A good reporting of a well-known story. Next time you watch an ad for the iPhone, check and see if you find a mandarin version of the NY Times displayed on the screen. It will show a picture of Chien-Ming Wang. In Mandarin, the newspaper says, “Pride of Taiwan”. Guys like me won’t notice it, but native Mandarin readers will recognize it. See, thing is, the iPhone is the pride of Taiwan, that’s the point of the ad. The manufacturers on this island, which is the size of Maryland but has the population of Texas, have been miniaturizing devices for decades now.
