Pan Shiyi, real estate tycoon and president of SOHO China, posted the following tweet on Weibo earlier today, “The Board of Apple should decide right now to mass produce a new iPhone and iPad under 1000 yuan, and allow more people to afford Apple. This is the best way to commemorate Jobs.”
One widely retweeted response by a netizen read as follows, “If someday President Pan passes away, please release houses below 1000 yuan per sq metre, billions of people will commemorate you.”
Pan deleted his post soon afterwards.
