for professors, just publishing their books in current format is not enough anymore. digital device can provide better interactive communication than traditional paper medium. further paper based textbook can be easily printer-copied and piracy is bad. so it would make sense that textbook publishers want to move away from paper. in this effort, lots of ppl are needed to publish a textbook, so more ppl would be hired as well. of course, ppl in traditional paper printing...
steve's biggest marketing pitch is to tell how good a people is and this individual also uses mac products. i don't get it that it is so simple idea that no many get it. sorry if i am saying this harsh: apple never tried to please everyone, but successful ones.
and barry bond and mark mcgwire who risked their lives to try magic in order to push humanity to extremity.
what you mentioned are the points. do you think chinese don't like the bigger and spacious environment like us here? but the question is whether they can afford it! can you tell me how you can maintain your civility in a crowded/packed train where you can not even move? it is not just for a hour of torture, but tens of hours. if you don't want it, you don't even have choice to choose in certain special time, such as chinese new year. of course they have choice not to go...
give me a break. 25 years ago in 1987, were you in china, you would be treated like a rare specie there. were you there at the time, you would have special treat even though you were a college foreign student. you don't share much with locals as you lived in a sheltered glass. yes, you would venture out to see local chinese way of life occasionally. yes you would deal some hassles here or there. but do you understand that those local chinese would have to deal those...
if you keep trying to "improve" your image on others mind, you would never be yourselves. you are who you are. if ppl don't like you, no matter how hard you try and how good you are, they just simply don't like you. your friend does not like shanghai after living there 5 years, while my friend does not like japan because he thinks it the raciest place on this planet. it is ok since it is their personal opinions and hopefully their experiences do not represent majority....
c'mon, man, in other places maybe people treat you as rare species, but in beijing, you were just treated like a normal human being. you should not feel very bad about it, should you?
holy shit, what are you? you think you are michael j. fox to time travel? were you in china 25 years ago? how the hell do you know things at that time? are you smoking joint? if you were in china 25 years ago, unless you are one of those pathetic low life chinese as you mentioned, you would not have a chance to deal those hassles as being a local chinese.
every once a month, i went to a local book fair to buy some used books for cheap. for sure those printed objects are not favors to many ppl anymore, but their residual values lie on reselling them high by buying it cheap first. most young are late while early birds are most seniors. specially in the cold winter, it is a pity to see those seniors standing outside for the ticket to get in first. well, everything is pretty civil until the book fair door is open. you wanna me...
for christ's sake, enlighten me how an altercation in waiting to buy an iPhone will change a culture?
