It has an Age Rating of 4+.

Now I wonder if Apple’s iBooks software collects data? I know that Kobo does — otherwise they couldn’t give out their steenkin’ badges.
I wasn’t going to blog this because the Weibos were confusing. But Gamersky made it into an article.
The current practice in phone manufacturing is to glue the CPU — and some other components — to the circuit board. This prevents them from coming loose due to a fall, or bending, or thermal expansion/contraction.

The restrictions have been very grim and have had a huge impact on the industry.
Basically, the government is killing that industry. SARFT has come up with a “unified platform” that all OTT boxes must use.

Many Internet TV box players will simply go out of business and users will be subjected to what the government allows them to have.

In light of the new iPhone 6 Plus, this is being passed all around Twitter: Feb 13, 2012 — Samsung’s Galaxy Note is the most useless phone I’ve used
The phone is too big. You will look stupid talking on it, people will laugh at you, and you’ll be unhappy if you buy it.
Meanwhile, since I venture out into the Real World: April 7, 2012 — Samsung’s Galaxy Note Phone Is A Monster Hit
