Apple's products become hi-tech toys among Chinese people


13:07, August 14, 2011

The combo photo taken on Aug. 12, 2011 shows people use Apple's electronic gadgets in Beijing, capital of China. Apple surpassed energy giant Exxon Mobil on Wednesday with a market value of 337 billion U.S. dollars, making the consumer electronics pioneer the largest U.S. company by market capitalization. Apple's electronic gadgets, known for the eye-catching design and smooth user experience, have won the heart not only of the young people, but also the mid-aged and senior users. Nowadays in China, iPhones, iPads and MacBooks are no longer rarities; they actually became hi-tech toys for both kids and adults. The bitten apple has triggered an "apple rush" not only among the Chinese electronic products lovers, but also among the world's geeks. (Xinhua/Xu Zijian)
