    about the AppleNaples

    That's clearly a fake! People in Naples can hardly speak/understand italian and, in that video, they clap the hands to every sentence in ENGLISH.. Then look at the people inside the store and evaluate if just one of them looks "italian" (forget from naples...) That side is registered into the godaddy mess

    The real italian first AppleStore will be opened in Rome when the iPhone will start selling here..

    So please, macnn people, start checking your news.. we have too many ruomours sites..

    It's Daylight SAVING Time, NOT "Savings" plural. Dumbasses. Wonder why think Americans are morons? Here's your prize.

    Ditto...

    Come on MacNN... not to demean Naples, Florida, but when you mention that place name without qualifiers, my first thought is Naples, Italy, you know, the "real" Naples, the one with more people, more culture and more history? Not to mention the one Naples Florida borrowed its name from in the first place. MacNN must rank among the top 3 Mac news sites anywhere, but this kind of "the world does not exist beyond the borders of the U.S." penchant is pretty damned annoying. Journalism, and the use of English, even on web sites, deserves attention and clarity. Please try to assume that all your readers are from the U.S., or can read between the lines. Still, it's a small mistake, so keep up the rest of the good work.
