Many observers of the ongoing demonstrations in Hong Kong have noted how the protests remain extremely well-organized despite lacking centralized leadership. Supplies are well-distributed, rest areas are abundant, and protestors have even coordinated recycling initiatives.

The movement’s efficient logistics are in no small part due to its leaders’ use of internet-enabled technology. But protestors are going beyond Facebook groups, WhatsApp conversations, and Twitter feeds in their efforts.

Code4HK’s today.code4.hk is one of several online hubs where activists aggregate and disseminate information to the Hong Kong public. Inspired by Code for America, Code4HK originated as a group dedicated to solve civic issues. In a blog post from December 2013, Vincent Lau wrote described the organization’s mission as follows:

Technology is one of the few things that stands a chance to fight against monopoly and bureaucracy. Egypt succeed in evolution with the help of social media technology. Startups grow rapidly in Chile or Vietnam changing the landscape. After empty words of “Cyberport” and the dot.com bubble years ago, we need to ask why we didn’t have [a technology revolt in] our lovely Hong Kong. We need to show the possibilities. We need to engage [developers] and every citizen to participate in saving our city. More importantly we need to TRY.

Today.code4.HK Code4HK’s property dedicated solely to the Occupy Central demonstrations. It draws inspiration from g0v, the Hackpad page which activists in Taiwan’s Sunflower Movement used to inform each other and the public about its occupation of the Legislative Yuan (heavy traffic from Taiwan even brought Hackpad down at one point).

The homepage for today.code4.HK contains links to the four most basic resources for demonstrators and the Hong Kong public – a livestream from four TV channels covering the events, a map of local rest stops and supply centers, a Google Doc that’s updated with relevant news (events, police presence, headcount estimates), and a Google Doc that tracks and organizes supply distribution.

Toggling the sidebar lets one access even more livestreams and additional spreadsheets:

A Google Map lists the numerous supply centers and clinics spread throughout the city:

[​IMG]

The Google Document charting supply distribution is startlingly thorough. The page pictured below lays out supply needs for specific districts around the city. Those who update the page are encouraged to indicate the degree of urgency (there’s also a section where users can report an excess of supplies). Below, you’ll see that Admiralty was at one point in dire need of water, sports drinks, and dry foods. There’s even a page that lists all of the public restrooms near the site of the demonstrations.

[​IMG]

Another section lists out a set of apps that demonstrators might find useful, including Twitter, FireChat, and Telegram.

[​IMG]
There’s also a very, very cool interactive timeline powered by TimeMapper that tracks the demonstrations, with links to news articles and Facebook.

We’re in touch with Code4HK and look forward to speaking more with them. In the mean time, go browse through today.code4.hk to get a sense of how online savvy is powering offline mobilization.

We are probably all familiar with the Sony Xperia Z3’s beastly hardware specifications by now. But if you’ve been wondering how Sony packaged that hardware up in such a nice looking frame, then this teardown, courtesy of ewisetech, will be just up your street.

Sony doesn’t offer removable batteries with its Xperia handsets, so the manufacturers have glued the back on to prevent tampering. Once it’s removed, you’ll notice the familiarly large battery seen in most modern handsets, and direct access to the Z3’s inside. Sony has been including dust and water resistance (IP68) as standard with all of its recent flagships, which resulted in this rather refreshing underwater unboxing. In the gallery below, you can see the lengths that Sony gone to in sealing the entire edge of the smartphone with a thin insulating rubber layer.

[​IMG]

Above the battery, the motherboard is held in by a set of screws, which can be easily removed and the whole part can be lifted out. It’s here that you can spot one of the Xperia Z3’s particularly good design features – an integrated heat pipe connected to the SoC to dissipate heat away from the processor and towards the edge of the case. With limited space available for cooling, this heat pipe seems like a very sensible feature to implement. The headphone jack, camera, and the antenna module can also all be removed by a simple set of screws, making any replacements easy to swap out.

[​IMG]

Turning to the mainboard itself, Samsung is providing the memory chips for both internal storage and RAM. The Qualcomm PM8941 is the handset quick-charge component for faster mains charging. Qualcomm is also providing the LTE modem (WTR1625L) and audio codec (WCD9320) for the Xperia Z3, whilst there’s a NXP class D amplifier to power the handset’s speakers. You might also have spotted dual-SIM card slots, which probably means that they’ve taken apart the Z3 Dual handset (D6633). Even so, the rest of the hardware remains the same.

Sony’s successive hardware revisions appeared to have paid off. The insides of the Xperia Z3 seem very well optimised and well thought out. Let’s hope it doesn’t take too long to put it all back together.

The Paranoid Android project is continuing its steady release calendar with PA 4.6 Beta 3, dubbed “Solid Strawberry.” (It looks like PA adopted an Ubuntu-like naming scheme for releases)

Like Paranoid Android 4.6 Beta 2 from last week, Solid Strawberry is focused on bringing some more polish to the marquee features of the PA project, including the Recents interface and the dynamic system bars (DSB), as well as bug fixes.

The main changes concern the DSB icon animation, which received a cleanup, and the ability to dismiss recent apps by tapping anywhere outside of the thumbnails. As with every release, upstream changes to the CyanogenMod Theme Engine have been merged into this latest beta.

Here’s the changelog, as per PA:

  • Clean up DSB icon animations
  • Crop thumbnails of portrait floating windows
  • Dismiss the redesigned recents menu on touches outside of the thumbnails
  • Tweak the design of the volume panel and Pie QS toggles
  • Merge Theme Engine changes by CM.

As always, the latest PA beta release is available for download for modern Nexus devices (including Galaxy Nexus), as well as the OnePlus One and the Find 7. Users of other devices should check the Legacy projects, which are builds for devices that aren’t officially supported by PA.

Protests in Hong Kong intensified on Sunday as young people flooded the streets to demand democracy reform, free from the shackles of mainland China. According to Twitter (NYSE:TWTR), those protests have so far generated over 1.3 million tweets from participants, eyewitnesses, and supporters from around the globe.

As seen in the interactive chart created by Twitter’s number-crunchers (embedded below), things reached a peak around 11:30 PM local time on Sunday as Hong Kong police responded with tear gas to the peaceful crowd of tens of thousands of protestors at several points across the city. That peaked at a flow of 735 tweets per minute related to the Hong Kong protests.

That’s not the most intense Twitter storm ever, but it still shows strong interest in a student-led rally against authorities. Twitter’s record for tweets per minute goes to this year’s World Cup final, which reached a peak of 618,725 tweets a minute.

Today, the pro-democracy protests are entering their fifth night.

Here’s the chart from Twitter:

One of the most popular tweets so far comes from WSJ’s Troy McCullough, who attached a photo of the protestors the morning after picking up trash from the night’s protests.

McCullough also tweeted this remarkable photo from Monday night’s gathering, when the crowds held up their phones in an impressive display of lights and manpower:

The Cubot S168 is a 5-inch phablet launched by the Chinese company. It has been designed for the middle range market, offering good specifications and keeping a reasonable price.

Package

The package, which weighs 0.5 kg, includes the battery, the power adapter, and the USB cable, using both for charging the phone or to exchange data with the PC.

Design

The Cubot S168 is available in two different colors, black and white. This phablet has a total size of 145 x 72 x 8.5 mm (5.7 x 2.8 x 0.3 inches) and it weighs 160 g.

Around the edges, we can find the different ports. On the right side, there are the volume and power controls, while the headphone jack and the micro USB port are located on the top. On the back side, we can find the camera and the flash light.

cubot-4-en

The Cubot S168 has a 5-inch capacitive screen with QHD resolution (960 x 540 pixels). The three capacitive buttons are situated below the display and above the screen there is the earpiece and the front camera.

Performance

cubot-1-en

The Cubot S168 features a Quad Core Cortex A7 MTK6582 processor, running at 1.3 GHz, coupled with an ARM Mali-400 MP GPU. It’s not the best one available, but it’s a good choice to handle a screen with a medium resolution. The consumption of this display is not as demanding of those with higher resolutions, so the performance and the battery life of the device are we perfect for a conventional use of the phablet.

It also includes a RAM memory of 1 GB, and 8 GB of internal memory, expandable up to 32 GB using a TF card, which is not included by default. It packs a battery of 2000 mAh and comes with the last version of Android, 4.4 KitKat.

The sensor mounted on the back camera is able to capture images with a resolution of 8 MP and it also includes a flash light and an autofocus. The front one has a sensor of 5 MP, enough to provide the possibility to record a rather decent selfie. It can also record videos.

The S60 is a dual SIM device that supports 3G and GSM on 850/900/1800/1900MHz and WCDMA on 850/2100MHz. The Wi-Fi connection uses 802.11b/g/n and it also includes a GPS sensor and Bluetooth connectivity.
