    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. During the cultural revolution, most of the people who had backbones or ethics were purged. You had to be a slime ball to survive that period. Subsequently, China has gone backwards in...

    China Hates Apple

    US needs to wean off cheap Chinese labor. It is like opium, it feels good when you are able to buy cheap goods and you develop a dependence on it.

    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". It also said, "BioMind was correct 87 percent of the time, compared to 66 percent by the medical professionals." That's not 2 to 1. The only 2 to 1 margin is the...

    New Research Shows That Owning an iPhone Is the Most Common Sign of Wealth

    May not be now. But when the iphone 8 and X were introduced, there're tons of Apple iphone ads. And if you watched any World Cup broadcast, every 15 minutes or so there's an Apple ad. It's so annoying. It got so irritating that I just turned off the sound when the Apple ads were on.

    Bitcoin Prices Were Manipulated

    So smart guy, can you tell us what information you use to read this type of asshatery? Why didn't you come out with a paper at that time telling all of us this manipulation? Your delusion is just over the top. I have seen many people like you during the dotcom boom, denial, denial, denial.
