Chinese counterfeit chips causing military hardware crashes
Weíve all heard about all the problems the Chinese have had with now it seems another sector of the market is having problems with all these Chinese counterfeiters.
Itís no longer about them counterfeiting Windows Vista CDís and selling them in stores or about putting chemicals to inflate the protein count in their milk, they seem to have reached a whole new level, now cloning computer chips and high end military equipment. Itís diffidently reached whole new levels with them making older chips look like new and then selling them as the real deal.
I wonder if all of this might hurt China in the long run, there seems to be too many knockoffs and they all seem to originate from China Ö I wonder if some kind of backlash might be brewing waiting to explode sometime in the future. Only so many lives can be lost before people get fed up.
