it seems you cherry-picked the last post, just like the previous one and ignored (again) what i was really saying so that you could continue to plug your comparison. my statement from the previous post: that's unfortunate you have to belittle china just because it's not spectacular to you. how do i know? because i wasn't making the argument you are pretending. YOU want to make sure it's loud and clear to everyone that this is nothing new as the op is trying to make it seem. i never said it was new technology or some breakthrough. i know something about computers, pompous jerk. i also know it's not on the same league to the possibilities of quantum computing. i was just stating it's great they are building their country and doing what they can. i still don't understand why you pretend i'm arguing that china is leading in innovation. i stated that is not the case but perhaps they "could" or "would" innovate in the future and i disagree with you that it's not possible. you seem somehow upset that i even stated that. if you think they can't, then so be it. of course, i didn't mean they were literally "your" chips or billions of chips. you don't think i know that computer chips are owned by a company and not you? are you that dense? when i say they should be commended is an overall issue and that is they are trying to do the best they can. it was a poor country and they are trying to better themselves. i suppose it would make you feel better if they just did nothing. but you seem to want to belittle their efforts.
