Perhaps in a sign of things to come, China has officially usurped the United States as the world’s #1 exporter of Technology goods. The numbers are pretty astounding. In 2004 China shipped $180 Billion in Laptops, cell phones and various other technology devices. This massive amount compares with the US figure of $149 billion. Both Nations increased their technology exports from 2003 where the US was #1 with $137 billion and China #2 with $123 billion.
