I swiped this from Weibo:
Men are like Bluetooth. As long as he’s next to you, he stays connected. But as you move away, he searches for others to connect to.
Women are like WiFi. They can see everything they can connect to but choose the best.
PCPop has an article with “recommended” (most popular?) eBook reading apps [Google Translate].

I’m intrigued by the claim that Watercress can do Kindle format eBooks. Do they really mean DRM-free MobiPocket?

This is a must-read: Shenzhen trip report – visiting the world’s manufacturing ecosystem
These chips were sold, not individually, but by the pound. Who buys chips by the pound? Small factories that make all of the cellphones that we all buy “new” will often be short on parts and they will run to the market to buy bags of that part so that they can keep the line running. It’s very likely that the “new” phone that you just bought from ATT has “recycled” Shenzhen parts somewhere inside.
The pivot from piracy to staking out intellectual property rights isn’t a new thing. The United States blatantly stole book copyright until it developed its own publishing very early in US history. The Japanese copied US auto companies until it found itself in a leadership position. It feels like Shenzhen is also at this critical point where a country/ecosystem goes from follower to leader.
They’re on the cutting edge over there.
If the current crop of tablet manufacturers would get their shit together, they’d be like the Japanese car companies pummeling the American car companies back in the day.
