Real Madrid soccer star Ronaldo was doing some gadget modeling for BenQMobile who sponsored the Real Madrid team. Apparently he did not get paid yet and BenQ mobile is bankrupt.
Real Madrid has still to play with BenQ Mobile shirts until July. BenQ Mobile owes about 1.2 billon Euros (~$1.6 billon) to about 4,000 entities (mostly former employees). Ronaldo is one of creditors. His lawyer hopes to get 20% of the money owed from Ronaldo’s mobile phone endorsement contract.
I am sure Ronaldo will survive without the BenQ mobile money, others are not so lucky. More details on Bild (German).
The pressure on BenQ mounts that they will have to cover for the losses of their mobile unit. More details on the latest developments around the BenQ mobile bankruptcy on PC World.

How to Stop iPhone 6 From Wobbling on a Table
The iPhone 6 has one big flaw. Its backside. The camera sticks out and don't get me started on these ugly antenna lines. The protruding camera lens makes the iPhone 6 wobble when put down flat on a table. Here is how to fix this without a case.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
