Apple fan sends robot to hold place in line for new iPhone.

This Australian woman sure knows how to take advantage of the latest technology — by outsourcing her wait in line to a robot outside a local Apple store. The first in the queue doesn’t even like Apple, the next two want to drop the iPhone as soon as it’s handed to them, and not far behind them is a robot – this is the Sydney queue for the iPhone 6s.Hong Kong: On a bustling street in China’s southern boomtown of Shenzhen, more than 30 stores carrying Apple Inc.’s iconic white logos peddle pre-orders for the new iPhone, a gadget that has become a status symbol among many better-off Chinese. Tents and even an inflatable couch line the side of the George Street building where the first of the new iPhones will be available to the public at 8am on Friday. Many of the stores look just like Apple’s signature outlets, right down to the sales staff kitted out in blue T-shirts bearing the company’s white logo and the sample iPads and iWatches displayed on sleek wooden tables.

The robot is made of an iPad attached to a remote-controlled Segway-type stand and was welcomed by others waiting in line and even posed for selfies and pictures with curious and amazed bystanders. Kelly said that she is connected to the robot consistently through an app where she can see through the iPad camera and talk to others in line with the iPad speakers and microphone.

The streaming service has crunched the numbers and has come up with a nifty equation that pinpoints the moment audiences commit to watching a show all the way to the end. The rapid increase in copycat Apple stores underscores the popularity of the brand in China, where it doubled its revenue in the third quarter from a year earlier to more than $13 billion, and suggests the US tech giant is on course to shrug off weakening consumer spending in its second biggest market. “There are many Apple fans in China,” said a clerk surnamed Zhao at one of the unauthorised dealers that opened just two weeks ago. “There are many silly people in China who are willing to pay extra money just to get a new iPhone ahead of everyone else.” The latest iteration of the iPhone, featuring larger screens and longer battery life, will only be available on the launch date in China to customers who have reserved online, and the company has said pre-order demand has outstripped supply. Netflix analysed data from January to July of this year in countries including Brazil, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, the UK and the US. Shenzhen’s unauthorised Apple stores are taking advantage, banking on quick-hit gains from re-selling devices bought via authorised sales channels for as much as double the official price to consumers unwilling to wait weeks for stock to arrive. You’ll get to keep your current user name (as long as it doesn’t contain invalid characters, in which case you’ll have to go through a few extra steps to make the transfer), and all your old comments will eventually (not immediately) migrate with you.

Several workers at the stores said they were buying iPhone models in China and in overseas markets such as the US and Hong Kong, from where they would be smuggled across the border into the mainland. On the back, you see the color you selected as well as the memory capacity—something you should check before you leave the store, to make sure you get the right one. Like most recreational drugs, different shows have different effects on viewers, and the data on the addiction equation therefore is a little all over the place. Inside the box, you find the phone, some typical instructional and regulatory pamphlets, Apple’s Earpods headphones, a power adapter and a Lightning cable.

According to the streaming company, Australians — we of discerning tastes — apparently remain eminently more resistant to the binge than our American brothers and sisters. But the widespread unauthorised reselling of even genuine goods can make it harder for companies such as Apple to manage their brands and risks disrupting longer term plans. Washington has repeatedly pressed China to do more to protect intellectual copyright in the country, a call reiterated by the White House this week as Chinese president Xi Jinping arrived in the US for a week-long visit. Just a stone’s throw from the street of copycat stores, tucked away in a giant tech mall, two shops offer the logos, uniforms, display shelves and shopping bags needed to make an unauthorised outlet feel like a genuine Apple store.

Some shops have blocked signs that read “authorized Apple seller” with promotional banners and covered Apple logos on staff uniforms with stickers, although several vendors said business had not been affected. Others in the industry said the fake Apple store had become so popular that it was just a matter of time before some shops would be forced to close as the market becomes saturated. Back at the tech mall, Yang Fei, owner of a shop that helps unauthorized dealers set up specialized cellphone stores, said it might be time for Apple dealers to think about switching to other brands. “Look at all the shops out there on the street. Surprisingly, the threshold for Netflix addiction was lowest in Australia for legal drama Suits and thriller The Killing, which took just three episodes to hook viewers into completing the entire series. Contrary to popular opinion, pilots are not what get viewers hooked, at least not according to Netflix’ numbers. “Given the precious nature of primetime slots on traditional TV, a series pilot is arguably the most important point in the life of the show,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer for Netflix. “However, in our research of more than 20 shows across 16 markets, we found that no one was ever hooked on the pilot.

This gives us confidence that giving our members all episodes at once is more aligned with how fans are made.” The data compiled by Netflix has the potential to create new metrics for TV viewing. Instead of counting the number of eyeballs on a particular show at a particular time, this data allows Netflix and other streaming services to measure a level of engagement and commitment not given priority in traditional entertainment measurements.
