Onda V919: The Less Expensive iPad Air Clone with Dual-Boot and Cellular Connectivity

Posted on Updated on

Onda V919Onda V919 is a 9.7 inch tablet from China which looks like the Apple iPad Air, but without the expensive price. Even with the cheaper price, it is actually a well-made tablet with good specifications, according to Phone Arena.

The Onda V919 3G Air only costs C$196.85 (from DX.com), offers 64GB of internal storage, and features 3G cellular data connectivity. Also, it has the capability to dual-boot Android 4.4 KitKat (not Lollipop unfortunately) and Windows 8.1. To switch between the two operating systems, you would only need to press a button.

For comparison, a 16GB iPad Air with WiFi only (no cellular connectivity) is about C$439, and with cellular connectivity is C$579. That’s a pretty big price difference!

Would you consider buying this tablet?

Bloomberg Game Changers

Posted on Updated on

Bloomberg Game ChangersOne weekend a couple of months ago or so, my S.O. and I were looking for something to watch on Netflix and he found this documentary series called Bloomberg Game Changers. The series produced by Bloomberg TV features different business leaders and successful entrepreneurs who “climbed to the top and changed our world” in one way or another. There were a few there that really piqued my interest, namely:

The list above is hyperlinked to the series videos found on the Bloomberg TV website which I highly recommend to watch. The last one on my list above was actually not available at that time on Netflix and I had just watched it while writing this blog post.

It’s pretty cool learning about these people’s lives as told by their peers and colleagues leading up to the success in whatever they had created. Without these people, the world would definitely be significantly different than what it is today. All of them have contributed to making the world and its people more connected in some way. I think that’s something to be thankful for. (Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!)
