Five years ago, #China had only 2 of the world’s largest publicly traded #techcompanies, while the #US had 9. Today, China has 9 of the top 20 and the U.S. has 11. Twenty years ago, China had none. #Chinesecompanies are already the world leaders in computer vision/facial recognition and speech recognition, which can be used for commerce and for surveillance and societal control. In just the last 2 years there has been an explosion of #fintech #startups in China, offering mobile payments, lending, brokerage and banking. And the No. 1 and 3 drone manufacturers in the world - DJI and Xiaomi - are Chinese.

China has grown incredibly these past 30 years with a very specific formula: hard work, unleashing capitalism, smart planning and long-range investments in education and infrastructure - but also by stealing intellectual property, forcing technology transfers and cheating on WTO rules. Historically the US could dominate the global scene and check a rising power like China, and set the global rules, with just our sheer physical mass - more money, more troops, more naval ships, more top-10 companies, more scientists and more universities. That is just not possible any longer, as China has become both big and smart in more and more areas.

Why have we seen so many one-stop races in 2018? F1's high degradation tyres aren't enlivening races the way they used to #F1

The 2018 season was supposed to see a return to multi-stop races. Why hasn't it happened, and does F1 still need high degradation tyres?

What is the point of paying R30,000 (US%2,100) for a smartphone?

A very good question... My Pixel 2 XL cost me just under R20,000 to import with duties and shipping and although it's a wonderful phone I'm not sure I'll do this again. For that price, I could have bought a pretty good average smartphone along with a high-end laptop or even a Macbook Air. Then consider what a good laptop does and that it lasts 5+ years whilst a phone is high risk and is used usually for 2 to 3 years only. I also don't think a 128GB was jusstified fro me as I only use around 20GB to 30GB space.

Someone just remarked to me this week that they remember really high-end phones costing around R8,000 only two to three years back.

Before jumping in and buying a high-end premium phone it is also just worth thinking about what you use the phone for. Even for photographs my Pixel 2 XL right now is more than good enough. If I want to take really high-quality photos then a really good DSLR camera is going to cost way less....

#Trump appeared taken aback at the start of his speech when he declared he had made more progress in two years than 'almost any other administration in the history of our country' - a claim that prompted audible murmurs and laughter from the foreign leaders and diplomats in the room. 'I didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s okay,' a smiling Trump said, provoking further laughter in the chamber.

Some in the audience grumbled during Trump's remarks when he said 'we reject the ideology' of #globalism and criticised nations such as Germany for agreeing to an oil pipeline with Russia. When Trump criticised socialism, a member of the Swedish delegation frowned with disapproval.
