iPhone and MacBook maker has confirmed that a range of its services, including iTunes Movies and iBooks, have just become unavailable in the country. The official statement followed the reports that Chinese authorities had ordered them to be taken offline. Apple also announced that the company hoped to make books and movies available again to its customers in China as soon as possible.
iTunes Movies and iBooks were launched in China just a half year ago, but have already been shut down. The tech firm did not disclose a reason for the closure. The Chinese government strictly controls broadcast, print and online media sources, at the same time restricting access to many foreign websites and social networks, including Google, Facebook and Twitter. The country exercises control through a vast network dubbed the Great Firewall of China. Besides, the authorities quickly block the content deemed politically sensitive, violent or morally “unhealthy”.
Industry experts point out that China remains a key market for the California-based company, because iPhones, iPods, iPads and MacBooks are widely popular in the country. However, state-run media has previously targeted Apple over such issues as service and pricing. For example, the state broadcaster CCTV accused Apple of threatening national security through the iPhone’s feature tracking a user’s location. In response, Apple quickly denied this threat.

|A dictatorial regime fears most is the people to understand what a true democracy, not they instill imposed on the people's thinking of the so-called democracy, communism why no fight, is because we can not understand the true meaning of democracy, there is no chance to see a democratic way, all of this was blocked in the Great Wall. So, please don't think don't need to democracy, but the yield under power temporarily.|
|I do not see really a difference between capitalism/democracy and communism...|
Capitalism: People who have money put puppet in the government and let the crowd THINK that they can do what they want in a pseudo democracy and live on fake hopes.
Communism: People who have power govern the country, they just don't let think that the crowd can do what they want, may be it's better like that you do not have fake hopes.

|I'm guessing ndy000 is another brainwashed murican who hasn't realized there's almost nothing democratic about the united states government. Even if you manage to stir the rabble the big boys are still in charge and decide whether to appease the rabble.|
The fact that Shillary and Trump are the only candidates with a chance to win is proof elections are rigged, too.
