What Will The Future iWorld Be Like With iPhone 44G? (Video)

Every year in June for the last few years Apple has released a new iPhone like clock work at WWDC. Although it seems they may not be this year I still have confidence that in 40 years, the iPhone 44 will be released. Charlie Custer, resident geek at The World of Chinese, and ChinaGeeks blogger, found an amazing video of what the iWorld will be like at that point in the future. You’ll be shocked at how awesome/awful the future seems.

Amazon Android App Store Goes Live, Works In China…For Now

Last week Amazon’s Android App Store finally went live, and it was about time too. All of us Android users in China have basically been stuck using Google’s (unfortunately crappy) Android Market. The problem with the Android Market isn’t the number of apps, or it’s ease of use. It’s problem is the fact that Android users here are not allowed purchase any of the paid apps available.

IMAX Opening Over 100 New Cinemas In China Over The Next Few Years

For those of us living in China, I’ve got some great news. It seems that IMAX popularity has grown so much that deals have been made to build over 177 new IMAX cinemas throughout China over the next few years. This spike in popularity of IMAX in China was largely due to the release of Avatar last summer, which was HUGELY successful with over US$ 207 Million in sales. The craziest thing about this is that there were only 445 IMAX theaters last year, meaning that nearly 1/3 of all IMAX theaters will eventually be located in China.

BMW Starts Mini-E Electric Car Test Program in China

So the other day I came home and while parking my scooter I found that a new car sat parked in a parking spot nearby. The car was the Mini-E, BMW’s all-electric zero emissions vehicle. They’ve been producing them since 2009, but only around 600 people have had the privilege of testing out what is possibly the future of cars. It seems that the test vehicles have now many their way to Beijing as part of a 5 month road test.

Not sure how we let this one slip by, but this Chinese DIY (do-it-yourself) genius has designed his own iPod nano watch using a knockoff iPod nano and pure ingenuity. I know this isn’t exactly a unique design, but you gotta give the guy credit. Who ever said the Chinese aren’t original?
