China Releases Propaganda About The Benefits Of Smog

china-smog-benefits.jpg Since, hi– it’s worth a shot, the Chinese government-run media recently released an article mentioning five “surprising advantages” of the smog covering its largest cities. Mmmm, air so excellent you can taste it. Drumroll sad trombone please:

1. It links the Chinese people. 2. It makes China more equal. 3. It raises resident awareness of the cost of China’s financial development. 4. It makes people funnier. 5. It makes individuals more well-informed (of things like meteorology)

LOL, your cough makes you funnier. However seriously, any person who’s ever lived in a smoggy city knows there’s truly only one real benefit of air pollution: the sunsets. I reside in Los Angeles and a great deal of times the sky is like, LASER RED prior to the sun decreases. So red often I wonder if it’s really on fire, and it could be. Thanks to E V I L A R E S, who’s so evil if he wants his superpower was to breathe smog.

China Mobile Kicks Off iPhone Preorders Thursday, 4G Network Booting Up Dec. 18

People queue up to buy the new iPad during its China launch at the Apple store in Shanghai

Last week, it came out that China Mobile and Apple had finally penned a deal to bring the iPhone to China’s largest mobile network, and now the Wall Street Journal reports that iPhone 5s pre-order sales begin this Thursday, with China Mobile’s new 4G services going live on Dec. 18.

The pre-order listing and advertisement for 4G and the iPhone 5s is already live on China Mobile’s official website, and China Mobile confirmed to the WSJ that it will indeed kick off pre-order sales officially starting this Thursday. There will also be an event on Dec. 18 at which the carrier intends to reveal its 4G network to global partners in Guangzhou, which should cover Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Tianjian, Shenzen and Nanjing before 2013 is out, with plans to expand coverage further in the new year. This would be the official launch building off of its existing 4G trial distribution.

China Mobile represents a massive potential new customer base for Apple, as it has a ridiculous 759.3 million users on its network. Only 23 percent of those are on 3G, however, according to Forbes, and a smaller percentage will be eager to upgrade to 4G and invest in an iPhone. Still, analyst predictions for how many additional iPhones Apple could sell in 2014 with China Mobile on board seem to begin at 10 million, and extend up to nearly 40 million. Either way, it’s nothing but upside growth for Cupertino, from a client pool that’s increasingly important to its bottom line.

China Mobile has been losing subscribers to its rivals China Unicom and China Telecom since they both offer the iPhone, and have for years, in a scenario that’s similar to what happened in the U.S. when AT&T had iPhone exclusivity for multiple years before it came to other U.S. carriers. Both it and Apple should benefit considerably from this new partnership, and for Apple in particular, this should help stave off critics who say it’s running out of market in general.

Biden criticizes China for crackdown on American journalists

Vice President Joe Biden today publicly criticized the Chinese government for its restrictions on foreign journalists, saying that the US has “profound disagreements” on Beijing’s treatment of American media outlets. As the New York Times reports, Biden made the comments during a speech in Beijing, and privately discussed the matter with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The Chinese government has cracked down on foreign media as of late, refusing to issue residence visas to some several correspondents from Bloomberg and the Times after each publication ran stories on the wealth of leading Chinese officials. Last month, employees at Bloomberg alleged that the news service decided to not publish a report on the political connections of…

China will send a rabbit rover to the moon this weekend

China may soon become the world’s third country to land an object on the surface of the Moon — and a bunny will be along for the ride. On Tuesday, the country voted to name its new lunar rover Yutu, or Jade Rabbit, out of 190,000 proposed ideas. The choice of name shouldn’t be a surprise. On Sunday, December 1st at 17:30 GMT, the superpower will send the rover to the moon on board its Chang’e-3 lunar probe. In Chinese folklore, Chang’e was a goddess who accidentally swallowed an immortality pill and flew to the Moon, with only a rabbit to keep her company.
