If it's from Epson, it must have proprietary batteries that must be replaced every 30 days whether you use the glasses or not. You can try 3rd party batteries, but everything will look blurry when you use them.

That's pretty much how Epson printers work.

Intel cancels x86 for Smartphone and Tablet. Intel should stop being uselessly arrogant and make ARM processors, like everyone else.

The ARM processor was designed by Acorn, most known for the british BBC model B home computer. Apple did get involved as a partner when ARN became Advanced Risc Machines instead of Acorn Risc Machine., but my first ARM processor sat in the Acorn R-140 workstation back in the nineties. The first ARM with MMU, capable of running BSD Unix.

DEC was also involved, and as part of a lawsuit settlement Intel got rights to the StrongARM implementation. From this Intel created the XScale series of cores and CPU's. I have 2 old Intel NAS boxes here that have "Intel inside" stickers on the front... And Intel XScale (AKA ARM) processor inside.

+Simos Xenitellis Android N introduces Windows killing, finally. This means Smartphones have to output a different productive UI to the external display. Just as well Google must partner with Nintendo and all game companies to make Android the gaming platform by default, that also requires to use the phone's amazing Adreno 530 and other adanced GPU's to output amazing game graphics on an external display. Smartphones can't possibly show the detail no matter how high the pixel density, smartphones and phablet displays are too small for productivity and console gaming. The Nexus phones are ridiculously expensive, of course Google can afford a $0.20 or $0.30 chip to be added to the motherboard to give decent functionality to using a USB Type-C connector. Windows Continuum is the way to go, Android Continnum must be a star feature of the next Android platform.

Intel must manufacture ARM designs now. Intel fires 12'000 employees amid complete multi-decade failure in strategy, trying to force anti-competitive subsidization behavior in China and everywhere, as a desperate attempt at stopping ARM designs dominating all of mobile computing, Intel has failed. Intel will continue to fail for as long as they try to force the market to use x86.

+Lars Eriksen there are manufacturers with short-term vision, they don't care about further in the future than 6 months or so ahead, they are executives with golden parachutes they don't feel any responsibility towards their company on the long term, thus they take Intel's illegal "subsidies" and "discounts", they take Intel's promise of "free marketing", they take Intel's promise of "funded reference designs", they take all that as basically free money, perhaps even free bonuses sponsored by Intel, it's a giant scam whereby Intel is paying everyone in Shenzhen by the Billions of dollars every year. This strategy has been a total and complete failure, which is why Intel now has to fire 12 thousand people. But on the other hand, this might be something in the same corrupt and dirty ballpark as what Microsoft did to Nokia, it was just a ploy to get a legal justification to fire a lot of people within Intel, and in Microsoft's case within Nokia. They knew a long time ago that they wanted to fire all those employees, that they were far too big with no vision for future innovation and no wish to invest in major innovation, so they scheme ways to "create failure" within their companies, which then allows them to go ahead and fire a lot of their employees, with the backing of shareholder and with the regulators accept and "understanding".

$79 Remix OS Laptop on 64bit Allwinner A64 quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 The world's cheapest usable Laptop. It's ARM Powered, it runs Remix OS 2.0 on Allwinner A64 quad-core ARM Cortex-A53, with an ARM Mali400MP2 GPU, with a decent 11.6" 1366x768 display, a good keyboard and a basic mousepad (better mousepad option can be used), 1GB RAM and 8GB Flash, with 2GB RAM and more Flash options also possible. The price for this laptop can be as low as $79 to $99 if mass produced in huge volumes in the weeks/months to come, depending on the 1GB or 2GB RAM and depending on the installed Flash storage capacity (8GB, 16GB or 32GB), depending on the installed battery capacity/quality (battery life) and depending on the mousepad quality. There is also an about $20 higher priced 14.1" Allwinner A64 Remix OS 2.0 Laptop alternative available. The price totally depends on which distributor takes this platform and distribute it where and what profit margins they decide to take. If the demand is high, this Allwinner A64 Remix OS Laptop will be fully funded on crowdfunding platforms, then available in all retail stores and available as an impulse buy at supermarkets around the world. This, I think, is the big chance for Allwinner to make their A64 processor super popular. Also they have a nice open mold design 2-in-1 Laptop Tablet convertible design that should be bulk priced also below $99 with an 11.6" IPS touch screen, and also a decent keyboard and mousepad. The Remix OS team has already provided very stable support with many over-the-air updates on the 64bit Allwinner A64 platform as it's used in the very popular crowdfunded and mass produced Remix Mini which I previously filmed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNAHH3EpO_w

A ton of delicious healthy looking/tasting vegetarian-only food as an all-you-can-eat Buffet, I like the fake meats in nice sauce with fried rice, but there are tons of much more healthy Asian vegetarian things, and all the efforts you put into eating the healthy food, you can cancel by unlimited ice cream, cakes, chocolate covered fruits and soda if you want. The normal price per person is 770TWD, they close every day at 9PM.

Simple. Get the Goat from Nisyros and the Elephant Eye for desert with a 1L mineral water. The waitress recommended me those and it was really delicious but it'll cost you 23.50€ without the tip (15€ Goat dish, 6€ Elephant Eye desert and 2.50€ 1L mineral water), which is a bit more than a 2.50€ chicken or pork Gyros from the street.
