Forget the OnePlus 2, another new OnePlus phone will be released this year

OnePlus New Phone 2015

In an interview with USA Today published over the weekend, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei revealed that the company has a second phone in the works that should be ready to ship by Christmas.

Bohemian Guitars Returns With Something That Will Encourage Ukulele Lady To Like You

j9t2zptp1thkmqsfda9n Bohemian Guitars first won our hearts with their unique oilcan git-fiddles, an instrument at once primitive and surprisingly advanced. I played with them about two years ago and now they’re back with two new instruments and an updated axe. The Boho 2.0 crowdfunding campaign is aimed at bringing both an oilcan bass and ukulele to market. How do they sound? Pretty good, as evidenced by… Read More

Canalys: Xiaomi and Huawei push Apple down into 3rd place in China, but still applying pressure

maxresdefault

Apple has lost its top position in smartphone shipments in China, reports Canalys, falling from the #1 slot it achieved in Q4 of 2014 to #3 in Q2 of this year.

Canalys did not reveal Apple’s market share (a number it would like its clients to pay for), stating only that Xiaomi took the top slot with a 15.9% share, with Huawei close behind at 15.7%. A separate market size estimate from Counterpoint, with similar numbers, suggests that Apple’s market share in the country may have fallen to around 12.2% … 

However, Canalys said that Apple continues to expand its sales activities and that it and Huawei are applying “immense pressure” against Xiaomi, and Counterpoint said that Apple shipments remained strong despite the usual seasonality factor.

Apple reported 112% revenue growth in China during the same quarter. A key difference between Apple and its local competitors in China, of course, is profitability. It was recently reported that Apple takes a full 92% of all the profits made in the entire smartphone industry.

Why So Many Countries Are Building Airstrips on These Remote Islands

The Spratly islands are not a natural spot for a layover. They are isolated—tiny, shallow islands spread out over a huge chunk of the South China Sea. So why are China and other nations rushing to construct airline runways and other infrastructure there?
