    Sub-$100 Ice Cream Sandwich Tablet Debuts in China

    I've always liked Ingenic more than other Chinese processors companies, as they're a private player who produces stuff that are commercially viable rather than surviving on government contracts. Before this they mostly produced processors for netbooks, PMPs and e-book readers, etc. I hope...

    China Raises Ceiling for How to Count Poor

    The discussion on raising national poverty line has been going on for a while and I'm glad they finally took some action. Although I do find it amusing that WSJ has chosen to ignore the fact the World Bank poverty line of $1.25 is based on PPP instead of nominal exchange rate.

    So Jackie's 100th film is going to open across mainland China tomorrow with Japan and U.S. theatrical releases coming next month. It will also be the special opening film for this year's Tokyo International Film Festival. Also (and more importantly for me) this is going to be director Zhang...

    The Chinese singer-songwriters thread

    We certainly have a dearth of Chinese music threads on this forum. And the two existing threads are either very classical or too mainstream.

    Show them the money, old China

    Show them the money, old China Overall a pretty solid article, although I do think it went a bit too far trying to draw a line between the Princelings and the military-industrial complex, even though I agree there's a considerable number of Princelings in the military. The recent Maoist...

    I personally don't mind the few police cars but they really need to use a bit more discretion next time. Also with the one child policy, if the princelings marry among themselves their number is sure going to drop. I still fail to understand how on earth can parents name their kid...
