Will the trendy goal of making publicly financed research freely available skew the world of scholarship even more in the direction of the natural sciences?

I don’t think so. But it took me a while to get there. (...) - by Curt Rice, Blog "Thourghts on university leadership", March 27, 2013

Hyundai T7 for less than 180$ beating Nexus 7 on benchmarks! | Big Boys and Their Toys | Scoop.it
The 7 inch Android tablet Hyundai T7 delivers the Exynos 4412 quad-core processor and benchmarks show it's faster than Nexus 7
Filipe MS Bento's insight:

For those of you thinking of buying a “portable” tablet or even a phablet (up to 7”), if you could wait a couple of weeks or so, I'll share a review of it. Just order one of yesterday (one of the 5 lucky guys, wake up at 5am, that got their hands on it for an amazing price of 108€ -- yes, a little bit more than half of Google Nexus 7 also wonderful price [$199 / 199€]) and hope to share a quick review, comparing it ot my GT 10.1 (blazing fast  now, overclocked to 1.4GHz [DC], running a custom ROM (CMod, Android 4.2.2).
Where to buy (my CN e-megamall of trust): http://www.pandawill.com/hyundai-t7-quad-core-tablet-pc-7-inch-ips-screen-exynos-4412-android-40-8gb-gps-bluetooth-dual-camera-hdmi-white-debut-p71301.html
