Xiaomi Mi A1 First Impressions: Google’s Android One Makes a Comeback

The Xiaomi Mi A1 has been launched as the new face of Google’s Android One platform. This will be a crucial device for Xiaomi which has not brought any flagship model to India this year, and also for Google, with none of its previous Android One models delivering either. This new Android One smartphone is Xiaomi’s second global smartphone launch in India, after it debuted the Mi 4i here first back in 2015. The Xiaomi Mi A1 could be part of an all-new series in the company’s lineup, but we strongly believe that will depend on consumer feedback to…

A heady and refreshing melon sorbet recipe

There is a scene in the film The Day of The Jackal when Edward Fox, as the Jackal, an assassin deluxe, corrects the sights on his bespoke rifle to shoot a watermelon. It is his target practice for shooting President Charles de Gaulle (Adrien Cayla-Legrand) and it is a scene to make you shudder (although the president was spared the fate of the watermelon, unlike the would-be assassin). I confess to having an ambivalence towards watermelons – bombastic, blustering great gourds that are all show and no tell. But I do quite like…

A Sicilian recipe for spaghetti with courgette, mint and pecorino

Wild mint grows in the cracks between the steps just behind our house in Gela. So does another vigorous weed that smells a little like cat pee.

Some of the fruit is just not as good when you get it out of season — but Today.com reports Walmart has invented a brand-new fruit to change that.

The goal was to develop a melon that could be grown outside of the typical…

Fashion’s Space Race: Why The Spacesuit Is A Huge Future Branding Opportunity For Designers

The mock rocket launch at Chanel’s fall 2017 Paris Fashion Week show (Photo by Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images) Space travel has long been a source of inspiration to the fashion industry. When the space race between the Soviet Union and the US was underway in the 1960s, it influenced designers including Paco Rabanne, Courrèges and Pierre Cardin into all manner of both sculptural and streamlined looks. High fashion houses since have regularly referenced everything and anything related to the galaxy, the fantasy of its contents and the way in which we…
