Two episodes — out of six — in, liking it. You can see, above, they’re doing CGI as pioneered (or at least popularized) by the BBC series, Sherlock.
It’s a bit of everything so far. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (hacking), Forbrydelsen (potentially-explosive government scandal; wind-up montage at episode end), and some other things I can’t recall at the moment. (Even the theme, which sounds a bit like the first season of American Horror Story.)
My days of doing per-episode posts are over. I inevitably fall behind in watching and get too embarrassed to catch up with posts weeks or months later (anyway, by then, who cares?).

I saw this as separate GIFs on Weibo.
I downloaded them, converted them to MP4 in the Cloud, uploaded to YouTube, then stitched them together with the YouTube editor.
It looks like a few seconds got cut off in all the conversions, but it’s still an incredible effort.
Next-day update: This turned out to be a music video from America that was sliced and diced into GIFs without sound and put on Weibo!
Via Youku, the first video of the Pipo P8 tablet.
Via Weibo communiqué:
I’m unable to embed it or even rip it to post to YouTube.
It’s in English and this is the best way to see it.
As posted earlier, I went to Apple Store SOHO to fondle and test the iPhone 6 Plus.
With the store’s WiFi being at its saturation point, I was lucky to get in just three basic tests.
1) The People of the Abyss
2) The American Magazine special condensed version for iOS
3) Surface Japan
See my permanent page, Google Books PDF Test for details.

I thought I did this test. But Search tells me no. So it’s a good thing I happened to do it today, unplanned.
I’m not sure which version of the Note 3 this is, quad-core Snapdragon or octa-core Exynos. Samsung likes to play Hide The Salami with the CPU. If one of them is U.S.-only, then that’s the one I used at Best Buy.
Like the LG G3 phone, the Note 3 has 3GBs of RAM. The screen is only 1920 x 1080 (hello, iPhone 6 Plus!) but 5.7 inches. And those extra 0.2 inches really make a difference. It looks bigger than the LG G3.
