It’s the same damn Nook Touch browser they offered two years ago.
Photo published here earlier:
I stopped using Flickr when I hit the limit for free photos. I also transferred everything to a blog.
Things have changed since then. We have tablets with Retina-class screens. Smartphones with 13MP cameras.
I’ll have to think about using Flickr again. But first I’ll really need a pocketable device that’s suitable for such photos.
Anyway, here’s my old Flickr.
Now, when will WordPress up their free image storage to 1TB? I’m already past half of my free 3GBs of space just for this blog.
I’m delighted to announce that we’ve reached an agreement to acquire Tumblr!
We promise not to screw it up.
In terms of working together, Tumblr can deploy Yahoo!’s personalization technology and search infrastructure to help its users discover creators, bloggers, and content they’ll love.
The countdown clock now starts to the first complaints of “Why isn’t my Tumblr being indexed in Yahoo!?” and “What happened to my Tumblr of felching photos?” (as an example of X-rated; I have no idea if such a thing actually exists).
The Chuwi V88 got another review in China.

And what was their AnTuTu score?

Having brought Google Play to their color tablets in a last-ditch and now too-late attempt at relevancy — and to not strand future orphaned owners — Nook Media is now going to reverse a prior cruel decision and bring back the web browser it earlier shut down on the Nook Touch.
Major spoilers ahead!
Bookmark and come back after you’ve seen it.
Newsmy/Newman S8 Color:
I don’t know what’s happening here. Is Newsmy rebranding from Chuwi? Or are both Chuwi and Newsmy sourcing a design from someone else?
Full details are in the Guide To Chinese iPad Mini Clones (jump to the bottom).
My own inability earlier this week to get a link to the beta of Android 4.2.2 for the Onda V818 hasn’t stopped others from finding it.
Here are two posts:
English at Arctablet: Onda V818 mini (V1 hardware) Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean root custom firmware V3.0 (2013-05-15) — which requires registration to see links (I wish forums would stop that practice)
Spanish at Forotablets: [TUTORIAL] Actualizar ROM v3.0 en Onda v818 mini. (Android 4.2.2)
Maybe combining the two can do it without registering at Arctablet.
I don’t own an Onda V818 so can neither test this nor vouch for it. Those of a less adventurous nature might want to wait for the final non-beta firmware via OTA notification.
If you do this, run a new AnTuTu test and Comment with the score and other observations.
The Onda V818 runs on an AllWinner A31s CPU. Do not try this firmware with either the HKC Q79 (Quest) or the Chuwi V88!
… given the alarming rate at which consumers worldwide are speaking with their wallets and selecting Android handsets over iOS handsets. With just a few more quarters like this, coupled with the cumulative effect of similar sales data over the past 2-3 years and the likely coming wave of Android-based tablets, it is a given (to me, anyway) that Android will be soon be effectively ubiquitous around the globe.
For a minute, forget all the complaining about how Hangouts weren’t instantly available for everyone at the same time. Most everyone should be good to go by now and have their new Hangouts app. Everyone. Think about that — Google Talk, a long staple and core feature of the operating system, was updated with a slew of new features without you getting a system-wide update.
Two interesting posts that somehow fit together. But I can’t concentrate on them right now, so here’s this post for later.
