    Dunno how they do it, even in China. E.g., over here we have a
    cigarrette gas lighter sell at 3 for about US$0.20. Those with a
    built-in flashlight made up of a white LED and 3 button cells +
    switch go for 20c each. They'd probably be cheaper if the
    equivalent of 20 US cents wasn't a convenient round figure in our
    currency. A single button cell of that size (for watches) sells
    in the white market for $0.50-1.00!!

  6. 'Meanwell' is a phonetic translation of the two Chinese characters
    that make up the name of the Taiwan-based manufacturer. The characters
    individually mean something like "shiny" and "latitude", but together,
    AFAIUI, there's no obvious meaning (other than just a name).

    The pronunciation in Mandarin is ming2 wei3明.html纬.html

    Or the Mazda Laputa.

    Reminds me of a story from a Dutch art painter who worked in Sweden.
    At some point he needed white paint. He could not get it in Sweden so
    he went to Holland to get a large container of white paint. The Dutch
    word for white is wit. The moment he stepped on the boat to Sweden
    people started to giggle when they saw the container with paint. Same
    at the Swedish customs and during the bus drive to his home in Sweden.
    Even his Swedish girlfriend started to laugh when he arrived. She
    explained to him WIT (which was written on the container with big
    letters) is slang for vagina in Sweden.

    I've heard that the Chevy Nova was a total flop in Mexico. :)
