In my company its officially called "best cost", since the word "cheap" has such a nasty connotation, particularly with the customer. So we have "best cost" suppliers and "best cost" locations in eastern Europe and China/India and central America.

No $hit, im dead serious!

Due to my cynical nature, I do get a kick out of euphemistic policies. They remind me of how easy it is to affect the views of most people just by changing a few words around even if actions which they define remain the same Smile

I actually don't care that everything is made in China, but I still reserve the right to talk shit about it in an effort to make fun of the world and everyone in it.

I'll pass


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Now they've got a wall *and* a bridge. Wau.

(But also I love China and everyone should go visit. Too bad I don't live there anymore)

Is the "great firewall" still up?
Last year a (american) co-worker of mine was in Shanghai, and when i tried to send him stuff the data transfer rate was like in the mid 90s. He explained its due to the "great firewall".
Thought he was bullshitting me first until i fired up wiki, and my jaws dropped....

It's actually getting worse in terms of what you can and can't go to online, but still as easy to bypass as ever. Just not without sacrificing a lot of speed.

As someone who's an ex-window fixer that bridge is still a whole lot'a "Nope!" for me.
