China Punks 2: No snappy titlePosted: January 3, 2012
Note: This originally appeared on Artman Talks as the podcast with No Name #2
We get a better internet connection (kind of) and stay a little bit more on focused when it comes to topics.
We talk about some of the biggest news (no not Euro nonsense) to hit this side of the world: the death of Kim Jong-il. A crazy guy, who apparently wanted to be a movie director, left behind a son only recently declared heir to rule the country. What’s next for North Korea and China? We’re not sure, but we do discuss some of the possibilities.Also, we talk a bit about the property market here in China. As China slows down, what’s going to happen to real estate and the economy as a whole? There’s lots of different opinions, but it probably won’t be as bad as some people are saying (especially since those people have money riding on a China fail.)
The big tech news of the past week was the wide(r) release of Xiaomi. Not only
can you now could you order a phone on their site, but you can also buy it at a China Unicom store near you! But, like many things, just because it has gotten a lot of hype, doesn’t mean its the only homemade smartphone in China.
And, to end on a light note, we talk about how much I’d like to kick the dogs in my neighborhood (and their owners, to be honest.)
Listen here and tell all your friends!
