China Sucks. The U.S. is getting screwed by China when it comes to free trade.

How about you stop buying Chinese products. That is everything that is made and produce in China.

Anyone will have to be the top 0.01% to afford that lifestyle.

You know whats funny.... I could of swore I read somewhere that the Nexus was built here in the good ole USA, of domestic and foreign parts of course but it is made here in the USA. So we export a pretty good device to China they say NO, but we have Walgreens and Walmarts and every store in between that sells a made in China tablet device....

I know we as America can't just cut China off, hell China owns the United States. Most people don't know but China purchased most of America's Debt for interest payments. So yea I can see how China can say no.

On the flip side, China's new premier used to work in the midwest and has lots of friends there still, maybe things will change.

Nah.

That is just the Nexus Q? (that sphere like device) I think. There is a write up somewhere. Though how many Nexus Q did Google sell? Is it even for sales?

They would have sold many more here there and everywhere (except China) if they just allowed external SD card storage... I'd have one right now if they weren't SD card haters. I have a ton of content that won't cut it on a primarily cloud centric device. At least not without a mobile connection... I could accept a 32GB version but all I have now are rumors..

Yeah but they have products that go up to 64GB internal, which would be great on the Nexus 7.

I like the backup capabilities of an SD card as well. As I said before, if it doesn't have a mobile connection I'd like that external storage option as well.

I like as many contengency options as possible. Paranoid? nah, prepared? Yup.
