Nokia N1: Fifth Update

I didn’t count them. Number five is what ZOL is claiming [Google Translate].

What the latest update does:

1. Z-Launcher updated to 1.1.18-beta

2. Fix the Android native launcher reusable add contacts desktop issues

3. Adjust the maximum volume of the headphones, headphone volume and the addition of a warning to comply with European regulations

4. Compatibility optimize network links

5. Optimize OTA download settings

6. optimize the ambient light detection accuracy rate, and automatically adjusts the brightness turned on by default

7. Optimized boot animation playback fluency

It’s interesting that the EU audio warning has been added. One step closer to a release outside of China?

Making A Living Via The Internet

The Podcast Is the Product for Keith and the Girl

For Khalili and Malley, the podcast is the product. Through VIP membership, merchandise sales, and advertising, Keith and the Girl revenue pays its co-hosts’ salaries plus rent on a one-bedroom apartment in Astoria, Queens, that they had converted into a professional studio. Three full-time employees and a handful of freelancers also receive a slice of the pie.

That’s not insignificant.

I’ve never heard of Khalili and Malley or their podcast. I grabbed a free copy of the printed Village Voice that had them on the cover and was quickly immersed in the story.

But all they have are dummy units. I really wanted to experience that TriLuminous screen.

So, to their store.

It was a miserable experience.

Newest Best Buy Trio Tablet Temptation: Don’t Buy It!

Best Buy:

(Note that Best Buy’s listing screws up all the specs. This is an iPad Mini clone with a 4:3 1024 x 768 screen.)

I didn’t have a camera with me yesterday, so you’ll have to take my word that I gave it a little test.

The latest version of AnTuTu downloaded at Best Buy from the Google Play Store revealed a score in the 15,000-range. This is an Allwinner A31-series CPU with 1GB of RAM and 16GBs of internal storage.
