This week, our top Apple news discussed Apple's first update to Lion, why Nintendo won't dive into iOS devices just yet, fake Apple stores in China, and Apple's actions against Samsung in Europe. There's also some renewed buzz about Apple's still-unannounced fall Apple event, as well as new rumors about LTE iPhones. Read on for the roundup:
22 more "fake" Apple Stores found in China; how many more are there?: First, the Internet went crazy over a blogger's account of an "Apple Store" in China that happened to be entirely unauthorized. Then two were shut down. Now, 22 more have been ordered to quit using Apple's trademarks in China. But this is just the beginning.
We may want Mario on the iPhone, but Nintendo won't slit own throat: Nintendo has so far refused to release games for Apple's popular mobile devices. With slagging sales of the Wii and the lackluster launch of the 3DS causing the company a loss for the second quarter, investors are asking the company to reconsider. But it won't happen as long as president Satoru Iwata is in charge.
