Why is China using Cyber Warfare as an Instrument of Peacetime State Policy ?

China has repeatedly cropped up in the news for cyberattacks on various governments as well as large multinational companies.While the Chinese government has denied responsibility for these cyberattacks,the evidence continues to grow as large reputed organization have blamed hacking on Chinese origin IP addresses.Note South Korea,USA and India have blamed China for cyberattacks on government computers.Growing cyberwarfare from China has made India start a cyberattack centre of its own reflecting the serious growing nature of these attacks.The recent Stuxnet virus attack on nuclear plants of Iran has been also been blamed on a Chinese attack on India gone wrong.Note cyberattacks are not considered of very serious nature in today's geopolitics and has deniability.This has probably made China to continue with cyberwarfare on countries considered hostile to its interests.

Yet Again China under Suspicion for CyberAttack on USA

Note the Chinese government has completely denied any wrongdoing and it is almost impossible to prove the allegations.However the Chinese Origin IP Addresses point to the Chinese origin of the attacks.One of the main reasons for Google leaving China was the cyberattack on Google computers.China has become the 2nd largest economy in the world and a major world power.With growing power comes more responsibility though can't think of any global power taking much of that ( USA till recently believed in preemptive attacks on weaker countries).Growing cyberattacks will lead to increased security and restriction of the Internet which is to the detriment of all countries.Note the development of Networking and Communication Technologies has been a key element of the growing prosperity the world over.

Could $100 Android Phones from Local Indian Makers threaten Global Giants like LG,Samsung,Nokia in US and Europe as well While the quality of local Indian made phones are still quite poor with lots of complaints,these companies have recently got a lot of funding and support.With Mobile Handsets fast becoming a commodity with mobile apps and services becoming the more important factor,Global Handset Hardware Companies are seriously threatened.With success in one of the biggest,fast growing and competitive markets,could these small handset makers penetrate global markets as well.Micromax which is the most successful amongst the host of small,nimbe Indian companies has already starting marketing its phones in the Middle East.With low cost $100 Android phones it could lead major prices wars in the West as well.The fat margins on smartphones enjoyed by Apple,Motorola,HTC,Samsung,LG and others could be a thing of the past.Its an event that cannot be underestimated by investors in these stocks.As the sharp fall in Research in Motion and Nokia shows,the mobile market is a fast changing one and the "Hero" (pun intended) of today can easily become zeros of tomorrow.

Google,Good Energies look to Realize part of 4000 GW US Offshore Wind Energy Potential through Offshore Underground Electricity Transmission

The Transmission Line will give a huge boost to Offshore WInd Energy in the United States.The Government has estimated a 4000 GW Offshore Wind Potential which is almost 4 times bigger than the current 1000 GW Electricity Generating Capacity . However note the load factors for wind is usually 1/4th to 1/3rd that of normal Fossil Fuel Energy so it would be incorrect to say that Offshore Wind could generate 4 times the current US Electricity like some websites are doing.However this is not to takeaway from the fact that this will help wind energy and green jobs considerably.US is seriously lagging behind countries like China and South Korea in the upcoming Green Industry.Lack of US Climate Legislation and indifferent individuals and companies are creating massive roadblocks in Climate Mitigation.Tranmission Costs are a big hurdle for Offshore as well as Onshore Wind Energy.Note the bigger the consumer area for Renewable Energy the less the adverse affects of intermittency.The Tres Amigas Transmission SuperHub is another example of Private Initiative in the Electricity Transmission Area.While the dollar benefits to the investing companies might be uncertain,the Green Benefits of this move are immense.The US Electricity Regulator has already given a thumbs up and the US Administration also seems very supportive recently approving the Cape Wind Offshore Wind Farm in Federal Waters in Nanutech Sound.
