How Did China Vs US Technology Develop?
It is a common question of the competition between China vs US Technology. The answer to this can be in the form of various technologies. There are a few products that are made by the Chinese and marketed by the Americans. Some of these include, AC, Boilers, Computers, DVD players, Humming birds, Infrared Thermostats, MRI machines, Microwaves, Personal Digital Assistants, Plasma TV and more. Of course, some of this technology was invented in the US but was stolen by the Chinese.
So, what does all this technology have to offer? Well, for one, it seems like the Chinese would be dominating the market on the whole of this. But that isn’t the case. While there are many products that were copied from the US, many products are actually made by the Chinese and marketed by the Americans.
Now, the US is leading the world with a lot of inventions. We are first world economically, and we are first world in so many fields. That being said, let’s not forget the other part of the equation. China is second to us when it comes to manufacturing air conditioners.
If you look at the latest trends, the Chinese are leading the world again on the production front. They are now producing AC and refrigerators that have AC filters. They are also making very efficient coolers that are both cool and energy efficient. They have also been making very efficient televisions that use less power and are considered the most environmentally friendly televisions on the market today. Cool, huh?
Now let’s look at the US vs China competition. What are some of the differences that can be found between the two in terms of their overall product line? Well, for one thing, China has pretty much cornered the market on the cooling market, especially in Asia and some parts of Latin America. The Chinese are now home to many major manufacturing companies that are now bringing their A/C into the home markets of the world.
Now we have the US. We have two big manufacturers, who are fairly recent entrants in the cool-air-conditioning market. One of them, I hear every day on the news is coming out with new designs, and cool new products. But, that’s not all. Big, brand name companies like LG, Samsung, Whirlpool, and Intermatic are all starting to get involved in the market as well.
Now, there are some good news and bad news with the US vs China battle. For one, it looks like the Chinese are winning the air conditioning market. While it may be true, and it’s only a small number of markets, but there is no denying the fact that they are dominating the entire space. So, that makes things interesting, right?
However, it is also true, that those big brand names, those behemoths, really made their money over the last five or ten years, and they have a lot of patents that they hold that protect their trademark names. That opens up a whole new can of worms. Because now, if any company decides to make a cheaper version of the air conditioner that you already own, they are going to get taken to court because they will be infringing on one of their patents. While that doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to buy a cheap air conditioner, you need to be very careful that you don’t get ripped off.
It’s actually funny when you think about it. Look at all the patent filings that go on in the technology space. Apple holds hundreds of patents for their products. Microsoft has dozens. They’re huge.
When was the last time you bought a computer that was less than ten dollars? It hasn’t been too long. In fact, the price of computers has decreased so much that they’re affordable for just about anyone. There are many versions out there that don’t run as hot as the ones that you paid a few hundred dollars for. What’s the difference?
We love China. I mean, we love everything about China. They have great products, cheap electronics, and they do everything with a sense of humor. But this kind of thing isn’t a good thing. And it definitely hasn’t helped that the Chinese government is laughing in our faces and saying, “are you ready to buy some computers?”
