After all, this is the man that has railed against the intelligence community multiple times.

A new report from the New York Times says Trump is still using his unsafe Android phone.

Netflix adds MicroSD card support for offline downloads for Android users

Netflix first gave Android users the ability to download content to their devices to watch offline at the tail end of November last year, and while being able to watch Stranger Things without needing an internet connection was a great thing, there was one small problem, you could only download to the device’s built-in storage.

ZTE seeks additional vision for Hawkeye device

ZTE decided to try something a little bit different with Project CSX which was meant to be a crowdsourced development activity for a smartphone. Kind of like Boaty McBoatface, ZTE discovered that turning the reins of development over to the public can produce some strange results. The ZTE Hawkeye was such a device, a smartphone in which the top two features as determined by the public would be eye-tracking and an adhesive case to make it a hands-free smartphone. Despite the odd collusion of features, ZTE stuck with the crowdsource development concept and created a Kickstarter campaign for the Hawkeye. After struggling since being posted, ZTE has admitted they made a strategic error with the Hawkeye.
