China’s economy used to be closed and inflexible: you can hardly compare the China of today to China twenty years ago. Nowadays China is a powerhouse of manufacturing and global trade, and increasingly, high tech products such as MP3 players are being produced in China and imported by distributors and small vendors worldwide. With quality of electronics products much more stable than it used to be, importers are flocking to buy electronics from China, seeing the obvious profit opportunities presented by the low Chinese production costs.
One of the primary reasons that Chinese businesses have become so successful in exporting electronics such as MP3 players is that Chinese goods are produced with great efficiency, making them affordable for consumers. A growth of electronics distributors has led to a shorter and more globally reaching supply chain for international electronics importers. Further, most wholesale buyers and consumers will agree that Chinese import electronics are increasingly becoming noted for their high degree of quality. In fact, if you decide to purchase a Chinese import electronic device, chances are it will come guaranteed with at least a full year’s warranty. This is comparable to what you might find when shopping for electronic goods manufactured in the United States and other countries.
For most people, price is major consideration when shopping around for electronic goods. MP3 and MP4 players have quickly revolutionized the way that most of us enjoy our music. These digital music players have made it possible for you to carry your entire CD collection in your coat pocket.
MP3 players are much cheaper now than they were even a couple of years ago. The demand for these popular flash music players, matched by a fast and adaptive supply from Chinese manufacturers, has meant ongoing price reductions on all types of player and similar flash memory devices. While it’s still possible to pay a lot for MP3 players bought in high street stores in the States and Europe, sourcing these directly from China shows some true value for money.
Another reason that so many people are now purchasing consumer electronics from Chinese distributors is that lead times tend to be much faster for products produced in China. The electronics market, and MP3 players in particular, moves very quickly. In order to keep up with the changing market and the latest in gadgets and design, consumer electronics firms must constantly be on top of the market in order to offer consumers what they want.
For Chinese electronics manufacturers , delivering quality products at low prices is what they focus on. Building brand recognition is usually not a big factor , let alone product recognition. A Chinese-designed MP3 player is in a way the opposite of an Apple iPod: the design and functions might be changed every month , as well as the product name , and a hundred different companies might have MP3 players made for them in order to put their brands on it. While large brands in electronics spend time and money marketing to justify their price tags , Chinese MP3 players will always be ahead of the game because the manufacturers are just focussed on getting the latest good quality products to market before anyone else.
If you decide to purchase an MP3 player from wholesale distributors based in the Chinese Mainland, you are not alone. As the Chinese market continues to open its doors and more Chinese-made electronics are imported into the United States, consumers will benefit from a greater selection of high-quality yet affordable electronic goods.
Many EBay sellers and other small-scale importers are now beginning to buy MP3 players and other electronics directly from suppliers in China. As with any international buying, you’d be advised to check you’re buying from a qualified, trustworthy source. Remember to ask about the warranty and how it is honoured if things go wrong with the MP3 player quality. With so much choice, especially from online electronics wholesalers, you won’t have trouble finding good product sources.

Finding news online
With printed newspapers losing subscribers every day, people are finding other options to stay up to date with their news. Newspaper sales reached their peak in 1970 when approximately 62 million newspapers were sold in the country every day. However, with the population in the U.S. on the rise, newspapers sales are not keeping up. It is estimated that approximately 55 million newspapers are sold every day.
In the 1920’s the average newspaper purchased per household peaked at 1.3. In the 1970’s that figure started to dip to below 1 paper per house. By the year 2000, the number dropped to .53 newspapers per household.
One reason is that people just don’t read as much as they used to. People seem to be busier then ever and just don’t take the time to read any more.
Many are switching their news habits by watching the big three network news and cable news programs in place of the newspaper. With so many options on TV news, it seems that there is a news station for every taste.
While many “older” adults still prefer newspapers, “young” adults have seemed to prefer to get their news from the internet. TV news still is the most accessed news source, but the internet is quickly becoming the favorite source of news, especially in the form of news blogs, news portals and online newspapers.
Online news is gaining popularity every day. Virtually every major newspaper has a version of an online newspaper. Pioneers like Mike Drudge have been leading the way in independent news providers. And there are countless news blogs across the web.
Part of what makes news blogs so popular is that they can be used as an RSS feed. This allows the news feed to be used on other blogs across the web and also allows the news feed to be read by many more viewers. People also love news blogs because you can leave comments and this creates a dialogue on the story which is a great way to feel like you are a part of the story.
Although newspapers may be on the decline, it does not mean that people have stopped reading the news, only where they read their news from. So it seems that if you are not getting your news online, you may soon be in the minority.
