I'm still rather puzzle by why Apple doesn't have UnionPay for the App Store, western credit cards only.
Apple does operate in China, they have Apple Stores in Beijing and Shanghai, and they do a Chinese version of the App Store and iTunes Store. In China most people including myself, only have UnionPay cards. However my MBP was originally purchased in the UK, and is set to English language.
BTW most software I actually use is free or open source, Chrome, GIMP, VLC, Google Earth, VirtualBox(for running Windows), Pidgin, QQ, Skype, .. the only Apple software I use regularly is iTunes(for downloading podcasts) and iPhoto.
