With all the attention paid last week to the news of completely fake Apple stores popping up in China, you figured Chinese officials had to do something. Apparently, they started investigating, and shut down some of the fake Apple stores that were found in Kunming city. Perhaps most interesting, however, is that they let some of the stores stay open -- including the very story discovered by the BirdAbroad blog, which kicked off all of this attention. Apparently, officials found that that particular store "has a licence to trade and is selling genuine Apple products."
