talking with. It's the same with the Republic of China (Taiwan), though there's an Apple Store (Link (www.apple.com/tw)). There're 76 states that acknowledge the existence of the independent state Kosovo. The US is one of them. So there's absolutely no reason for Apple (international law or 'geographically' :rolleyes:) for not launching a Kosovan iTunes Store.

BTW: The declaration of independence of Kosovo in 2008 has been found not violating resolution 1244 nor was it in any other way unlawful (in respect to international law) (http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=35396&Cr=&Cr1=).

Yup - declaration is not in violation. Court has found that anyone can declare anything they want - they didn't tell is the independence in violation or not, or if recognition of independence is in violation.


Think about what percentage of the world's GDP ... more then 67% is represented on this image.


Maybe at this moment. Keep in mind that some of the countries in the picture are going to default... Every empire in the history has fallen, so will US/EU one.

You know - US is not the only buyer of goods in the world?
Also - keep in mind that economies of US and China are totally different. US totally relies on other countries, and imports from them. US doesn't produce anything and is not self sufficient. They rely on service industry and let's say entertainment industry. One more thing US counts on is their military to provide steady supply of cheap oil. China however, is a self sufficient system. Even if there are no outside buyers - country can continue to live because it is itself a big market.
China is producing tangible goods that will always be necessary. So even in the case that other countries go bankrupt - they will still need some basic products, and considering most of those stuff is produced only in China - those countries will have to find a way to pay to Chinese companies for their products.
On the other hand, world can live without Rocky 57, Rambo 78...
