Lenovo does a Gearbest

Cryptocurrency has taught me to love math and at the same time be baffled by it.

Cryptocurrency lesson 0: Altcoins and Bitcoin are not the same thing.

I hear of them wanting to control the review or them just taking it and putting their name on it.

Lenovo is already on my do not buy list for a long time:

This all is not a issue with the linux i'm using but i still can't trust a company that does stuff like this.

Indeed. Why buy from this crappy company? It started with Chinese government's money in HK, as a channel to smuggle computers to China to circumvent western technology sanction.

It went big, powerful enough to vote on its feet, and it betrayed Chinese government. It immigrated to the US, and now it's a pure "Asian-American" company that sells more expensive in China than anywhere else, and declares tax in US.

It recalled less faulty shit in China than in US, and it doesn't honor its global warranty in only China and N. Korea.

It lists Taiwan as a country, and it runs price drop campaign in Japan on China's Japan invasion memorial day.

So fuck Lenovo. Though Lenovo is still prevalent in Chinese government, even Chinese government is shifting to Dell and HP. As least they are 100% American companies, not "banana" companies.

The best way to stay away from backdoors is to make yourself less useful to the big eyes.

If you buy a $10k Cisco, chances are you will be tagged as a POI.

If you buy a $20 TPLink, the cost of looking into your traffic will certainly not be worth it.

Anyway nowadays computer hardware are just too over powered, and chances are whatever cheap consumer grade gear, if used properly, can take the load of what used to cost $10k can do.

Lenovo makes nice computers... But smartphones? Maybe just no.
