Used to live in a backwoods Canadian coastal area. It wasn't unusual to head toward the marina to watch the 4th of July fireworks coming from the rich American yachts because they could afford to put on a better fireworks show than the local town did a few days earlier on Canada Day.
All things considered we have good neighbours. Elsewhere in the world, little nations that reside beside super powers are sleeping with one eye open. We're not worried about USA. If they want something from us they pull out a check book, not a cannon. It will be just another Saturday for us but hope you guys enjoy your Independence Day.
Not sure what this has to do with tech news. I guess gun powder was a significant invention. What better way to celebrate the greatness of America than with Chinese goods?
