    Huawei is not universally loved in China. Its high pressure company culture is despised by many. And Mi fan boys hate Huawei too. Earlier it was mocked by chinese netizens for having a Muslim prayer built in function in their phones.

    Yes hard to believe - it's an old quote from Ballmer. Found this reference - Netherlands.

    https://www.zdnet.com/article/micros...china-revenue/

    Ballmer said that Microsoft will get 5 percent of the revenue from China compared to the U.S. even though both countries sell about the same amount of PCs.
    Ballmer reportedly said that its revenue per PC sold in China is a sixth of what it gets in India. Chinese revenue for Microsoft is less than what it pulls in from the Netherlands.

    Thanks for the context. I’m sure many of us here didn’t know this is the case (myself included).

    Show love to China by forking out US$125000 for a fookin bag.

    Global Times, a nationalist state-backed tabloid, on Thursday accused Amazon of challenging China’s sovereignty by allowing the sale of T-shirts with slogans like “Free Hong Kong Democracy Now”, written in English, or “Go Hong Kong”, written in traditional Chinese characters.
