Xperia C5 Ultra pre-sales sell out in Hong Kong
I guess the equivalent of US$425.00 is seen as not too much to pay for it.
But over on this side of the world, there’s still the US$99 ZTE Zmax, the US$199 LG G Stylo, the $250 Alcatel OneTouch Idol, and the US$299 Asus Zenfone 2, to name just four competitors I’ve posted about here. (And Asus might do a six-inch model.)
At US$425, the reviews for that phone had better find zero flaws.

It’s really been nothing more than a regular cop show with some “fuck” thrown in.
The cops are generic cliché templates. There’s no one special like Cohle or as frustratingly ordinary as Hart.
I’ve enjoyed foreign cop shows more, such as Forbrydelsen and Braquo.

A new development at the ARCTablet forum that could be the start of transforming the Insignia Flex Elite 7.85 into something worth getting.

Canadian doctor who kept thalidomide out of U.S. dies
The drug, made by the German firm Chemie Grünenthal, was approved for use in countries around the world, including Britain, Japan and Canada. But Dr. Kelsey, a novice medical examiner working for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration at the dawn of the 1960s, remained skeptical about its safety. Her insistence on obtaining scientific evidence despite the drug company’s relentless lobbying kept thalidomide at bay in the United States.
I doubt anyone today at the FDA could stand up against a pharma company.
She was a hero.
Rest in peace.

After the break is a video I’m having a very, very, very difficult time believing.
It shows a notebook-sized Segway-like board.
That itself is unbelievable. I’ve been watching alternative transportation on YouTube and there’s been nothing like this before now.
Totally unbelievable is it being used to push an occupied wheelchair.
And what makes me want to scream “FRAUD!!!” is such a small device putting out enough torque to climb a hill.
See if you believe it …
As things are developing today, there will be several posts about the Onda V919 3G Air Core-M tablet.
After the break is an unboxing video from a vendor showing a Windows 10 bootup time of about ten-to-twelve seconds.
Onda is having an engineer answer questions about the Onda V919 3G Air Core-M on Weibo today and a bit of performance information not available until now has come out.
It’s the AnTuTu score for Android 5.x:
Click = big; red highlighting added by me.
They’re comparing it to an octa-core MediaTek — the same MediaTek CPU CUBE tried to pass off with a fraudulent score (see this also).
