So you think it worrying that Chinese industry is capable of delivering high quality?

You are right, in a sense. While everyone buying cheap Chinese crap because it is cheap (in both money and quality), Chinese industry is capable of creating really high quality products "behind our backs", because most of us turn their back to them.

China is selling us Cheap Crap because we want to buy Cheap Crap (they even have a 'CC' symbol for it Smile | :) ). Thinking that the Chinese industry is capable of nothing but Cheap Crap may be the most fatal misjudgement of this century.

You get what you pay for. If you pay for high Japanese quality, you get it. If you pay for high American quality, you get it. If you pay for high Chinese quality, you get it.

Straw Poll

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
