  • China delivers

    About 3 years ago, when the economic conflict against China started in earnest (remember Trump’s Trade War), quite rightly chips were defined as a critical issue.  I made a prediction at the time that what we probably could expect from China is some kind of leapfrog in technology.  This kind of leapfrog is easily understood…
