Default Mega of Hardware origin - China

The Mega of Personal Computer hardware center, China makes more hardware for PC than any other places in the world while some of the sales and marketing functions are being handled by Taiwan for now. There is no better place than Guangzhou, China in terms of weather; gourmet food; access to sea port; the city has more than 2,800 years of history.

A reader asked for more information in regards to how to get there (China). Without the specifics, here is some general info. By the way, I live in the U.S. (Chicago).

1) I trust most foreigners will require an entry Visa which can be in three catagories; Business, Vacation; Student. Check with your local Chinese Consulate. For Americans, your Visa fee is higher (don't ask me why).

2) I used to fly to China on business trips. Non-stop flight should be considered otherwise the total time could be as high as >24 hours.

3) If you are from the U.S., there are direct flights to Hong Kong, Bejing and Shanghai from NY, Chicago and L.A.

4) Don't bring much clothing with you but a pair of good walking shoes. Clothings are very inexpensive there and good shoes are hard to find.

Glad you like the pics

Got some more that I didn't think are good enough.


The usual way in getting people from point A to point B inside a city.


Man made water fall.


A shot of a quiet city street.


To have peace of mind just by starring at this.

Microsoft admits censoring Chinese journalist

I tasted it personally; then, the "watching" stopped 10 days later. I guess there is nothing for me to hide.
