STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

NPR's business new starts with trouble for Apple in a giant market.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

INSKEEP: The trouble for Apple has come as it tries to sell its iPad tablet computers in China. In a city not far from Beijing, authorities have been seizing iPads from shopping malls and other retailers - not because they're fake, but because a Chinese company claims that it owns the iPad name. The company in question is Shenzhen Proview, and it registered the iPad name in China in 2001.

Greek Protesters Rally Against Drastic Cuts

Transcript

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

It's MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Even as Greek lawmakers approved another round of austerity, Greek protesters registered their dissent over the weekend. The bailout package is part of an effort by creditors to save Greece from default and a possible exit from the euro.

Joanna Kakissis reports from Athens.

Madonna Fan Would Be Irked By War With Iran

Originally published on Fri February 10, 2012 8:02 am

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. We have no evidence this is a mass movement, but at least one person seems to have a reason to urge Israel's prime minister to delay an attack on Iran. Israeli officials have been speculating out loud about a strike. Now a Facebook page is pushing for the war to wait, at least long enough to keep from disrupting a concert by Madonna in Tel Aviv. The page is called No War with Iran until After Madonna's Performance on May 29. You're listening to MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
