Apple Services Shut Down in China in Startling About-Face

I can see across the ocean from up here.
Panzer was out in the Catosphere yesterday just taking in the sights and enjoying himself. Our big bad kitty boy happened to stumble across a post at The New York Times site about Apple. Not wanting to disrupt your habit of reading his Monday Panzerism, he decided to save it until today.

According to the post by Paul Mozur and Jane Perlez, Apple is having problems in China. China's State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television regulator shut down Apple's iBooks Store and iTunes Movies. One reason for the shut down may be that these two are in competition with some Chinese Internet companies. Speculation is that Apple Pay may be next because it too is in competition with other Chinese companies.

Panzer says, "It seems to this little kitty ... If you're a U.S. company and successful in China, you are going to get spanked and sent home."

This is a long and complicated post. You will need a cup of tea and two muffins for today's read.
