It is interesting to see what the Chinese where to place investments in terms of technology.
I belong to a Mobile Technology group online, and today, the following advertisement was posted:
Looking for possible acquisition targets in US & Europe
A large Chinese investment company is looking for possible acquisition targets in mobile applications, games, internet, eCommerce, mobile & online advertising, 3D technology, animation, comics and traditional media such as newspaper and magazines. The company must be profitable. Targets size between $10m - $100m.
What I find interesting is that they want to invest in newspapers and magazines as well as technology media -- these are instruments for spheres of influence. This has the potential of being frightening to Americans, considering that the Chinese state probably owns this investment company.
