Simon Burns: Cool Stuff, Made in Taiwan

From Wired Magazine:

The manufacturing relationship with China is very close. The aluminum in Shuttle’s PCs comes from Taiwan, which is shipped to China for machining and then back to Taiwan for assembly.

Those tight business relationships are beneficial to both countries, but they overlook a potentially disastrous complication: China and Taiwan are technically at war. Not a shooting war, admittedly, but a civil war in which fighting gradually petered out decades ago without a peace treaty being signed.
