We think we’re designing and buying the “latest” “cool” electronics back home, but what they don’t tell you is that Asia really is keeping all the good stuff for themselves. Cell phones that record and play full motion video while also getting TV and high speed internet access are common, not rare like they are back home. Full 1080 HD was everywhere along with the slickest widescreen plasma and LCD tvs. Stores were stocked with Blu Ray burners. There was an entire aisle in one of the electronics stores devoted just to mice, in all different colors, shapes, and sizes. Laptops and desktops came in design and color combinations we never see. There are whole genres of video games you’ll ever know about. Nintendo Wiis were plentiful. And Compact Flash cards were available with 8 gbs of storage, which even Bryan might have a hard time filling with his camera in a single day.
