"China shoves Beidou intro tractors, trucks and buses" - another unwarranted sensational headline
In the West so many forms of transport are equipped with GPS, including trains. ATMs use GPS for timing, as do TV networks.
There is little 'shoving' involved, at least no more than in other countries. Besides the GPS coverage is a little rough in parts of China and Tibet. Why not promote your own system?
Why are Western countries so possessive about technology? Can't have nuclear, but some can, Can't have this technology but some can. North Korea can't use rockets but everyone else can. These people forget that China makes most of the hardware these days and they are pretty hot on software, too.
We should acknowledge it was the generosity of the USA who gave us GPS and the wisdom of President Clinton who ordered the encryption removed. Just think how many companies, not withstanding what Romney claimed, have gained financially from this. In the UK, the USA and world-wide.
I have been fortunate to have visited China many times, both during Chairman Mao's not so successful rule until today and the progress is absolutely staggering and makes the West look less than successful.
We should welcome China's advances. A home designed and built system, launched with their own rockets - some things of which the UK is incapable of doing notwithstanding it's technological edge.
And Cameron wants to leave the EU. Get your immigration applications in now.
