Chinavasion Bulletin – News, Views And FAQ’s From Your Man On The Ground In China
What’s been happening in the world of Chinavasion this week?
I do like that China has launched its own ‘peace prize,’ the Confucius Peace Prize, which is conveniently awarded the day before Nobel’s version. I expect to be nominated next year.
You think China is this weird place, far away, that doesn’t affect you? Think again. Like it or not, China is fast becoming the World’s bank. This week Portugal have been, cap-in-hand, to Beijing to ask China to buy their government’s bonds (or is that beg?), in order to try and stop their economy ‘doing an Ireland.’ Will it work? Will the world end up being China? Watch this space!
Nice to see more Chinavasion products online!
The Mini Projector with Wifi + Wireless Remote was covered by wired.com and hardwaresphere, and they thought it was cool to be able to connect wirelessly to the web and project Youtube videos etc. It is indeed cool, and the product is, at the time of writing, on special offer!
This week lovely marketing team colleague Kaya Xu gave us her very first blog, a review of the ground-breaking new sub 100 Euro unlocked Android phone, the Eclipse. I’m actually using one of these myself right now, and I have to say that the quality is great for the price and with the reasonably up-to-date Android 2.1 OS it’s a breeze to use!
Adrian’s Pick Of The Week
Do you have a computer? Don’t lie, I know you do, you’re looking at this blog right now! If so you’ll love the Laptop Desk Buddy (10 USB Ports, Multi-Card Reader, LAN, SIM, Audio, MIC) as these days you know that the USB ports on a laptop are always too few! I reckon almost anyone would appreciate one of these multi-purpose buddys, and at less than 25 bucks you can grab one for you and your mates today!
