Cities stories

Last week, I went to Shanghai for the very first time — I've been to other parts of China before. With no expectations, I landed in Shanghai ready to see the newest HP computers. I ended up seeing more than just Sleekbooks, new Ultrabooks and portable printers. Consider this my travel B-roll. These are my impressions of a city we all write about quite a bit as tech reporters, but usually for the gadgets being showcased, not the amazing city itself.
However hard you work on the next great tech innovation in your underground volcano lair, there's still going to be a point at which you need to test it out in the "real world." But rather than risk your latest discovery running amok and killing a bunch of people, there will soon be a fully operational but totally empty city in New Mexico for you to experiment with.
