A tour of Abit's factory: see how a mobo is made
EARLIER THIS WEEK, I toured Abit's factory in Suzhou, China. Located a little over an hour outside of Shanghai, Suzhou has a population about the size of metropolitan Kansas City. Of course, in China, this city of over a million souls is relatively small.
Don't let me get started on the mind-blowing size, scope, and growth of nearby Shanghai. This port city, teeming with nearly 20 million people, is almost incomprehensible. One might think someone had dropped a 200-megaton capitalism bomb on the place at the end of the Cold War, touching off an ongoing transformation. Skyscrapers are sprouting up like dandelions. Cranes dominate the skyline, working in packs, feverishly, as if to complete construction of some unseen plan before some untold deadline. The tens or hundreds of commercial skyscrapers are complemented by an equal or greater number of high-rise apartment buildings to house all the workers. Shanghai is like New York, Chicago, and Pittsburgh all jammed together, while construction companies work at breakneck pace to add in Houston and Seattle, as well.
