Graphics cards, more specifically Nvidia's Cryptocurrency Mining Processor (CMP), are the new commodity among Chinese smugglers. TVB News reported that the Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department busted a smuggling ring and recovered up to 300 CMP 30HX graphics cards. The story seems like it came out of a movie. The Chinese authorities detected a suspicious fishing boat anchored just outside the Hong Kong International Airport. The sea smugglers were loading boxes from the fishing boat to a speedboat at 2 am. When their cover was blown, the shady men hopped on the speedboat and sped away towards mainland waters. A high-speed boat chase ensued (insert Bourne chase music), but the astute gang got away. However, the officers managed to detain the owner of the fishing boat. The confiscated goods included typical exotic foods, such as sea cucumbers and shark fins, and tech products, like smartphones and computer gadgets.

Toothpaste tablets have gained popularity over recent years. Essentially, they are a toothpaste formula that’s made without water and pressed into a disc-like form. But how do toothpaste tablets work? Simply pop a tablet into your mouth, chew it up, and let your saliva (or a sip of water) turn it into a paste. You can either brush that paste onto your teeth with a wet toothbrush or, if one isn’t available, you can use your tongue or finger in a pinch.
