The Apple Store is a hectic place in China, so hectic that if you try to go in for a repair without an appointment, you can expect to wait all day. No big deal. This is what the black market for Genius Bar appointments is for.
Scalpers at the Beijing Apple Store just won’t quit. First they caused the store to close. Now Apple has reportedly tripled the store’s security and requires customers to be escorted upstairs to buy their iPhone 4. Madness!
