@LostinNagoya: very biased anti-Korea comment. Korean companies expanded by benchmarking existing products and improving on them, and only now are they starting to show a bit of innovation. Same as Japanese companies benchmarking American/European products in the 60s and 70s, before becoming leaders in the 80s.
