- From Han unification. (Wiktionary)
“In January, AsusTek split into three separate entities Asus, which deals primarily with Asus-branded PCs and laptops including the wildly popular EEE PC, Pegatron, which handles the motherboard business (though we keep the Asus brand name on them), and Unihan, which handles many of the other non-PC related Asus product line.”
“The third company, Unihan, will handle chassis and sub-component manufacturing.”
“Through an interesting Language Log post ("Semen, green rice and the rate of internet decay") by Mark Liberman, I learned about the Unihan site (it was actually mentioned in the comments to this LH post from last year, but there was so much else being discussed I didn't even notice it).”
“Then when the consensus was actually acted upon, and PropertyAliases.txt with the changes started to see review, it dawned on everybody that, rather than have the official Unihan tag be a third alias, it should be the "long" name in the PropertyAliases.txt.”
“Because the Unihan tags in the Unihan Database have longstanding status, predating by at least a decade the decision to tack "cj" onto the front of them for PropertyAliases.txt, and because the Unihan tags are used everywhere in the Unihan Database and its documentation, it became clear that those had to be the official name of those properties.”
“Then, the Unihan tag itself (without the "cj" prefix) would be added as a (third) alias, because people might well be using the exact Unihan tag for matching, and it wouldn't make sense to disable that.”
“And the UTC wanted the labels with the "cj" on them in the short abbreviated field, because everybody agreed that there was no utility to attempting to shorten the Unihan tags further; they would just turn into unmnemonic gobblydegook.”
“Pegatron needs more time: Q&A with Denese Yao, spokesperson for Pegatron and Unihan”
“Last year most of you will probably remember that ASUS divided its core company into three parts - Asus, Pegatron and Unihan.”
“ASUS remained the brand name goods that you buy, Pegatron became the OEM manufacturer and Unihan basically handles everything else that ASUS manufactures that doesn't fall under the first two entities.”
‘Unihan’ hasn't been added to any lists yet.
Looking for tweets for Unihan.
