Posted to YouTube days before he wound up suffering a stroke, there’s this ironic — prophetic? — image of writer Harlan Ellison from the video available after the break.
And yes, that’s an MRI of his own head, done years and years earlier.
Thanks to Vladimir Burnin in Comments for pointing it out. It’s listed at the Chinese Teclast site.
They’re not calling it the Teclast X98 Air II With Windows, but it uses the same Intel Z3736F as the Air II, with a peak frequency of 2.16GHz.
This is the first 9.7-inch tablet Teclast has produced with Windows 8.1 pre-installed. Prior tablets were Android-based and required an onerous firmware download and installation.
IMP3Net has some press material [Google Translate].
The official Tmall page (sales begin on the 15th).
My head is beginning to spin trying to keep straight all of the Teclast tablets.
It seems to be the same as the X89HD except the CPU has been upgraded to the Z3736F at 2.16GHz peak frequency.
ITV’s Thunderbirds YouTube channel uploaded a video with Richard Taylor and others talking about the new series.
Frankly, I hardly heard a word they said the first time I watched because it has background music.
Is some of the music from the series?
See the video after the break.
Aw shit shit shit shit shit.

Today is one of those rare days when I’ll be doing more than ten posts in a day.

This is a big deal over in China, since the OnePlus One phone is the first China brand to be just about universally praised in the top-tier American tech press.
