Apple donated $8 million to China for the 7.0 earthquake in Sichuan Province and the company will provide the new Apple products to schools in some disaster areas. Now at the homepage of the official website in China, we can see the condolence from Apple.
On April 20, the earthquake in Sichuan Province destroyed countless houses and buildings, but what’s more painful, hundreds of people died and thousands of people were injured.
For victims in the earthquake, the donations can be very helpful. However, people just can’t help themselves to talk more, like why Apple does this. As we know, Apple is still recovering from a PR nightmare in China, where government-backed reports called the company out for unfair warranty practices.
The company is also inviting developers to localize their apps for more language markets, including for Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese.
It’s natural that Apple wants to do something to have a better image in China. Now at the Chinese technology forums, people are all talking about this. And this is an interesting thing, which is Apple donates 50 million RMB and Samsung donates 60 million RMB.
Beyond the earthquake, the disaster, the victims, the death and the people who are suffering, I guess we just talk too many those things that make no sense. May those who have passed away rest in peace, and may the survivors stay strong.
