by Tom McGregor    Wed, Apr 15, 2015, 09:30 PM

$ 1AAabbbccflower.jpgThe Taiwan government of Taipei believed it could influence the Democrat Party by pledging huge sums of money to the Clinton Foundation. Nonetheless, it was money wasted as the Clinton Foundation banned Taipei from continuing their donations and imposing a blacklist on them.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "The board of the Clinton Foundation said Wednesday night that it will continue accepting donations from foreign governments, but only from six nations, a move that appears aimed at insulating Hillary Rodham Clinton from controversies over the charity's reliance on millions of dollars from abroad as she ramps up her presidential campaign."

1.       Here are the world's first USB Type-C phones from China


Following the Nokia N1, the new Chromebook and the new MacBook, who knew the world's first USB Type-C smartphones would come from a Chinese company?
