Comment: Human *FLESH* Search is correct! (Score 1) 109

No, "flesh" is NOT a racist typo! That is the direct translation of the actual Chinese phrase "ren rou sou suo".

ren rou: human flesh
sou suo: search

The idea is simply to leverage on the wide viewership of Internet communities (i.e.g forums and BBSes) to search or identify the actual "human flesh" responsible for the atrocities depicted in viral videos.

While pro-grade multicopters like those to be deployed by Amazon operate at 2.4GHz, they do not use WiFi as their radio system! Typically, these multicopters are fitted radio systems such as Futaba, JR, Spektrum or 9X, and therefore Skyjack will not be able to take them down.

Not only that the price is expensive after factoring in the shipping charges, this tablet is MIPS-based, so it will have a very limited Android Market. Take note!

The tablet to get is actually Ainol Novo 7 Advanced, not the Novo 7 Basic stated in the article. The 7A has a much better hardware. It is widely believed that the Novo7A will get ICS real soon as there are videos of it running ICS circulating in the chinese forums.

I have this cool router and I must say, it's really the best deal out there! I paid peanuts for this router. What I truly love about it is that it has a USB port. After installing OpenWRT and the required packages, I turned this router into a mini home server. The USB port allowed me to connect a flash storage device which acts as data storage as well as swap for the router.

By the way, avoid trying DD-WRT on this router. It is unpolished.
