Rest Of The World Races Ahead Of Dying Empire

India unveils world's cheapest laptop

"India has developed the world's cheapest laptop – a touchscreen device which resembles Apple's wildly popular iPad but will cost just £23.
The prototype was unveiled today by Kapil Sibal, the country's human resource development minister, who said 110 million Indian schoolchildren would be the first recipients.
Then, from next year, the device – designed to bridge the digital divide and boost India's economy – will become available to students in higher education.
Sibal said: "The solutions for tomorrow will emerge from India. We have reached a stage that today, the motherboard, its chip, the processing, connectivity, all of them cumulatively cost around $35 [£23], including memory, display, everything."
Past low-cost technologies produced by the country include the £1,450 Tata Nano car and a mobile phone costing less than £11. The iPad retails at about £429 in the UK – 18 times the cost of the Indian laptop."

China Leads U.S. in High Speed Rail

"China's been kicking America's butt for a while now. That much is no secret.
They've got money. They've got development. They probably make half the products sitting in the room you're in right now.
Hell, they even got the Olympics — although Michael Phelps helped steal their thunder.
Sure, they're an oppressive, polluted, Communist nation with severe population problems...
But that doesn't change the fact that when it comes to forward thinking, China has a way of making America look like a bunch of mountain dwellers from Deliverance."

Hi Devin!
Absolutely downfall by design, including the extinction event in the gulf. Rather than caretakers, successive administrations have been mobs of looters culminating in the 24 trillion theft we just witnessed.
