Screen Shot 2018-03-14 at 6.52.18 PMThe South China Morning Post has launched a tech news site called Abacus.

Executive producer Ravi Hiranand writes, “At Abacus, we’ll cover Chinese tech for the rest of the world.

“We’ll tell you what’s happening and why it matters to you. We’ll review the latest smartphones, drones and gadgets from China, explore the latest trends and break down who the big players are.

“To be clear, we’re not here to be a cheerleader. Technology is exciting, but it’s also dangerous. A network of security cameras with facial recognition may make it easier to catch criminals — but it also means private citizens can be tracked, whether by companies or the government.

“And you can’t talk about the internet in China without the Great Firewall. We won’t hesitate to cover the impact of censorship on the world’s largest online population and the regulations that make China’s internet so different to the rest of the world.

“China’s tech industry is going to keep on growing — and so will we. We hope you take the time to explore the site to see all we have to offer and return as we expand in the days, months and years to come.”
