Scarlett Johansson: Moron, Enemy Of Culture, Part Three

Scarlett Johansson wins defamation case against French novelist

However, the court threw out her argument that the book … “fraudulently exploited her name, her image and her celebrity” and should not be translated or made into a film, as planned. Instead of the €50,000 (£40,000) in damages Johansson claimed, the court awarded her just €2,500, plus €2,500 in legal costs, saying she had already talked about her private life in interviews.

She got just €2,500. She spends more than that on facials!

Teclast X89HD: More Information

Thanks to nubkandoo in Comments. He pointed out a price of 1,700 yuan and I asked for the source. This set me off on an unexpected second round of research and I have some new info.

It’s already listed for pre-sale at Tmall [Google Translate]:


And the price is indeed 1,699 yuan. To put that in perspective, the Xiaomi MiPad is considered by the domestic Chinese to be expensive at 1,499 yuan.

1,699 yuan is about US$274!

That’s for a 7.9-inch tablet! From China!

But that price is most likely wrong.

Onda’s Benchmark Claims For V989 A80-Based Tablet

IMP3Net has run Onda press material pimping their upcoming octa-core Allwinner A80-based iPad Air clone, the V989 [Google Translate]:


We won’t know how fraudulent these benchmarks turn out to be until actual paying users have their hands on the tablet.

I say that because Onda claimed a 20,000-range AnTuTu score for the Allwinner A31s, which has an honest AnTuTu score in the 12,000-range.

And Allwinner never replied to my inquiry.

Xiaomi MiPad Second 50K Batch Again Sells Out In Less Than Four Minutes

At first I couldn’t find their sold-out Weibo because it wasn’t done as prominently as the first and I issued a sort of panic post about it. (In my weak defense, I did a Twitter Search and checked other sites to see if they saw such an announcement too. There was nothing! So again I’m first — and Techmeme can ignore me yet again.)

Now here’s the official Weibo announcement that the second batch has indeed sold out:
