The Solution To All Those Retina-Sized Images

All the ones I have that I can’t run here due to shrinking image storage space.

Their own damned blog: Mike Cane Retina (tentative title; will probably be Mike Cane’s Retina Dump).

That’s not the template I’ll use. Just a fugly placeholder (and STFU about my WordPress avatar; that’s Mike Mercury of Supercar).

And I’m not starting it until next week. (Or so I think.)

I have new iPad Pro images from this weekend that were hell to get stored online somewhere. They’re just so massive!

I’m leaving this post as a Sticky until I start the other blog, otherwise I’m bound to forget.

I’ll work out how I arrange things over the coming days. Don’t bother peeking. You’re bound just to see a mess until I’m ready.

Xiaomi Mi Pad vs Mi Pad 2 Comparison: What’s Changed?


How much will the reduced battery capacity affect run time? I don’t know. Xiaomi is claiming MIUI has very good battery optimization. That could be so — but what about Windows 10?

More details: [Reviews] [MIUI Device Team]Comparison Mi Pad Vs Mi Pad 2

The 16GB Android-only version will be available for sale on November 27, this Friday. The 64GB Windows 10 version will allegedly be available late December. And there are already rumors about that the version of Windows 10 on it will have unknown bits missing. Given the lack of microSD card slot, that’s unsurprising.

Also: Windows 10 option — but only 2GBs of RAM? Xiaomi is insane.

New Image Of MiPad 2: Still An iPad Mini Clone?


Xiaomi published a picture of the Mi Pad 2 and no one noticed

I didn’t notice because I no longer check Weibo every day and the tablet will be announced tomorrow.

And with an Intel CPU, this isn’t going to have a record-setting AnTuTu score.


Same-day update after the break.

Colorfly Again Pushes “Nexus 8”


Colorfly sends out more press material trying to capitalize on past confusion that American and European sites reported as a possible “Nexus 8” tablet.

It’s not. It’ll be called the Hero 8 and is a new Colorfly tablet.

Only IMP3Net is publishing the press material with attribution of its source: Colorfly [Google Translate].
