Xiaomi goes all in on creating their stunning phones by pursuing a minimal bezel design. That is the first thing that strikes you about the new Mi Mix 2. Especially the top bezel – having the image almost appear to lap over the edge is impressive. The sides are only off by a 1mm or so and the bottom has about a 4mm black area which houses the phone’s camera.

Elon Musk continues to set the bar high for everyone and everything that is remotely related to technology industries. His personal vision of how he would like the sequences of things to play out on the global stage is inspiring. He has impacted and disrupted numerous social norms, companies, and industries.

I liked BattleTech back then – it was simple and straightforward. It seems that Piranha is of the same thought recently. They appear to be returning back to the roots of the genre by possibly including a single [...]
All the bitcoin millionaires out there are going to be upset. Valve has announced that it will no longer accept payment via bitcoins for its Steam gaming network. The company is stating that the “high fees and volatility” of the cryptocurrency is responsible for their decision.
When Valve introduced the bitcoin payment method associated fees were around $0.20 per transaction. As of now they hover around $20 per transaction. Those fees have to be absorbed by someone. More times often than not they are passed on to the player. This has caused the demand to significantly drop.
