This blog’s template sticks ten posts at a time on the front.
Today is yet another one of those days when I’ve done more than ten posts in a day.
So to see everything, when getting to the bottom of the scroll hit the “Older posts” link.

‘Addams Family’ Star Pugsley Dies From Heart Attack
Ken Weatherwax — who played Pugsley on “The Addams Family” TV show — died at his home Sunday in California after having a heart attack.
He was just 59.
Sure, an eight-inch Windows 8.1 tablet looks tasty at US$99.
But, my god, remember the 1GB of RAM and the 16GBs of storage. Yeah, some have 2GBs of RAM, but they’re still paired with just 16GBs of storage.
Better for less is already happening.
Tomorrow Chuwi will formally announce the already-leaked Vi8 [Google Translate]:
PadNews has the gory details (use Chrome, as somehow Google Translate no longer works).

Was He Even Really A Colonel? The Secret Life Of Colonel Sanders
In the 1970s, I was reading a bunch of books about entrepreneurs (this was before they became fashionable and few people even knew of the damn term).
One of them — and I no longer remember the title, dammit! — mentioned the Colonel in passing but it was revelatory. He was a kick-ass kind of guy who took no shit. No relation to that elderly and smiling and waving corporate brand the TV spots turned him into. It also turned out he hated Kentucky Fried Chicken. After he sold it, he said they ruined his recipe and the food they served was basically garbage! How can you not love a guy like that?
So go read the above article. It’s wonderful. That’s the real Colonel.
And don’t miss the link to the free PDF of his autobiography! (Since it’s issued by the corporation, it might have been sanitized, bit still.) So you don’t miss it, here’s the direct link.
Colonel Sanders had one of those lives that really is inspirational. No matter how much you’ve fucked-up in life, you can still win in the end. Don’t quit!
This is the second time I’ve seen this said. Now I’m believing it too.
Which is weird. Because why America so soon? It doesn’t fit in with Xiaomi’s previous assertions that the American market is too tough to jump into immediately.
This makes me wonder if they’ve teamed up with a carrier. And if that carrier is T-Mobile — and perhaps some other pre-pay carriers, such as Cricket.
I mention T-Mobile specifically due to its WiFi calling feature. That’s something Xiaomi is somewhat incorporating into phones in China right now.
I have no interest in this device. But since the score is from the AnTuTu people themselves, I drop it here for future reference.
