A First Look at Asus Tinker Board

Asus is taking on the Raspberry Pi with its own single-board computer that offers 4K video playback and 24-bit audio support. The "Asus 90MB0QY1-M0EAY0 Tinker Board," or "Tinker Board", has better hardware specifications compared with Raspberry Pi 3.
The new board was released last month but only available in UK and Taiwan initially. Shipment cost is much higher than the board if I were to purchase from UK sellers. Major Taiwan online marketplace only accept credit card from local bank and domestic shipment.

I just found out that this board also available last week at Amazon.com. However, the shipment cost is very high from US to Malaysia. I was not able to find any sellers from Malaysia and Singapore.
However, I was able to get this board from a seller in Taiwan through facebook. Got the board last week!

Congress Allows ISPs to Share Your Private Data Without Permission

The House of Representatives voted Tuesday Mar-28-2017 to repeal Internet privacy protections that were approved by the Federal Communications Commission in the final days of the Obama administration. Under the old rules, internet providers would need to obtain consumer consent before using precise geolocation, financial information, health information, children's information and web browsing history for advertising and marketing. The providers have data on your web browsing history, app usage and geo-location. Providers would also have been required to notify customers about the types of information collected and shared.

By rolling back these regulations, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) now have the legal authority to sell customers’ browsing history and other personal information without their consent. It also releases Internet providers from obligations to increase protections of customer information against hackers and thieves. This ruling will also prevent the FCC from passing any similar rules in the future. The resolution now goes to President Trump's desk. The White House said Tuesday it "strongly supports" the repeal.

Tutorial How To Unblock Geo Restrictions And Watch Chinese Movies From Overseas

Are you in overseas now and want to watch some good Chinese movies? You found one good Chinese movie from your Android application via Xiao Mi box and ready to get entertained. Now you get this screen : Service is not available and can only be viewed in Mainland of China. Frustrated right?

Internet content restrictions called geo-blocking are increasingly being used by China to restrict the access of overseas people wishing to view China movies. The restriction is done based on IPs that are not belongs to Mainland China. Normally we are able to watch China variety shows without any problems. However, overseas IPs are blocked when you want to watch movies from China. This applied to many apps from China. I tried to use a few VPNs and still not able to watch China movies from TV box. Why? Because IP address of these proxy servers are also blocked!

Perhaps there is one solution that you can try. Smart DNS is a method that can unblock China websites and stream region blocked content to your box. Information of your geographical location is rerouted through a DNS server in order for you to unblock content on China websites. Therefore your Internet speed will not be affected. Better still, no need to subscribe Smart DNS services!

In case you are using apps bundle from Mibox or similar TV box, you can try to change DNS to unblock movies through Dangbei or Shafa. There are other methods such as using Engelsiz to change DNS but we will not discuss this for now.
