HTC exodus, Chinese DIY wonders, and a Cannes victory

29 May

HTC has been trying to make a big comeback with the One, but it’s gotten into more trouble with the exodus of several executives. Not one, not two, but at least five HTC execs have left in the last few months. It’s the latest in a series of setbacks for HTC which in 2011 used to be one of the hippest Android phonemakers. Now, it’s been long left in the dust by Samsung and perhaps even by Nokia in Windows phones.

This is just crazy. Here’s a long list of DIY inventions by ingenious Chinese, including a homemade submarine, plane, robots, and even a living pod that can presumably house a family when armageddon occurs. The best one, the homemade cannon made by a farmer to defend his fields against rapacious property developers.

Finally, it’s good to see a Chinese director win a top prize at the Cannes Film Fest, along with other Asian talents as well.
