    Volvo Reveals the New Polestar 2 Electric Performance Vehicle

    This phenomenon has gone through cycles in Chinese history. It depends very much on the almighty Chinese ruler.

    China Hates Apple

    Chinese AI Beats 15 Doctors in Tumor Diagnosis Competition

    I don't understand this news. It said "the system defeated a team comprised of 15 of China’s top doctors by a margin of two to one".

    China to go Full Dystopia With Mandatory Vehicle RFID Chips in 2019

    This fact has no meaning to apologists for China. The fact that the RFID is mandatory vs other "whatabout" does not matter to the apologists either.
