Translation - English On April 15 this year, China Mobile became the first to announce the official release of its G3 netbook integrated with a TD module during a press conference joined by several PC manufacturers including Lenovo, Acer and Dell.
Only a little more than 10 hours later, China Telecom made a grand appearance together with 11 PC manufacturers and their 13 models of netbooks and notebooks. It was learned that many of these brand names were also present at China Mobile’s netbook launching press conference.
Shortly afterwards and on April 28, China Unicom officially unveiled the brand name “wo” for its brand new 3G business and 3G products including a customer order netbook with a built-in WCDMA chip.

Source text - Chinese 在无所不在网络中，计算设备和通信设备将遍布所有地方，甚至你在散步时，身上有一个“人体域网”(BAN)。通信方式不仅是人与人之间，而且还包括人-机之间和机-机之间(M2M)的通信。能够上网的设备或器具将比现在广泛得多，包括从电视机到MP3播放机，再到电子报刊、智能大楼、电冰箱等家电，甚至于首饰大小的佩戴式应用设备，无处不有。它们如同互联网上的计算机一样工作。M2M通信可以应用于各个领域、各个角落。例如，生物信息传递、异地备份、web缓存、多播馈送、新闻馈送、信息批处理、数据库同步、网格计算、多媒体电子信箱、地-空数据库映射、数据库挖掘以及大量的监视和控制都是机对机应用的用武之地。
Translation - English In a Ubiquitous Network environment, computing and communication devices will be everywhere: there will be a “body area network” around you even when you take a walk. Communication will not only be Man to Man, but also Man to Machine and Machine to Machine (M2M). A lot more devices and articles will come with Internet capacity, ranging from TV sets, MP3 players to digital newspapers, intelligent buildings, house-hold electric appliances like refrigerators, and even jewelry-size wearable devices, and they will be everywhere. They will work like the computers on the Internet. M2M communication can be applied to every field and at every corner. For example, biological information transfer, remote backup, web caching, multicast feed, news feed, batch processing, database synchronization, grid computing, multimedia e-mail, surface-air database mapping, database mining and the numerous monitoring and control systems are all areas where M2M applications can be useful.

Source text - English The patented Cyclotech SCARPA* (Sand Conveying And Removal apPAratus) system is a proprietary technology designed to remove sand and other solids from a production separator on either a continuous or batch basis. The system is modular in design which implies that it can be retrofitted into existing separators as well as being incorporated into new-build plants. The Cyclotech SCARPA system can convert a three-phase separator into a true four-phase separator, or a two-phase separator into a true three-phase separator. The system has been developed for both topsides and subsea production separators.
In either continuous or batch mode, the Cyclotech SCARPA system needs less water, is much less disruptive of the oil/water separation process and removes solids more efficiently than a conventional jetting operation. Typically a longer flushing period is required in batch mode but sand removal operations are generally not time-critical. Irrespective of the amount of sand in the separator, the Cyclotech SCARPA system will not allow the discharged sand concentration to rise above a preset peak thus trading operation time for higher availability and reliability.
