I usually don't bother on their site ... but this one is interesting!

 

Worstall on Wednesday The lads over at Business Insider seem to be getting a little over-excited about Xiaomi's latest fund raising exercise, claiming in their headline that it's the Apple of China. Well, no, not really, Apple is the Apple of China. Making cute kit and selling it in volume isn't the definitive point about Apple itself so a company that does merely that doesn't an Apple make.

    Good read. Interesting indeed. Maybe some of the readers here will stop mocking the companies that don't do things Apple's way, because it's virtually impossible to do. Hardware/software combo has failed more than has succeeded. Quality build hasn't helped HTC. The fact is that nobody is going to duplicate what Apple has done. Some might get close but will run out of gas like Samsung has.
