SummaryReviewer Nathalie DuboisReview Date2018-11-11 17:10:30Reviewed Item 14 Glitter Design Hair Clips Grips Slides Snap on ClipsRating 3.3 / 5 stars, based on 19 reviews If youre looking for a clip for your little one to go to nursery, or to wear about the house if they’re regularly lost, then you may find these fit for purpose. They are on the flimsy side, regular use may see them break. The colours are as pictured and the dotty design makes them look a little on the cheap side, as does their flat construction. If youre after something pretty, or good quality, these arent for you, but if you want something where your child is goung through a phase if losing them every day and you dont want to spend much, then this is an option. Pretty sparkley clips for a little girl – very nice. Have bought these 4 times now over a long period of time ie several years. I wear them for work to keep my hair out my eyes and i have long hair in a ponytail. So this means i clip the top of my hair back from my face and use 2 clips on each side at the top. The clips are durable and hold things where they should be. Also they are nice and colourful and have a lovely glitter effect. For the price they are good but in themselved they are an excellent hair clip. I work long shifts and i am out in all weathers , they survive hats going on and off and they still stay in place. Great product and lovely colours. The clips snap shut very well but aren’t too tight. These clips don’t hold more than a few strands of hair – they don’t hold the hair in place very well at all as they don’t snap together tightly enough. They are pretty but don’t work. Just as described , good size , nice selection of colours. Brilliant, thank you so much. . Lot of different colours with glittery effect. Very average, but fit for purposeDon’t work I’m afraidjust as expected , good size14 Glitter Design Hair Clips Grips Slides Snap on ClipsAssorted colours per cardApprox 5cm longIdeal for party bagsNot suitable for children under 3 Posted on November 11, 2018Author Nathalie DuboisCategories Clips & BarrettesTags ICB
Alongside the launch of the Rs 35,999 Mi Mix 2 (review) in India on Tuesday, Xiaomi also announced a new pair of in-ear headphones, the Mi Noise Cancelling Earphones USB Type-C, which is priced at Rs 2,999. As the name suggests, the earphones comes with Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) to keep out external noise for a pure listening experience.The Mi Noise Cancelling Earphones has a USB Type-C connector that looks to work with Xiaomi smartphones that have recently started dropping the 3.5mm headphone jack, such as the Mi Mix 2. It is also designed for phones like Mi 6 and Mi Note 2, but the smartphones never made it to the country. The earphones will also be future-ready for upcoming Xiaomi smartphones that will look to sport a USB Type-C port.In terms of design, the Mi Noise Cancelling Earphones USB Type-C sports a metallic body and iron acoustic architecture. The in-ear headphones are also pretty durable and are sand-proof and water-resistant to a certain point. They feature in-line controls that will allow you to answer calls and control the volume level.The in-ear headphones are designed to suppress extraneous noise above 25dB, which makes it ideal to use when travelling by subway, trains, airplanes, among other things. The headphones have an acoustic impedance of 320hm, a sensitivity of 113dB/mW and can reproduce frequencies from 50Hz to 40000Hz. The Noise Cancelling Earphones uses micro-electromechanical noise reduction microphone module to block external noise, and the cable is made up of TPE that is non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and heat-resistant.advertisementAlso Read: Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 with 5.99-inch bezel-less display, Snapdragon 835 & 6GB RAM launched at Rs 35,999The Mi Noise Cancelling Earphones will be available in Black and White colour options and should be available on Mi.com, although the headphones are yet to be listed.

zoom The cyber attack that hit Danish-based A.P. Moller – Maersk on June 27 is expected to damage the company’s business performance by up to USD 300-million in the upcoming quarter.“Business volumes were negatively affected for a couple of weeks in July and as a consequence, our Q3 results will be impacted. We expect the cyber-attack will impact results negatively by USD 200-300 million,” Maersk group’s CEO Søren Skou said.The vast majority of the impact of the cyber-attack was in Maersk Line, according to the group, with a huge blow on July revenue.Maersk was one of many global companies to be hit by a malware later known as NotPetya, distributed through a Ukrainian accounting software called MeDoc, which is used for filing tax returns in Ukraine.The MeDoc software contained backdoors into the networks of users of the software, which were used by the malware to enter via the software’s automatic update system.As a result, Maersk shut down infected networks to contain the impact. However, the group’s container related businesses Maersk Line and APM Terminals took a major blow, with the latter being forced to close some of its terminals and divert ships.“These system shutdowns resulted in significant business interruption during the shutdown period, with limited financial impact in Q2, while the impact in Q3 is larger, due to a temporary loss of revenue in July,” Maersk said.Maersk Line, Damco and APM Terminals restored normal operations during the week of 3 July to 9 July.
