China’s economy finally beats the USA, SNK has an awesome game for you and a couple new Moto 360 commercials have been released. What a night!
China is a force to be reckoned with. They know how to play their cards, and that is something a lot of other countries, markets and industries tend to ignore. Today China really sets itself apart with the latest research, which crowns the country as the most powerful economy in the world, with a GDP of $17.6 trillion, surpassing the USA by some $200 billion.
This news is not exactly about tech, but it’s indirectly related. China’s manufacturing power is part of what makes it so strong. We have seen China do wonders with companies like Xiaomi and OnePlus. Could it be that China’s manufacturers will become the next top players (just like it happened with their economy?).
Opinion: China is leading the way in many forms. Can we stop giving it a bad reputation and look at what the country can accomplish?
You guys remember King of Fighters, right? It was one of the most important games in my childhood, so I could not help but share the news as soon as I saw this story going around. SNK has released The King of Fighters-A 2012 on the Google Play Store. Best part about it? It’s free!
For those who don’t know, this is a Japanese style fighting game. It’s a bit hard to explain past that point. There are complex stories behind each character. Really worth it, so go get it from the Google Play Store.
Opinion: I know what I will be wasting my time on tonight, after work. If this is not your cup of tea, though, we do have another entertaining story for you.
Liking the Moto 360? Motorola is giving the round smart watch a lot of hype, and the latest commercial is all about highlighting how the evolution of watches is important. These are not just watches, they take your experience to the next level, while looking great. At least that is the message they want to portray.
Opinion: I think the commercials are a bit too much. I wish more features and capabilities were demonstrated. They honestly seem more like a tech catwalk. It’s also interesting that they are targeting women with the second video. I mean, our very own Nicole thinks it’s definitely not made for women.
