They should just charge the knock-off vendors a licensing fee, then they wouldn't have to build all these stores. Tim Cook hire me

Well Apple relied on the ailing US economy in the past few years so surely it worked.

Not really relied. Less than half of revenue came from the Americas combined. ('http://www.statista.com/statistics/382175/quarterly-revenue-of-apple-by-geograhical-region/') And if Apple's strategy is to rely on the Chinese economy righting itself as we did, yikes. We shall see.

This. The slumping Chinese economy can't be good for a company relying on it.

Makes sense, even the illegal DVD movie sellers have an 'official' license there!
