China devices

David: It would be intersting for you to compare the two devices. I've bought stuff cheap in China, only later to realize I pretty much got what I paid for, but I realize there are always exceptions. Would love to see a teardown!

Great questions!

I love the picture of the Chromecast-like gadget bought a year ago in a China electronics market!

These are wonderful questions, David, and I'd love to hear thoughtful responses to them.

I'd add one more--when will China get that its missing ingredient is some great software?

Innovation in China

Chromecast is not the first innovation I have seen from China. I am sure it will not be the last. Compared to 20/ 30 years ago, development platforms are so easy to acquire and the cost is relatively low. College graduates from China might just be making a fun toy w/o knowing they have created something unique and special. However, some products need to be improved in terms of form factor and packaging. More importantly, the innovators will need a good marketing team to help out putting the product into market.
