Pity that young singaporeans belittle themselves

I was reading about a particular debate that happened over the previous weekend. The main objective of the debate was of a different topic but I was lamenting the fact that young Singaporeans (ok, I'm not THAT old) are belittling themselves that Singapore cannot make it big without foreign talent, saying that we cannot make our own version of iPhone or Toyota.

However, do they know that Creative made sound cards popular before a series of missteps caused their present predicament? Do they know that thumbdrive was invented in Singapore? Do they know that Razer is a homegrown brand? How about the X-mini?

Do Singaporeans belittle themselves too much? Judging from the summary of the debate, it seems so. Pity.
