iPhone 4 Scalpers Force Apple to Shut Down Beijing Flagship Store

iPhone 4 Scalpers Force Apple to Shut Down Beijing Flagship Store

The Chinese grey market is a lucrative place to find gadgets, and pretty much anything else. Popular items include high-priced gadgets, like many of Apple's devices, and it looks like the iPhone 4 hasn't escaped the attention. All over the world where the newest iPhone is sold, it's a common practice for customers to buy up a large quantity of the devices, and then send them over to China, where they can be re-sold in the grey market.

Latest iPhone explosion in Belgium; French watchdog begins investigation

All eyes are on Snow Leopard and the growing queues outside Apple stores today - we're told London's Regent Street store had a line round the block before it opened - but another exploding iPhone report could sour the good mood at Cupertino.

Apple are reportedly beginning an investigation into the various cases where iPhones have exploded in Europe, a sensible tactic considering the spate of hissing, steaming and smashing smartphones we've heard of over the past few weeks.  The company maintains its belief that "these are isolated incidents and that there is not a general problem", however.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 9, 2012

Welcome to Thursday folks, just one more work day before arriving at the weekend. Today we had next to nothing about the Apple vs. Samsung trial, except for the news that a similar South Korean trial has been frozen for fear of it becoming too similar to the one being held here in the US. The lack of Apple vs. Samsung news leaves room for far more interesting things, however, like space! The Curiosity rover sent back a color panoramic shot of the surface of Mars along with its first full resolution image, and it's a pretty awesome sight. Sadly, it wasn't all exciting news for NASA today, as the Morpheus moon lander failed during a flight test and exploded into flames. Luckily no one was hurt, but this is still a pretty big setback for the folks at NASA.

OUYA’s millions: Kickstarter and the lure of the rumor-mill

It may not be Pebble's $10m, but with OUYA's $8m Kickstarter has its newest standard-bearer, and around sixty thousand sets of eyes turn to the mailbox for the promised early-2013 deliveries. It's a surprising degree of patience - however ill-suffered - considering the short-shrift we give most products, software updates or even just the regular postal service if they dare to make us wait. Immediate gratification is arguably at odds with today's trends, but there's another angle that makes Kickstarter so appealing: it's the rumor-mill we can buy into.
