Quote: Steven Moffat

Sherlock season 4: ‘Frightening, tough, emotional upheaval’

People want to be mocking of that [Fifty Shades of Grey]. But bloody hell, that’s amazing—that [EL James] turned her fandom of something into something that’s an industry in itself. Why are we not applauding until our hands bleed? No, we mock her. We say, “Oh, it’s not very good.” Except she managed to write something that everybody wants to read. It’s “not very good”? By what standard is it not good if loads and loads of people love it? “Why don’t you f–k off!” It’s not for me, but I think she’s awfully clever.

Eight-inch 1280 x 800 screen, Intel Z3735F CPU, 2GBs of RAM, 64GBs of internal storage, 2MP front and 5MP back cameras, 4,500mah battery.

For 699 yuan. That’s about US$112.

More details at the Pipo forum [Google Translate].

Expect the same from others and for a tablet like this to drop in price by probably half towards the end of the year.

Weibo Glitch(?)

Something has gone wrong with my Weibo account.

I’ve been asked to sign in (I usually don’t sign out) — and now it’s saying the email I used to register isn’t recognized.

If my account has been deleted, this is a big disaster for me. I didn’t bookmark all the new accounts I added since getting an account.


Same-day update: My Weibo access is totally fucked for today. Will try to access it as best I can using limited number of old Bookmarks. Screensnaps will look different, without account logos.
