    At least he retained the (tm), meaning it's basically a tautology.

    If mass production is always scheduled for Two Months from now, then when it happens, it'll be Two Months early!

    We especialy lerned that it makes an big difference if you are a small Europe company or a small Chinese company. In China, they have backup by their gouvernment and basicly everything they need right next door. In Europe, you basicly have to fight against everyone to achive such things like an Handheld device. That's really not fair.

    Well, we let the capitalists decide all things that matter in our society. So, I'd say, it's well deserved.

    Then again one can move to a semi-communist state of China, so no reason to complain either. Grew up in two countries with a very different type of communism, don't miss those days a bit. Not that capitalism is without its flaws, but they pale compared to all tried alternatives.

    Because we can abandon our source of income, friends, family, and house in order to try to build up a new life from scratch on our own in a country with a very different language, writing system, culture, and laws we have no reason to complain? What is your reasoning behind that? It seems to me that we would have the right to stay were we build up our lives and have our friends and family and still get treated properly. If I come to your house every night and wake you up by making a lot of noise, do you have no right to complain because you can just go live in another house?

    Do they really have government backup? Wouldn't seem likely to me, but I'll be honest, I don't know much about how China's business ecosystem works

    If I'm not mistaken, every "communism" in and out of existence has or had one political party, that does what it wants, while the latter would be having it look like communism. Those would be dictatorships by minority and thus not communism.

    Gregor Gysi (German left wing politician) likes to state, there have been only three attempts at actual socialism and all three have been undone early on by external forces. I keep forgetting which they were, but I think two of them were Paris Commune and Prague Spring.

    I didn't wanted to start a political debate, my statement was only meant for the different business side of things there and here.
    Chinese companies often benefit from big subsidies and support by the gouvernment. So this makes it extra hard for western companies to compete. This is what I call unfair.
