My friend bought an iMac here last year from the Beijing store-the main one, totally legit. She couldn't get Skype to start up on it. It would come up, but would never correctly connect. We reinstalled Skype several times. I used it all the time from my macs brought here from the USusing a VPN tunnel to connect. Her's wouldn't connect even with the tunnel. Finally I just wiped her whole hard drive and reinstalled from system discs gotten in the US. Then it worked fine. So we're wondering, is Apple colluding with the Commies to modify their computers to do what the gov wants? Anyone else had this issue or know anything about it? I posted this question at apple.com and it was taken down almost instantaneously. So that makes me even more curious if they're hiding something.
