I just spent 10 days in China. One of the best quotes from a general manager of one of the companies we visited was "We don't care about taking over the world. We are just trying to feed out 1.3 billion people." The Chinese are even less interested in politics than US people are. 4% of their population belongs to the Communist party. Very few people pay even the slightest bit of attention to political issues there. Unfortunately, misconceptions are running rampant in this country concerning China. But, just like always, lies and rumors travel much better than the truth and sells more newspapers.The Chinese are out to get us NASTY Americans!!! Forget the terrorists.
Go pick up the September 2007 edition of Popular Science, it has a picture of a knock-off iPhone on the cover. Pretty interesting article in there about Chinese knock-offs.They should stick to fortune cookies, and leave automobile design to the professionals.
