Watch out for Apple inventing some of the features Xiaomi copied from future iPhones soon!
 
The Xiaomi Mi Note Pro has some of the most ridiculous specs we've ever seen in a smartphone to this point. Too bad it probably won't get a global launch.
Xiaomi had a few big surprise announcements to make this morning, and we mean that both figuratively and literally. First, the literally -- it's a phablet. Two phablets, in fact. And boy, are they powerful.

Very interesting light ale from a German Namibian at The Biscuit Mill in Cape Town. Substituted hops with rooibos tea for a smooth IPA-like taste
