3G.cn: a New Force in the Chinese 3G market

BEIJING, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- The year 2009 was the first year that 3G operation licenses were issued by Chinese authorities. According to the latest statistics, China's mobile Internet users have reached 170 million. What's most surprising is not the number of users, but rather the startling rate of growth. The number of Chinese users is close to that of South Korea and Japan, where 3G technology has been in existence for over a decade.

3G.cn is a site just like Facebook or Twitter: the number of users increases at an astonishing speed. Its immeasurable market value has become a magnet, continuously attracting venture capital companies like IDG. 3G.cn has been a leader in China's mobile Internet industry ever since it was launched.

"The core of the Internet is not the computer, but the mobile phone, and the largest mobile Internet market is none other than China," stated Yuqiang Deng, CEO of 3g.cn.

A Dump Truck for the 21st Century. For more than a century "tipper" trucks—so called for their ability to lift their cargo beds at an angle that allows their contents to empty without manual intervention—have helped construction crews haul heavy building materials, including tons of asphalt and gravel at a time. The typical model of tipper seen on construction sites worldwide is the dump truck, which uses a hydraulic lift to raise one end of its cargo bed high into the air while its contents slide out of the back or to the side.

Chinese transportation designer Haishan Deng created a series of concept drawings depicting what Meiller's new "super tipper" truck in action that won him a 2007 red dot award for product design from Germany's Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen, an institution formed in 1955 to promote industrial design aesthetics. Inspired by the movement of quadruped animals, Deng designed the super tipper with independent suspension arms that absorb uneven terrain better than conventional dump trucks.

New Marriage Law Sparks Concern. Deng Ying, who lives in Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong Province, got married 10 years ago. Several years later, she discovered that her businessman husband was supporting a mistress. He lived secretly with the young woman, who worked in a barbershop. Deng kept quiet at first, until one day her husband suggested letting the woman live at their home. Finding this suggestion unbearable, Deng chose divorce. Regarding her decision, her husband said that not only would he not let her get a single cent, but would take on a huge debt that she would have to share in paying after their divorce. Faced with such a rude and unreasonable husband, Deng shuttled between the court and the local women’s federation for help. But recently she slowed her pace in seeking a divorce because she saw the Draft Revision of the Marriage Law published in the newspapers. According to the draft, the partner who is without fault will enjoy the right to compensation. Deng decided not to take divorce action until the law goes into effect. by Lu Pipi Beijing Review March 2001

A motor carriage driver waits near his vehicle before a billboard of former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping in Golmud city, Qinghai province in western China on Friday, July 20, 2001. China is seeking to develop its western region, home to many of its ethnic and religious minorities, some of whom have traditionally resented heavy-handed Chinese rule. (AP Photo/Ng Han Guan)The Olympic Leap. That long nightmare began to wane with the rise to power of Deng Xiaoping. Astute and pragmatic, Deng understood that Mao's peculiar statecraft doomed China to further decades of servitude and lassitude as a teetering third-world economy with more than a billion mouths to feed. So he threw out the Little Red Book and replaced it with the Axiom of the Black and White Cat: "It doesn't matter," he would say, justifying the occasional obvious deviation from Communist economic orthodoxy, "if the cat is black or white, as long as it catches the mouse." It will take the mature fullness of history for the late Deng (relentlessly clear-eyed and as practical as possible under the lumbering system) to be appreciated as the maker of modern China and for Mao to be seen as its fierce liberator.

Pop tunes excite Chinese mainlanders. When China started to reform and open to the outside world, the fresh sounds of Taiwan singer Deng Lijun (Teresa Teng) captivated many Chinese mainlanders overnight. Though she was but a love song singer, Deng showed most would-be mainland pop musicians what pop music was. Deng's songs were what young people were looking for after hearing too many revolutionary songs: easily hummed melodies, romantic lyrics and a rather bourgeois attitude. by Mu Qian China Daily 10/07/1999

John TengMAC warns against China dangers. Investment in China can be an attractive proposition for Taiwanese businessmen, but they should be aware of the hidden dangers in doing business in China, said John Teng (鄧振中), vice chairman of the Mainland Affairs Council of the Executive Yuan in an interview Tuesday. In an interview with the Central News Agency, Teng said that China is an important part of the world economy and one which cannot be ignored. He said that Taiwanese businessmen's activities in China are bound to increase. "Currently there are no fewer than 50,000 Taiwanese companies operating on the mainland and they have recruited some 500,000 staff members, mostly of the executive levels, from Taiwan," Teng said. "As a matter of fact, the figures are very likely underestimated, because no official records are kept," he added. Taipei Times June 28, 2001

Chinese Scientists Breed New Variety of Tomato. The new variety of tomato is "an unusual leap forward" from previous species in terms of quality and quantity, according to the scientists with the Heilongjiang Academy of Agricultural Sciences (HAAS), in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province.

Deng Liping, a researcher with HAAS who heads the experiment, said that scientists analyzed the tomatoes grown from the seeds and found changes in a main enzyme which carries the genetic character.

Natural sound music to the ears. Deng Erbo, dean of the Composing Department, recalled an incident that helped him decide to set the policy. In this April, the school held entrance exams for children who love music. They were asked to write an article about the cuckoo.

They often encourage their students to get in touch with the animals on campus. by Shen Jialu China Daily 06/29/2001

They can only try to follow international norms. China Youth Daily, July 1999
