Darius Allen is the founder and CEO of Siam Smartphone and has an ambitious goal. Allen, a serial entrepreneur, is bringing the first dual-screen smartphone to the North American mobile market.[Related: East Coast vs. West Coast: It Matters When Pitching Your Business to Investors]Established phone manufacturers have offered dual-screen smartphones. However, they’ve typically built the second screen with a hard-to-access clamshell design.Allen’s phone, instead, puts the second screen on the back of the device. It’s a similar design to the YotaPhone, which also has front and back screens. However, the YotaPhone did not find much success in the U.S. market and is targeted mostly to Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.(Image: Siamsmartphone.com)The Siam 7X phone features an E-Ink display screen on the back panel in addition to the 4.7-inch HD display on the front.The back screen is multifunctional. It can serve as an e-reader in the same way as a Kindle, but it also can be customized with wallpapers; and supports widgets, notifications, and social feeds.The front display is a 5-inch touchscreen. The Siam 7X has two SIM card slots for two phone numbers on the same phone (personal and business) and one of the SIM slots can also be used to expand memory with an SD card. The phone also employs an innovative security-unlocking program thatÂ uses a unique ear configuration to unlock, as opposed to entering numbers or swiping.Additionally, it has an infrared eye that can control most Internet-connected devices such as TVs, stereos, air conditioners and more. It can also be used as a remote control. The Siam phone is a GSM carrier phone which means only AT&T and T-Mobile service can be used.One of six siblings, Allen is a graduate of the University of Auburn School of Business, where he also participated in NCAA Division I football and graduated with a degree in information systems management.The 36-year old businessman has not only launched the Siam phone, he is also the founder of CRBT Inc., a mobile advertising solution that utilizes caller ringtones by replacing the ring with an advertising solution.Allen is also one of the few tech entrepreneurs of color to launch a startup offering tech hardware. There are many barriers for developing hardware, including manufacturing and testing costs. Currently, Allen’s phones are manufactured in Shenzhen, a well-known contract manufacturing center in China.The Siam 7X is currently shippingÂ for $449 and is available in black or white. It comes with a lifetime warranty and accidental coverage. 7 Business Grants to Help Women Business Owners…Celebrity Stylist Olori Swank Creates Unique Co…Brandon P.

Melvin Gregg, who is known for his role on the Netflix show “American Vandal,” is our co-host and creative director,” continued Rogers. “He will be joined by Brittany Lucio, who is an actress and former Miss USA contestant; DJ Damage, co-host of “REVOLT Live” on Sean P. Diddy Combs’ REVOLT TV network; Jessica Flores, social media personality; and Dariany Santana, who is a TV host and actress.”The launch of TriviaMob sits at the intersection of two trends across culture and tech: 73% of African Americans and 72% of U.S. Latinos aged 13 and older identify as gamers, compared to 66% of the total population, according to Nielsen. Additionally, African Americans and Latinos both view their mobile phone as a primary source of entertainment. TriviaMob is currently available on the Apple store and will be released for Android in the coming weeks. If you’re interested in partaking in the festivities, click here and sign up for the next go-round. Mobile trivia games have become a fan favorite, and now there is a new one on the market. TriviaMob, a live game show app, allows players to face off in two separate “mobs,” where they answer questions about art, science, entertainment, and more to win prizes. The platform was created by Cedric Rogers and Shawn Newsum, the co-founders of Culture Genesis, the company behind the trivia game. “The live stream kicks off every Sunday at 9 p.m. (EST) and 6 p.m. (PST) with two hosts leading separate mobs and asking the same trivia questions at the same time,” said Rogers. “The mob that gets a higher percentage of correct questions gets to select the category for the next question. Audiences will be answering questions about art, history, entertainment, science, and other topics. Players who answer all 10 questions correctly split a cash prize, while the winning mob receives mob points they can redeem for sponsored prizes.”User Interface (Image: TriviaMob) “Black Card Revoked”: The TV Game ShowFirst Grader Zora Ball Becomes Youngest Person …Calling All Black Nerds: Blerd City Con is Comi…

The New York Times released its College Access Index rankings. Photo via iStock/janniswernerA study by the Equality of Opportunity Project released earlier this year showed that in Boston, the college-going 1 percent aren’t all where you might expect them to be. But which local schools have the most economically diverse student bodies, rather than just a concentration of the fabulously well-to-do?The New York Times released its third-annual College Access Index, a ranking of 171 colleges with a five-year graduation rate of at least 75 percent, based on their commitment to economic diversity. This ranking takes into account the number of lower- and middle-income students enrolled at the college, as well as the price it charges them to attend.Despite its patrician reputation and gargantuan endowment, Harvard was ranked the most economically diverse school in the Greater Boston area and 10th-most overall, charging middle-income students—that is, those from households earning between $48,000 and $75,000 a year and qualifying for federal financial aid—just $5,000 for tuition, fees, room, and board. MIT ranked 24th, charging middle-income students $9,000.But there’s a precipitous drop-off after the two academic titans of Cambridge. Tufts University is next at 83rd, followed by Boston College (116th), Babson College (120th), Northeastern University (137th), and Boston University (147th.) Emerson College was ranked the least economically diverse college, private or public, of the Greater Boston schools included in the Times‘ list, and third-least of the 171 colleges nationwide, behind Puget Sound and the University of Puget Sound.Amherst College was ranked the most economically diverse private college in the country, and seventh-most overall. (The University of California dominated the top five spots, followed by the University of Florida.) In fact, Massachusetts liberal arts colleges maintained a strong presence in the top 50: Williams College (12th), Wellesley College (14th), and Smith College (5oth).You can check out the full Times ranking here.

The latest on the city’s restaurants scene.* Chef Michael Scelfo at Alden & Harlow. / Photo by Kristin Teig.An iconic Harvard Square establishment will be reborn under a new leader in the neighborhood: Chef Michael Scelfo will open a third concept in the longtime home of Algiers Café. The newest venture, Longfellow, is located above Scelfo’s first and flagship restaurant, Alden & Harlow.For more than 55 years, Emile Durzi ran the Middle Eastern coffeehouse, and transferred management of Algiers to different operators late last fall. Prior to opening Alden & Harlow in 2014, Scelfo was executive chef at Russell House Tavern. He also helped open Naco Taco, in Central Square.“I’m closing in on my 10th year working in restaurants here in Harvard Square,” Scelfo says in a press release. “It has been a thrill to be a part of this neighborhood’s growth. We’re sad to see Emile and his team close their doors, but hope to pay homage to Algiers’ 57-year legacy with this new venture.”No further details on the new concept are currently available, but a Scelfo rep says there’s no relation to the startup Longfellows Coffee that opened on Broadway last fall. American architect Alexander Wadsworth Longfellow Jr., a nephew of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, was the third partner in the firm Longfellow, Alden & Harlow, which designed the historic Brattle Hall at 40 Brattle St.Both Alden & Harlow and Scelfo’s latest, Waypoint, are strongly influenced by local, seasonal produce, and both have excellent cocktail and wine programs led by Seth Freidus and Jen Fields.A&H landed among Bon Appetit’s Best New Restaurants in 2014, was nominated as a James Beard Award semifinalist Best New Restaurant, and earned Scelfo a Best Chef: Northeast nod in 2016. It’s the reigning Best of Boston restaurant for general excellence, and is among the best restaurants in the world, according to Conde Nast Traveler.Waypoint landed on Boston magazine’s Top New Restaurants list just after it debuted in 2016, and is a Restaurant of the Year for 2017, per Food & Wine.Algiers will shutter in August, Scelfo says.

Sure, there’s no screeching Green Line in the ‘burbs, but on a good day (or a really good day, we suppose) the drive from Weymouth to Boston takes about 30 minutes.This cabin for sale on Weymouth’s Whitman Pond could be the cottage Rat City dwellers dream about. It just needs a little TLC.Situated on a dead-end street, the circa 1908 Cape is listed for $228 per square foot—not bad for a waterfront property just outside of Boston. Inside, there are two fireplaces—one with a mantel and built-ins—as well as three bedrooms and a good-sized kitchen. Sliding glass doors in the living room open to the back deck overlooking the pond.The home is indeed small at 1,314 square feet, but that saves time on those necessary extensive renovations, right? Plus, the property offers wide-open space in the form of a pond, where the cottage’s new owners can swim, boat, or canoe just feet from the back deck.For information, contact Jonathan Mathews, Keller Williams Realty, kw.com.Photo via Keller Williams RealtyPhoto via Keller Williams RealtyPhoto via Keller Williams RealtyPhoto via Keller Williams RealtyPhoto via Keller Williams RealtyPhoto via Keller Williams RealtyThe Boston Home team has curated a list of the best home design and home remodeling professionals in Boston, including home builders and contractors, building supplies, custom woodworking, custom closets, heating and cooling, kitchen and bath experts, and more.

He only played 11 games for the Cleveland Cavaliers this past season as the franchise sought to find a new home for the veteran guard.In the meantime, Smith was back in his home state of New Jersey on Wednesday playing golf at Pine Valley Golf Club for the first time ever with his brother, former NBA player Chris Smith, and former NFL wide receiver Freddie Mitchell.After the round, the former NBA Sixth Man of the Year went off in the Pine Valley pro shop. From quarter-zips to polos to tee shirts to bucket hats and everything in between, Smith stocked up on pretty much every item possible.
