Xiaomi + AOKP: HOAX!

News is going around that AOKP has teamed with Xiaomi on MIUI 7.

It’s a hoax.

No one bothered to translate the headline.

I did.

KANG MI NAO! = KANG MI NOT!

The hoax post that fooled many.

Thunderbirds Are Go: THREE!

Another screensnap from my two minutes of spy footage.

Thunderbirds Are Go! review: you’ll get over the CGI

I keep swinging back and forth. Will I put this in the category of the crappy anime Thunderbirds 2086, consider it a reboot (like Battlestar Galactica), or — and yes, there’s a third option — think of it as what Gerry himself would have done if he was again young and had this as his idea now.

I don’t think I’ll know until I see it on Saturday (thank you, Internet!) — or maybe even after the entire season(!). Meanwhile, tomorrow is the behind-the-scenes special. I expect that will only confuse me more until Saturday.

The thing about the original series is that it was amazing to see puppets and miniatures do all of what they did. CGI just lacks that jaw-drop factor. Eh, but I am older now. Kids will probably love it anyway.

How The Hell Does This Even Make Any Sense?!

POLICE: FIGHT OVER $500 LOTTERY WIN LED TO MURDER-SUICIDE

A guy wins $500 on a scratch-off lottery ticket. His girlfriend wants some. He doesn’t want to share. He shoots her and then shoots himself dead. She later dies at the hospital.

Neither one of them gets the money.

This country is spinning into a whirlpool of insanity.

Teclast Announces Core-M Tablet, TV Box

The TV box doesn’t interest me. Briefly, it has an Intel CPU, uses YunOS in collaboration with content from Alibaba and will be priced at 299 yuan. This will likely not work outside of China and frankly, it’s TV, so I don’t care.

Now onto the Core-M tablet Weibos …
