Chinese made has become quite good. When Japan first started producing a lot of it was mediocre. Now they are the best engineers in the world.
There's probably a lot of Germans (and others) who would disagree with you.
My opinion is that the Chinese are very good at copying & stealing the ideas of others. Unlike you, I don't hold out my opinions as incontrovertible fact.
I have computer programming experience, so of course my views are going be coherent. Go with whatever view makes the most sense, it is the right opinion.
I agree that the Chinese have some questions to answer in regards to copyright and patent. China is still a third world country, turn a blind eye for now shall we?
So they can shaft us later? No, I don't think so. A pre-emptive strike might be more what's needed. That's obviously from a Western perspective; as someone else said earlier, I have a concern as to how this will pan out in the years to come.
China has a navy 250,000 strong. The RAN is <15,000 strong. WW3 WITHOUT the involvment of Australia is how it could pan out.
China won't go to war,there's too much money to be made from trading with the rest of the world.
The west may not be comfortable with China's human rights and imperialism but they(or us)will have to accept it....imho.
As for copying...anyone remember that episode of top gear when they were in China?.....
PanasonicTX-P46GT30B..Yamaha RX-A1010...Music Fidelity M3i...OPPO105EU...KEFR100/R200C/3001SE/HTB2SE...SkyHD2TB...QED Copper Speaker Cable /HDMI/Analogue...PS3...IPAD2
It's not all about the money, and this is the reason why the western world is going to have problems with China.
My opinion is that the Chinese are very good at copying & stealing the ideas of others.
Ahem, "technology transfer" please. And doesn't hosting so much global manufacturing provide the ideal opportunity for it.
China built their high speed rail network and boasted that they'd be selling the technology and knowhow to the world, despite the fact that they'd basically ripped off European and Japanese Tech. The Japanese media enjoyed a serious bout of schadenfreude when there was a major crash soon afterwards.
