Hello. If you’ve read this post, you already know who LeEco is. If you haven’t, well, they’re a Chinese phone company who have beaten Apple to ditching the 3.5mm phone jack.  They’ve released three new smartphones with pretty good specs and they’ve opted for a solitary USB Type-C port, instead and released their own USB-C-powered headphones. That’s all there is to them.

Well…it’s not that simple. You see, I just found out that they’re also making a drive into the electric car market (pun totally intended) too. After throwing cash at Tesla-killer, Faraday Future, and car manufacturer, Aston Martin, they’ve come up with an electric car of their own. Introducing the LeSEE.

I think it looks pretty futuristic. Obviously, still a concept car, it can drive autonomously, and even park itself while listening to voice prompts from its owner, via a smartphone app. It’s got rear suicide doors, as opposed to Tesla Model X’s rear Falcon wings, and Stuff.tv reports that it will make a debut next week, at the Beijing Motor Show.

The vice presidential debate is over and Nigerian Twitter is awash with comments about how smart some of the candidates’ responses were and how some others simply fell hand. Anticipation ahead of the elections is building just as is excitement around the potential usefulness of blockchain technology across various fields. Sadly, some of us may not even get the chance to cast a vote next year.

As far as I can recall, I’ve owned seven phones in the last nine years, four of which forcefully ended up with people who needed them more than I did. Out of the remaining three, I recall handing one down to a younger sibling and disposing another in a waste bag during spring cleaning. I haven’t given much thought to where my current phone will end up when it no longer serves its purpose. Until now.
