My lovely 2011 mac book air has died, again. It was repaired only a month ago. Exact same thing, m/b or main controller has fried. Last time had to wait one day to get hold of genius at bar, repair as quick in one day (that was nice). This time round i have to wait two days for the Genius! Apple I paid good money for your product and the AppleCare, you sit on cash like donald duck’s uncle would be proud of but even in China you refuse to hire staff to deal with the demand? This sucks. It will take exactly two minutes for the genius. You guys need to rework the system or you will find your industry leading service is panned.

There is a situation here I think you should know about.
Why should you be careful: do you know this person? If yes, would you expect them to write
as title. They kmow you or not??
A lot of google searching turned up nothing on the email address but the headers are interesting:
From: Su Huang <email@example.com> Reply-to: s.huang (at) kimo (dot) com To: firstname.lastname@example.org
kimo.com turns out to be a free webmail provider in Taiwan (Yahoo!!). alarm.
The originator is probably a real person whose email address has been hacked, reply email is not the same, but very similar, to evade suspicion.
Although email appears directed to me, it is probably just a BCC as the TO: in the header is the originator, not my email.
Trying out the IP address and email turned up nothing, so it seems this is a highly targeted attack, using apparently high value email addresses (I suspect collected from Hotmail, I have had four contacts have their Hotmail accounts hijacked in the last year).
Doing a google search on exact sentence used turns out a useful conversation on this website. (JKOWNERS) so I guess it’s good to double-check on any email that comes in, especially alarming ones that are apparently asking you to reply but give no info of their own. This is scam email that is asking you to answer and then becomes a classic Nigerian scam. Don’t do it!!!
It is worth reading the JKOWNERS thread as they talk about how they tagged the con artists along for fun.

Sudden burst of robotic nonsense coming out of Ukraine, quite what they think that this weak website has of use for them I do not know, but they have been trying quite hard all proportions kept.
(just one of many!)
One could argue that some form of spam is unavoidable on the Net but this is just stupid stuff, more just designed to bring the target website down due to spam volume and possibly to increase Google rankings for pill/sex fake sites through SEO tactics.
Basically a waste of time and electricity (at some point spammers will have to be fined for the energy that they have wasted by abusing a shared resource such as the Internet)

The newly opened Hatsune restaurant at the Village in Sanlitun is most probably going to become one of the dining hotspots there, as they have actually managed to really produce the goods in a setting that is slightly unusual (seas of dangling (paper?) fishes from the ceiling) and in one of the few places in Beijing that seems to be a moderately successful ‘shopping mall experience’.
