Hong Kong iTunes opens to controversy over use of Mandarin pinyin
I have tried to keep track of these stories when they crop up, and it is normally via the BadCanto blog, to its credit, that I hear about these issues.
Previous posts on this topic here and here and full of July the 1st spirit, here.
A number of Canto-pop songs listed on iTunes HK have the titles listed in Mandarin / Puntonghua pinyin. Complaints from Hong Kong residents have seen iTunes try to rectify this issue…
One forum complaint is listed below. For the full story visit the BadCanto blog.

Cantonese songs, why all of them are in Mandarin transliterations?
I love this app. However, Apple please respect the original creation and use Cantonese song name. The fee is charged in Hong Kong Dollar. However, names of songs are all in Mandarin transliterations. I totally can’t understand! If there are market needs, then use both languages. Respect consumers of different regions.

回歸後當權者帶領香港走向自私之路,自由、平等、大方慷慨及開放的普世價值正逐漸消失,「集體自私」取而代之,市民在居港權問題上,因為自身利益,寧願相信政府的「大話」,「香港社會好悲哀,當人人只抱自私心,其實已變成野獸」。
﹣ 陳日君

回歸後本港「犬儒主義」抬頭,市民明知政府空口講白話,卻因自己無力改變現實而選擇妥協,對錯誤事物視若無睹。

大亞灣核電廠兩個反應堆,比日本福島縣的大超過一倍,但距離香港只有不足 50公里,若發生爆炸,本港市民隨時避無可避。今次事故正好讓港府有機會深切反思是否要增加核電供應,「減省用電亦係方法」。
