MIT Technology Review is a magazine wholly owned by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, but editorially independent of the university. It was founded in 1899 as The Technology Review, and was re-launched without "The" in its name on April 23, 1998 under then publisher R. Bruce Journey. In September 2005, it underwent another transition under its then editor-in-chief and publisher, Jason Pontin, to a form resembling the historical magazine.

    Xiaomi is finally adding an app drawer to MIUI

    Xiaomi's MIUI continues to be one of the most popular custom ROMs, with over 250 million users across the globe. While Xiaomi has added a lot of features to the ROM over the last two years, a key omission has been the app drawer. It was particularly frustrating to see that the POCO Launcher had an app drawer, while most MIUI users had to resort to using a third-party launcher to access the same. However, it looks like Xiaomi is finally set to add the app drawer into MIUI. According to screenshots received by the folks over at XDA, MIUI build 4.10.6.1025-06141703 comes with the option to switch to an app drawer, with a dedicated button at the middle of the dock allowing users to pull up the drawer.
