The move is part of Apple's efforts to become compliant with local regulations which stipulate that a foreign phone maker needs to have at least 30 percent domestic content in order to sell phones in the country. The company committed to invest $44 million to set up an R&D centre in the country last year. Apple did not immediately respond to CNET's request for comments. Apple is not alone in moving to boost local content in Indonesia so as to meet regulations and be able to retail its phones in the country. It was reported in November 2015 that Lenovo began producing its 4G phones in the country as part of the company's commitment to meet the regulation.

No, not a headless chicken. So let's talk ostriches. Slipped into the Galaxy S8 launch entertainment was an extremely arresting Samsung ad. An ostrich walks up to a table -- stop me if you've heard this one before -- and sticks its head into a Samsung Galaxy VR Gear headset, attached (presumably) to a Galaxy S8. This gives the ostrich ideas. It starts dreaming of a life beyond its own. Yes, a life in which it wears one of these headsets all the time without, hopefully, having to obey Supreme Ruler Mark Zuckerberg.
Oddly, the Samsung VR makes this ostrich run around like a headless chicken, Until, one day, the impossible happens, No, the ostrich doesn't suddenly stop feeling nauseous because of the VR, Instead, oh, watch the ad, It's beautifully done, but the ending isn't so hard to imagine, I'm fascinated by the message Samsung is imparting here, "We make obliq xtreme pro iphone 6s / iphone 6 dual layered tough case - blue reviews what can't be made," the company says, This is unquestionably true, No one could ever make a phone that exploded not once, but twice, even after a supposed all-clear..
Still, the ad follows this with: "So you can do what can't be done." Samsung, it seems, wants you to think of it as you think of Nike -- a brand that is first in helping you just do it, even if you're an ostrich who just wants to flap those big ole' wings and fly. Nike played the enabling rebel well for a long time. Samsung, too, has proved its prowess at getting a lot of those extremely hip and self-conscious YouTube viewers to virally turn its way. It also tried to outcool Apple at the Oscars by initiating its "do what you can't" idea.
