SonyOB: An astounding image.
The harmony of the colors she is wearing is on the spot. Technically the picture is excellent and I really like the halo that seems to surround her that defines her hair. Lovely!

Just don't look too closely at the skin...

Alphoid: 25 years ago, good business laptops cost $2000-$5000, and worked really well ($4000-$10,000 in today's dollars). Today, no one makes good business laptops. Thinkpad quality has been going down the tubes since IBM. Apple has been going downhill since Jobs. Dell went downhill a long time ago (for those used to consumeriffic Dells, their premium lines were pretty good for a while -- high-end Latitude and most Precision).

I'd kind of like those back. At some point, everyone started competing on price rather than quality.

Luckily, we have Huawei.

Ric 360: I use a new M1 MacBook with a 4K monitor. I recently tried to edit some 4K 10 bit 4:2:2 video and found it to be a breeze.
Originally I dreamed of a new 16 inch M1 MacBook, but the 13 inch is more portable and when at home I only have to plug in one USB C cable to access my 4K monitor, SSD drive, keyboard, mouse and charging cable.

In my opinion, the MacBook Air is the best design Apple has ever come up with.
I really fancy the MBA with the M1 processor.
Right now, I have the 2018 model with the fluttering butterfly keyboard.
I feel the need to upgrade. Only that I am in France...c'est pas si simple, monsieur...
Oh, if you only knew how simple things can be complicated when you really do not get it but you pretend that you do. "Oui, monsieur, mais if faut nous fournir..."
All the smart Frenchmen have already moved to the US or Quebec.

Michael Piziak: I use to be an Apple fan boy (for years).
Since I discovered Linux (Ubuntu), no more.

You can port Ubuntu to Mac now. Why would you, but it is possible.

If they get rid of Tim Cook, I will buy one.

SonyOB: China shows what it is capable of.
As I understand everything is home-made from the rocket engines to the integrated circuits and everything between This is a serious statement.
If they can place this robot on the Moon, they can place all kinds of things wherever they want on Earth. It is a gigantic project with 'billions and billions' points where things can go wrong. Everything went smoothly.
The home audience can cheer at the little red flag that was planted there.
This is a scary demonstration of how potent a fascist monolith country can be.
They have their own Einsteins and Von Brauns and if that's not enough, they have their spies planted in Stanford and MIT, among others.
I think we should keep an eye on them

@TsaiProject
Monolith is the impression China wants to give to the outside.
There is only one China. The Party is the People.
There is a lot of effort in creating/maintaining this image.
I am aware of the hundreds of languages and ethnicities and internal immigration, as they call it. It takes a lot of force to keep China together which is something dogooders cannot understand. China is not a spontaneous, grass-root phenomenon. It is created for a purpose.
As to the Chinese trinkets, it is only the surface.
Did you see the bridge they constructed in China and floated and installed in Sweden? Trinkets, my foot!

@MyReality
You have a single party, you have an unfailing leader present everywhere, you have a remarkable portion of the population spying for the state, you isolate and kill the opposition, you create an external enemy to justify the 'defense' spending and you show your weaponry in parades. In China, it is Han, in the Reich, it was the Folk. CCP does not talk about race, they Just Do It. The justice system is a Kafkaesque farce where laws are cut to fit the situation.
Communists socialized the production, Fascist let their goons run it.
That's the only difference I can think of. Are Fascists a bit less corrupted, maybe?

If your question is about the Chinese government, I think the best way to describe it would be fascist.

Miike Dougherty: China is on a mission to show its technological prowess. Some of my best Nikon and 3rd party lenses are now made in China. I remember in the 1950's when Japan made junk. By the 90's, Japan was the gold standard for manufacturing and Chinese products were junk. Now in 2020, China is beginning to set the standard for manufacturing. I don't think this will go away as the Chinese are very innovative and have 1.4 billion people to pull their talent from.

You get what you pay for.
In the near future, the best value will be coming from Vietnam and India.

This Zeiss is not a workhorse, it is an elephant, a white one.

Referring to their latest quarter results.

My mirrorless Sonys are doing just great. My Canon 5D3 shows its age but so do I. There is no going back.
