    Default Chinese counterfeit chips causing military hardware crashes

    Weve 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.

    Its no longer about them counterfeiting Windows Vista CDs 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. Its 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 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.

    I wonder if Mojo is proud of his people now. I wonder if the Chinese Government knew about it.

    I'm sure I'm going to be proud when I can clone or counterfeit
    advance military computer chips

    which I doubt not everyone can or able to do.

    I wonder if I'm the only one that played Command and Conquor Generals wondering why the US had technological superiority over China and suffered no economic meltdown due to China going to war with them.

    Seriously, when in history has a country ever given their military equipment's manufacturing rights to a country that's only vaguely allied?

    That's the opportunity cost of getting cheaper chips. You lose quality when you buy cheap. and it is china, i'm surprised this hasn't happened sooner since China is famous for low quality products.(i.e MOJOJUNKIES..... LOL LOL LOL LOL)
