So honestly I’ve gotten a little bored of all the scandals, internet celebrities, political issues, censorship stories, protests, riots, etc. that China blogs usually cover so I’ve recently tried to post things that are a bit more fun and quirky – for example, the Chinese version of a Danish bacon commercial, the magic tricks by Liu Qian, the strangely totalitarian dating rules, etc. Of course, this does not affect Key, Annie, or Nancy – they will continue to do whatever they want. Also, I trust that most of the other China blogs will cover the usual (i.e. the new chinadivide, Shanghaiist, China Media Project, China Digital Times, Danwei, Global Voices, ESWN, etc.) and I hope that they continue to do so.
Also, since I peruse a lot of other blogs, I want to bring in things from some English blogs that the typical "China blog readers" might not read. Of course, these will still be relevant to China.
This is from Engadget:
In a classic case of "why didn’t we think of this first," Chinese design student Gonglue Jiang has shown us a new way for overcoming the limitations imposed by the scarcity of USB ports on some computers. Instead of forcing you to constantly hot swap devices into that one port, Gonglue’s Infinite USB plugs keep all your cables connected, thereby facilitating those smartphone syncs, spy camera recharges, and — for the ultimate irony — maybe even a USB hub.
