ZTE Unveils Blade D6 for Select Markets and Dabbles in Home Automation

At last week’s Mobile World Congress Shanghai, ZTE unveiled a new Blade handset that has an uncanny resemblance to iPhone 6. Not withstanding the ‘copy’, we kind of like its look, though we can’t say the same for the specs. It is obviously not a flagship. In fact, the Blade line has never been a flagship. Equipped with a 5-inch HD display and powered by 1.3GHz quad-core chip with 2GB RAM, Blade D6 has a profile that rivals that of the iPhone 6, measuring just 6.95 mm thin. It also touts a sleek 6013 aluminum alloy body, giving it a high-end aesthetic. Continue reading ZTE Unveils Blade D6 for Select Markets and Dabbles in Home Automation

Here’s a Knife Block That is Worthy of Any Contemporary Kitchen Setup

We don’t need to tell you why kitchen knives need to be stored in a block, that’s a no brainer but do you know that nasty bacteria might be lurking in those slots. So, yes. Not only does wooden knife block looks a tad too conventional (more like bland, really), it also has some untold nasties calling it home. Just maybe. Our take is, why take the risk of having foreign microorganism living along side the knives when you don’t have to? Perhaps by sheathing the knives in this Black Diamond Knife Block by Edge of Belgravia? One look and you know right away why; it does not have deep slots that could encourage the growth of potential nasties.

While modern mobile phone may not surpass the tech of the fictional Star Trek Communicator, it is nevertheless an achievement of mankind.
