I saw this in the news this morning:

Texas surpasses California as top tech exporter | Dallas Morning News

What do you guys think, is the Texas Tech sector catching up with California?

We may be moving ahead in the tech sector but we fall so far behind in other important areas.

I dont even need to even open the link to know that this is solely because of manufacturing, not design and engineering and not due to innovation which is where California rules the world, and that's really all that matters to me.

That said, this is good news nationally really as my first impression was: Better that tech products are made in TX than China.

I think I said the same thing several months ago & got torn up one side & down the other for it by several forumers whom will remain nameless. Y'all know who you are.

Texas exported more semi conductors "mostly to Mexico" than California!

Texas may have Cali beat in manufacturing, but the best of the best still head to Cali which is still R&D central.
