Adiós, Fake Apple Stores!

The Chinese government and the investigating authorities have been involved in a big hustle over the past few weeks involving the fake Chinese Apple Stores in Kunming. The fake stores were the lime light of the city and the people behind it were reported when someone blogged about two apple stores in the city when there was no Apple store providing services in that area.

The Land of the Dragons is known for its counterfeit market and copyright infringement all over the globe more than it is known for Dragon remains and Emperors. The accused owner has even said that they were doing it for the good of the people and that they were doing Apple a favor and the employees claim that they were made to believe that this is an official Apple store.

Tesco Brings Virtual Shopping To Subway Stations

Tesco, known as Fresh & Easy in America, and Home Plus in South Korea has come up with the concept to use photos of grocery products, as well as QR codes. The grocery products will be displayed on billboards, subway stations, and users will simply have to scan the image using the camera on their smartphone and add the item to their virtual basket.

The users can also pay through the platform and have the items delivered to them on the same day. This means that working mothers can scan some vegetables, fruit, and a few other necessary products, continue on with their day and come home without having to visit the grocery store.

Redbox Will Soon Carry Videogames In Over 21,000 Locations

Redbox is a popular DVD rental kiosk that is found in many grocery stores. Users walk up to the big red machine and select from a list of popular movies and new releases. Consumers pay one or two dollars, and have a DVD vended out to them. Everything is done electronically of course, and the machines accept multiple forms of payment. To return the movie, customers simply scan the receipt and/or DVD and are merrily on their way.

Wal Mart Acquires Kosmix For Social Initiatives

In a time of buyouts, Wal-Mart is buying Kosmix, a social media company that is based in the heart of silicon valley, Mountain View, California. Although Wal-Mart did not mention specifics of the agreement, they did say that the acquisition will be instrumental in rolling out new social and mobile initiatives.

Wal-Mart continued in saying that the @WalmartLabs team will work hard on building its social and mobile commerce strategy in efforts to keep its online and in-store avenues in tact. I believe this is a necessary move for Wal-Mart, a corporation that now has physical stores in 15 countries and e-commerce businesses in nine countries.
