Today, Xiaomi held a press conference for its global Hong Kong offering and Xiaomi’s CEO took some questions from journalists.They were curious to know why more than 70% of its revenue came from hardware in 2017 and how the company hopes to improve its gross profit from other businesses in the future.Lei Jun stated that as of last year, Xiaomi’s hardware business racked up a gross profit of 8.7% and this is the highest that he expects the company to achieve.Earlier this year, Lei Jun stated that Xiaomi’s net profit will not exceed 5% and any surplus will be given back to its consumers.Lei Jun reiterated that the company will always maintain a very low gross profit, and a very low hardware net profit, to ensure that Xiaomi’s hardware products remain competitive in the market.Such low gross margin does not mean that the company doesn’t make money.

The Fluance Ai40 is the third self-powered speaker I've reviewed in three weeks.Better yet, the price is right.UK and Australia prices haven't yet been released, but they convert to roughly £151 and AU$269.As regular Audiophiliac readers know, I haven't covered too many wireless products, mostly because they usually cost more and sound worse then similarly priced wired products.The Ai40 has a 1-inch (25mm) silk dome tweeter and a 5-inch (127mm) woven glass fiber composite woofer.Connectivity is limited to two sources: analog stereo RCA inputs and aptX Bluetooth, that's it.
The Woo Audio WA33 Elite Edition tube headphone amplifier improved the sound of every headphone in my collection.I've heard my share of great sounding tube amplifiers that don't sound all that much different than solid-state amps, but that's not the case with the WA33 Elite.It sounds richer, more voluptuous, and fuller bodied than the best solid-state designs.As for the design approach of this stacked, dual chassis amp I'll quote from the Woo Website, "The WA33 employs a true fully balanced design in a compact form factor, featuring a quad of 6C45 tubes for the driver that pushes a quad of 2A3 tubes for the power, and all in direct-heated triodes."Headphone connections include separate left and right channel 3-pin XLRs, one 4-pin stereo XLR, and one standard 6.3mm jack; on the rear panel there are two sets of stereo XLR inputs, one set of stereo RCA inputs and one set of stereo XLR outputs (there are no RCA outputs).When it came time to rock out the WA33 Elite muscled more slam, more guts, more head rattling power out of the RS-1s than I've ever heard before.
Exactly 30 years ago, James Hansen, the director of NASA's Institute for Space Studies, told the US Senate that the question of the day — whether climate change was happening — was no longer in doubt.The greenhouse effect that Hansen described — in which the widespread combustion of fossil fuels causes a heat-trapping buildup of gases like carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere — has since become almost common knowledge.That's quite a burden to leave the children of the future.The leaders that got us hereAfter Hansen's testimony, the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works sent a letter to Lee Thomas, the EPA administrator, asking for an examination of policy options that would help stabilize greenhouse gas emissions.Of course, behavioral psychologists and economists know that humans aren't good at coming together to deal with problems whose consequences seem far off.

As we previously reported, Xiaomi’s latest MIUI 10 is already out in its beta form for Chinese users and a selected number of devices.The guys over on the European side didn’t like it too much apparently, thus we now have a ROM everybody can download and install on their compatible devices.The released Xiaomi EU MIUI 10 ROM is available for most flagships as well as other recent devices, such as the Xiaomi Mi 5, Mi 6, Mi 8, Mi 8 SE, Mi MIX, Mi MIX 2, Mi MIX 2S, Mi Note 2, Redmi 5, and the Redmi Note 5 Pro.The Xiaomi EU ROM is, of course, based on the MIUI 10 China Developer ROM, which means it comes with lots of the features you’ll find on the official MIUI 10 OS as well as some neat home-cooked additions, including search gestures, screen off animations, charging sound, optimized RAM consumption, 5×3 layout option, Mi AI machine learning program, face unlocking and much more (visit the source at the end of the article to learn more).Being released by the European team, the ROM does also feature lots of EU languages, while still keeping the original Mandarin and English languages.Anybody can install the Xiaomi EU MIUI 10 ROM but we only suggest doing it to power users, as there’s always a risk of damaging the device in the flashing process.
You’re not the only one worried about how much time you’re spending on Facebook.The social media giant is, according to TechCrunch, working on a time-tracking tool designed to let users know how long they spend on Facebook.The “Your Time on Facebook” tool, found in Facebook’s Android app by Jane Manchun Wong, gives you a summary of the time spent on Facebook in the last seven days.You’ll see the time spent for each day, along with your average for the week.The tool will also let you set your own time limits, and provide you with reminders as you creep closer and closer to your limit.If this all sounds familiar, it’s because everyone is getting on board the health-and-wellness train.
Bumble has already suggested they’d be open to partnering up with Facebook, while Tinder has expressed pleasure at the announcement — arguing it will help to end online dating stigma.But can Facebook offer anything that Tinder or Bumble — which both use Facebook data — can’t?The sheer amount of information Facebook has on us could make it a great place to find a partner.As well as knowing our friends, family and others (as any app using Facebook data would) — it also knows how much we interact with those users, the ones we talk to and who we tag the most.An argument for ‘yes’ comes from the fact that evidence (and often anecdote) would suggest we are not entirely honest on our dating profiles.Christian Rudder, one of the three founders of OKCupid, demonstrated our dishonesty in his book Dataclysm.

If you have not already understood that it is best to use a real password on the Iphone instead of a short code on four or six digits may security researcher Matthew Hickeys new discovery can help you realize the seriousness.In the common case you can't guess the passcode to the Iphone more than a few times before the system puts a stop and makes waiting time between attempts extremely long.A setting can also make ten failed attempts will erase all the Far, techniques to circumvent this protection using hardware that Graykey, but Matthew Hickey has discovered a much simpler tricks, reports Zdnet.When the Iphone and the Ipad are connected to the computer and receives an incoming input from a keyboard, it will take care of the entry entirely before it goes on to the next chore.By manipulating the tangentbordssignalen to send a list of all the possible passcodes, the system can be fooled to test all of these and thereby circumvent the whole protection.
