Re: missing the point
China is nowadays being as capitalist as any other country around.
It's naive to think the US or the UK don't control their companies/population. Maybe they keep us dumb with the two parties movie and Fox news, but definitely there isn't any more "freedom" left.
Politicians aside. Nobody has been able to throw some tech data about how "unsafe" their products are. When you are working with chips, be it Motorola, Intel, or whatnot, you are working with a black box unless you have the full documentation/specification set available.
Finally, if you were a big company manager, chances are you'd do your industrial spying by bribing insiders, hell cheaper.
