Analysts say NEC and other Japanese cellphone makers were tied too closely to Japanese network operators, developing what has come to be known in that country as a “Galápagos” effect; devices were cut off from the evolution of the phone business elsewhere. As a result, the makers failed to grasp the significance of the rise of the smartphone.
分析人士称，NEC及其他日本手机制造商 与日本网络运营商捆绑过紧，形成了日本所谓的“加拉帕戈斯效应”（Galápagos effect，指某种产业或者产品只在某国国内占有较大市场份额，并形成孤立市场——译注）。日本的手机完全隔绝于别国手机业务的进化。所以，日本手机制 造商没能意识到智能手机崛起的重要性。
Galápagos syndrome or Jalápagos (Japan + Galapagos) is what the Japanese call when they develop a product that evolves isolated from world markets. The term comes from the Galápagos Islands where Darwin studied plants and animals that were genetically isolated.
- "Japan’s cellphones are like the endemic species that Darwin encountered on the Galápagos Islands — fantastically evolved and divergent from their mainland cousins — explains Takeshi Natsuno, who teaches at Tokyo’s Keio University."
- "Japanese phones suffer from 'Galapagos Syndrome' — are too complex to survive abroad.
- "It has been claimed that the indigenous American automotive industry has suffered from the Galapagos Syndrome – its products have evolved separately from the rest of the world."

It has been 50 years since scientists first created DNA in a test tube, stitching ordinary chemical ingredients together to make life's most extraordinary molecule. Until recently, however, even the most sophisticated laboratories could make only small snippets of DNA -- an extra gene or two to be inserted into corn plants, for example, to help the plants ward off insects or tolerate drought抗旱.
