I'm surprised that more folks haven't been buzzing about the recent events in Taiwan. With the election of the independence-minded Chen Shui-bian, Taiwanese voters gave China the bird in the worst way. The Chinese goverment, for their part, has gone into full saber-rattling mode, threatening an invasion, neutron bombs, and worseincluding lobbing nukes at the U.S. if Uncle Sam sticks his nose into affairs.
In any sane world, this kind of thing would have people seriously worried. So much of what we report on here at TR is tied to Taiwan, and an invasion or takeover of any kind by China would be devastating to the PC hardware realm, as it would be to lots and lots of people involved in it. Anybody from Taiwan care to comment?
