A teenager girl shouted to her mom for not buying her iPhone, iPad3 and Apple laptop. She claimed she will not attend the college without those Apple products cause it's shameful in front of her classmates.
What a weird world !
Do you share the same feeling and think the Apple products are a glory to you?

sure, I don't care too, but I'm not Chinese...

Apple product can "americanise" Chinese, the same like eating at KFC or McD's.
This is a status symbol too.
IMHO if this is a rich familly, so this is nothing wrong with buying that "toys". The same case like manager will not wear cheap Casio or Timex watch (not only in China).

Problem begins, when it is poor familly, that wants to "gain face" by buying expensive gadgets...

But this is not only problem in China.

For example in Poland some families "have to" perform expensive, 2-3 days long, wedding party, even if they will pay bills for it for many years...

and even if because of that "just married" will have to live with their parrents for that period of time. And I'm talking for large amounts of money - that wedding, even in rural area, can cost 50k USD and up... (sky is the limit), when average monthly income is about 1kUSD per person.

Is that any similar situation in Your countries?
