The largest economy moves towards tapering, and the second largest has to pump in more. Strange design – the wheels of the global economy.

Well this is a number that we had always wanted to know – given China’s preference for low cost devices and the smartphone / tablet boom overall. We spotted this stat today, that there are more than 270 million active android users in China. (Source)

This number has huge implications, particularly for Android developers. We would try to spot some stats around that, but our bet is this is not a huge ‘we pay for apps’ crowd.

It definitely makes sense to have a ‘China strategy’ – we had spotted a few stats earlier that proves this point – that China is way different from the rest of the world- we spotted this stat today, that no less than 2 million people are employed by the Chinese Government to ‘monitor’ web activity, including microblogs (Source)

One thing we know – even if you have 100 million messages posted per day (The most popular microblogging site Sina Weibo, launched in 2010, now has more than 500 million registered users with 100 million messages posted daily) – with the right training and tools, with 2 million people, monitoring manually suddenly looks feasible. Wow.
