Bizarre addition to Silicon 60
EE Times' Silicon 60 version 8.0 (link) contains a rather odd addition, Beijing's BLX. This firm is typical of the state-linked firms that feed at the government trough. Moreover, BLX has never put out competitive products in the open marketplace. Instead, this firm has relied on selling its inferior products to other state-linked firms, which in turn rely on selling their computers to the Chinese state. I hope for version 9.0 EE Times removes BLX and puts in its place any one of a number of worthy design start-ups from China.
