Hong Kong was the location of a recent story in The Register. What did the UK's online high-tech news ("Sci/Tech News for the World") think was so significant in HK? Was it the Cyberport? The use of HK-designed processors in PDA's? The exciting race for the IT Functional Constituency seat?
It was a crime story. How the HK Police lead the region against hi-tech crime? Software piracy (again)? Illegal online gambling? Getting close, it was… the smashing of the cricket gambling ring. Um, OK, it is good to know we are keeping a hi-tech reputation.
