Re: Explanation
You. Any have noticed that the Chinese government made public statements that that is untrue. It's now understood that this is untrue.

Re: Explanation
The macdailynews.com cites Caixin Online as a source, Caixin does mention the energy-saving properties of a product as the problem, but it also mentions security concerns.

This is the exact quote:
"Meanwhile, the Global Times cited Li Wei, a national security specialist, as saying that the government might have considered the purchase costs and Apple's system compatibility along with security concerns when excluding the company from the list. Li is the director of the Security and Strategic Research Institute at the China Institute of Contemporary International Relations."

Re: Explanation
C/net just regurgitates the same garbage that we read elsewhere. We now have official Chinese government confirmation that it's not security, and that indeed, Chinese government agencies are still allowed to buy these Apple products, and are, in actually, doing so.

Re: Explanation
I thought the same thing as well.  I heard that there is a big push in china for using Linux, they even have their own distribution. But I guess as powerful their economic is, they are they still need western technology.

Re: Explanation
Security has nothing to do with this at all. It's just that Apple didn't submit their data soon enough. It will be resolved. Now, articles are coming out with the correct information. This is why it's not always a good idea to try to be first in writing about something in this field, especially when it comes to something like this, regarding foreign governments. It's best to wait for confirmation.

Re: Explanation
It's just an excuse from Chinese

They said 'security' and then 'energy'

Why do they ban windows 8? If they could they'll everything from MS. It's difficult to move users away from windows world.

Re: Explanation
Thanks for the update.  The media needs to do it's homework.

 

I must also add, since I can't resist...I'm surprised by this article for the following reason.  I wasn't aware the Chinese government actually "buys" any technology from the U.S.

But this is hardware.  I'm thinking software...
