honor 30 pro plus review rear in hand

  • Huawei is reportedly in talks to sell off parts of its Honor unit.
  • It’s believed that Digital China, TCL, and Xiaomi are interested in the deal.

US sanctions against Huawei mean that the company’s smartphone business has suffered in a big way. Between its crippled in-house chipset division and the lack of Google support, it’s becoming increasingly tough for the firm to keep producing phones.

These troubles extend to its Honor sub-brand too, but Reuters now reports that Huawei is in talks to sell off parts of the Honor business in a deal potentially worth up to 25 billion yuan (~$3.7 billion).

The report, citing “people with knowledge of the matter,” alleges that Honor’s brand, research and development infrastructure, and associated supply chain management business could be sold under the deal. However, the newswire’s sources caution that this hasn’t been finalized yet.

It’s believed that Huawei will focus on higher-end

Sneha Priya’s mantra to introduce any technology is simple: the right exposure at the right age. “It must not be the other way around—just making it compulsory for the kids,” says cofounder of SP Robotic Works. Decoding the hysteria around coding for children in India, Priya concedes that the way it (coding) is being communicated to the parents, and the kind of FOMO being created, is probably not going in the right direction. “But if a kid embraces coding, it will be useful for her future,” she says. 

Started in 2012 by Pranavan and Sneha Priya, SP Robotic Works is an online edutainment company that specialises in providing experiential learning to students between the ages of 7 and 17, in latest technologies such as robotics, coding, drone, AI, VR and IoT. The idea is to promote STEM education (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) through

When you are starting a side hustle, one of the most important things you can do for your business is market. But marketing can get pretty out of control if not planned strategically. The first thing you need to do is make sure your marketing is synergistic with your sales plan. 

Years ago, I worked for an ad agency in San Diego. Out of the blue someone called our office and asked to speak to the media buyer – which was me. I answered the call and it was a local plumber, who serviced commercial buildings and businesses. He wanted to know if we could create an ad for his business to shine on the side of building at night – because he saw this done in Las Vegas the weekend before and thought it was clever. 

So I asked him, “This particular ad would only be seen during evening

A side hustle is defined as doing something on the side – which means that you’ll be juggling your other life responsibilities. So one of the best things you can do for yourself and your business is to automate, define systems and standard operations that can easily run without your constant attention. Any task that you repeat should be automated so that you can free up your time and attention. Anything that is vital to the health of the business needs to be systematized so that it can be repeated by others you may bring on down the road. 

One of my favorite business books, “eMyth Revisited” by Michael Gerber is a fantastic book on why you need to create systems and how to do it successfully. He also details out the pitfalls and burnout that can occur by not creating systems. If you are a new entrepreneur, it’s hard

Microsoft has released new “hybrid workplace” guidance that lays out how employees can have a more flexible remote work schedule and even relocate elsewhere in the country as the tech giant continues to adjust to changing needs during the ongoing pandemic.

The Verge first reported on the internal messaging Friday, saying that Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft will allow employees to work from home freely for less than 50 percent of their working week, and managers will be able to approve permanent remote work.

Developers have to add another tool to their arsenal in order to keep up with the ever-changing times. Search engine optimization (SEO) is more important than ever now as more consumers are home and are turning to online businesses. Being able to find, and easily and quickly navigate through a website can make or break a business. 

“At its core, SEO is working on your site to help site rank better in Google or Bing….This can help get more users to click on the site when they’re searching,” James Leisy, senior technical SEO at DeepCrawl, said in a webinar on SD Times. 

While there are a number of different ways users can stumble upon a website, Leisy explained 53% of all trackable web traffic comes from organic search. If the website doesn’t behave properly or is too slow, it can damage a company’s direct revenue and even it’s brand

Bridgeport zoo part of effort to save species

BRIDGEPORT — Traveling to look for love is no longer a possibility for many people in these times of pandemic-induced lockdown. But, apparently, it’s still an option for tigers.

Animal care specialist Chris Baker and Zeya, one of two Amur tigers at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo, in Bridgeport, Conn. Sept. 29, 2020. Zeya is scheduled to leave the zoo Tuesday to be moved to another facility for breeding purposes.


Zeya, one of Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo’s two Amur tigers, was scheduled to spend her last day at the zoo Monday before being moved to another facility Tuesday for breeding purposes. Beardsley Director Gregg Dancho couldn’t say where Zeya was moving, because the other zoo hasn’t released permission to share that information.

Michael Pegues, a relative newcomer to government, is the CIO of the second largest city in Illinois. Despite only being in the job for three years and having no background in local government, he has developed a passion for city work and has become an urbantech champion.

What makes Pegues’ case so interesting is that he has taken a much bolder approach to encouraging innovation than many other city CIOs. In my experience, cities often set up limited innovation zones where they experiment with technologies before rolling them out more widely. Pegues has eschewed this intermediate step and turned his city into one giant innovation sandbox through his 605 Innovation District project (605 being the first three digits of the five zip codes in Aurora).

It’s a bold move—and one that isn’t without risks. But the initiative shows how a forward-thinking CIO willing to embrace and successfully manage those

Officials with CISA, the cybersecurity arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, said that “at this point we have no indication of a broader coordinated campaign.”
