CUBE: Delay Windows 10 Upgrade

Weibo:

Windows 10 upgrade won’t work because CUBE hasn’t finished all the necessary drivers.

Not fun for owners of CUBE hardware.

The New China Syndrome

A Chinese Entrepreneur’s Rude Awakening at a German Manufacturing Fair

I also noticed that many visitors did not trust products made in China. They either showed contempt or were afraid of them. In order to promote our website, we visited all exhibition halls and talked to many customers. Not many people were interested in Chinese companies. They did not pay much attention. Some even said: “We do not do any business with Chinese companies, please stop!”
