BofA in Talks to Pay At Least $12 Billion to Settle Probes
Bank of America Corp. is in talks to pay at least $12 billion to settle probes by the Justice Department and a number of states into the bank’s alleged handling of shoddy mortgages, according to people familiar with the negotiations.
At least $5 billion of that amount is expected to go towards consumer relief–consisting of help for homeowners in reducing principal amounts, reducing monthly payments, and paying for blight removal in struggling neighborhoods, these people said.
This is bullshit.
The CUBE Talk9X has a Retina-class 9.7 inch IGZO screen, an octa-core MediaTek 8392 CPU with peak frequency of 2GHz (allegedly), 2GBs of RAM, 16GBs of internal storage, a 2MP front and 8MP back camera, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, a 10,000mAh battery, and 3G (WCDMA + TD-SCDMA dual 3G, compatible with GSM — at least in China and probably Europe too). It runs Android 4.4 — without any modifications, from the looks of it.

iFive Mini 3GS: Root Achieved
I didn’t notice it until Rockchip pointed it out in a pimping post [Google Translate].
And now it’s very clear that if the Chinese can get their tablets widely in stores — especially in America — they will wind up crushing even market leader Samsung.
This is not a photo of tablets…
… it’s a photograph of targets.
Leaked yesterday, official today. It’s basically the Mini 3 with 3G [Google Translate].
At post time, Five doesn’t yet list it at their site but there are three Tmall listings [one, two, three].
Other sites have mentioned the offering from Emdoor, but I didn’t bother with it until I could see some good pictures. And 1Pad provided them [Google Translate]
To be priced at 625 yuan, that’s — at post time — just US$99.98!
At that price, even I would be tempted to get one despite my detestation of Windows 8.x.
