The largest factory in the world

Now that China is nearing its goal—in about 15 years China’s middle class will outnumber the entire population of the United States—it has an excess of steel and is exporting that excess at lower prices to other countries creating stiff competition across the globe. For instance, the ISSB reports that from 2013 to 2014 China increased its steel exports by 53% from 57.9 million to 88.6 million tonnes while the United States saw a 5% drop in its steel exports.

With the United States so obsessed to be #1 in everything—except for reducing the poverty rate—its capitalist oligarchs must be obsessively stressed out and worried that they are going to lose their Imperial crowns.


Social TV

Social TV extends the experience of content with social networks across a new constellation of devices and platforms. Discover how entrepreneurs are accelerating the migration of TV from an isolated, a social single-screen experience to an increasingly interactive and social consumer experience while increasing values for advertisers.

Internet and mobile applications have made the world more social than ever before and TV is going through the same social transformation. The 2011 Superbowl is also known as the “Social Bowl”. Estimate is that two-thirds of the Superbowl viewers between 18~35 used a smart-phone to interact with the Ads.

While some say Connected-TV is the way of the future, others claim it’s destined for slow adoption. Connected-TV alone will not achieve the social experience consumers are seeking. Social TV seamlessly integrates content and social activities across TV, web, and mobile devices.

Come see how entrepreneurs are creating new breeds of applications offering creative ways to enhance user experience and attempting to monetize in the world of television entertainment.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

iPhone’s Father

Click to know more about his story: Steve Jobs’ life

Steve Jobs was already gravely ill with cancer when he asked author Walter Isaacson to write his biography. Jobs told Isaacson to write a honest book – about his failings and his strengths. Steve Kroft reports.

After seeing the story of Steve Jobs i must say i feel a new sense of deep respect for him now that i did not before. I think the part about his child life really hit me. It’s a tough thing to grow up feeling unwanted by your mother & father. Now i wish i had more time with him when he was alive if only to learn more about the business of computers and phones. What a great lost almost as great as the lost of my sister Billie!  Trimax44  said.
