    Excuse me, what can the Chinese scientist do with an apple cutting other than eating it?

    Ive confused you.
    Up to the 1960's the fruit was called 'Chinese Goosberry'.When we tried to export the fruit to the U.S. they would not accept the word Chinese as part of the name of the fruit
    So we had to change the name before it was allowed into the U.S.

    A 'cutting' is a small piece of pruned tree branch that has buds on it.
    The idea is to graft the buds onto other root stock and presto you then have specimens of the newly developed apple variety.
    .NZ is a world leader pf.apple varities.
    We have also bred a red fleashed variety of kiwifuit which some other Kiwifruit growing.countries wouldnt mind getting their hands on.

    Okay then. My idea of apple cutting was the cutting of the apple fruit itself. Lol.

    That is stealing since it takes enormous time and effort as well as knowledge with a great amount of trial and error to successfully cross breed to make a better variety.
    Taking a sample and smuggle it into another place to make a copy is a crime.

    If you're set on Huawei Phone. Perhaps you can refer to Huawei's NZ specific phone offerings. Included below is link with the spec to check with your carrier.

    Eh, gray area. If we're gonna be strict, everything's a crime. Taking Chinese Kiwi to New Zealand is a crime. British stealing Chinese tea is a crime. Japanese stealing Chinese pottery techniques is a crime. Making paper, gunpowder, compass, etc... are all crimes unless you pay China. When you buy a coloring book but have 4 kids so you copy a page 4 times for each to have something to color, that's a crime. When you pass a test then give your friend tips to pass it too, that's crime. When you buy something then figure it's simple enough to make the next one yourself, it's a crime. When you make a mix tape, that's a crime. Download a free game or watch a free movie and it's a crime. Don't be a prick about "crimes." If you're gonna complain about things like that, then either protect your IP better or don't make things that are easily copied.

    F*cking right. These pricks just love to cherry pick so it suits them oh so conveniently. But they lack the cognitive focus to realise their double standards. It's just me me me me me with these assholes.
