What Innovation Looks alike in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on September 24, 2014


Funny comment here about what innovation is like in China. The fact is that the communist party allows a foreign tech i to China and then it is cloned. The foreign companies is then kicked out of China or marginalized by Chinese policies.

Here are examples:

Weibo < Twitter (which is why China banned it)
WeChat < Whatsapp
Alibaba < Amazon
Baidu < Google (also banned by china)
Tianhe-2 oh please…………

Beidou < GPS, Glonass….
Shenzou < Soyuz (in fact it’s a clone copy of the Soyuz)
Huawei < Cisco
