10/12/2011, There’s that popular saying, “yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, that’s why we call it the present”. This saying seems to have been taken and embodied by Scott Thrift, an inventor and filmmaker that created m ss ng p eces.

09/15/2011, While ZiiLabs may not be that well known in the tablet market compared to other brands such as Samsung, Motorola, or Apple, they do put out some pretty nice looking reference designs that are aimed at OEMs who may want to get in on the tablet game but don’t want to spend time coming up with an entirely new design from scratch.
