The Federal government of Nigeria is moving forward with plans to build the country’s first nuclear reactor as Nigeria and Russia recently signed an inter-Governmental agreement to make this happen by 2025.

As a result, before the end of 2016, all Xiaomi Android smartphones and tablets will be shipped with Microsoft’s and Skype pre-installed.

Mary Meeker’s 2016 Internet trends report was released this week and as usual she’s got the scoop on some interesting tech trends.
