A Giant Desktop in Haikou

A post related to China's Great Firewall and VPNs I had hoped to finish today still needs some more work and should makes its appearance tomorrow. In the meantime, here is a photo of some other technology in China.

I don't think the giant screen at the shopping mall was being put to use as intended, but seeing a giant Windows desktop made ponder some possible personal uses for a computer monitor of that size.

More later.


  1. Haven't been in there in a while - do the piano stairs still play music when you walk on them?

    1. They were working the first time I was there. I noticed that the notes sounded in the same order even if you decided to change directions. My next visit, they had the steps roped off.
