Ideally we should redraw the Scottish border around Downing Street and Westminster then poll for independence. I would love to see that become a separate state
Facebook is down
I suspect all El-Reg reporters are down the pub by now but where is your "OMG Facebook is down! Twitter goes nuts" article?? Unless this is another large scale experiment by Zuckerburg to test how powerful he is & see which media outlets feel the need to report on his company's every sneeze. In which case well played and go back to (*edit) your real life social networking.
Science is always the victim.
I suspect though given the NSA's narrow definition of an ordinary citizen that we can all expect our data to be de-duped to say about 1 pB worth of mince with the remaining non-conformists offered another NSA service that finds them & brings them in for a face to face meeting.You won't find me signing up for love nor money!

Not even George Orwell predicted that people would walk around with cameras attached to their heads
parafoil and stabilty.
The video shows a fully inflated parafoil on the ascent and most of the weather balloon videos ive watched imply payloads will be subjected to rapid spinning.
Silver Foils & portable digital scales?
The only thing missing is a wad of cash & a way to discretely distribute the drugs around europe. Oh wait!
I suspect there are people who doubt he actually "landed" that punch.
I'd hate to see what happens when they try more than 10 degrees of bank on this aircraft.
I suspect when they run this past their aeronautical engineers the wings will be forced into a dihedral shape, the surface area will have to be increased, a larger vertical stabilizer with a boom or extended body for the elevators and hey presto it becomes a ...oh!

@ Mystic Megabyte
You remind me of my old physics teacher once wrote a similar quip "Carrots per second?" against one of my answers in a test paper. I resubmitted my test paper with a note declaring that anyone marking this should have been contextually aware and clearly this comment was written by a buffoon who was not in the same frame of reference.
My test score did not change. :( Spooky cause I knew that was coming.
Bubble is beginning to burst
Much like the economic recovery, the universe is a big bubble and what we are seeing is the intergalactic equivalent of a bursting bubble. I recon we should prepare a mix of fairy liquid, water, epoxy & Uranium 235 and launch an intergenerational mission to repair the burst.
Re: 10,000 tons
at 17meters long it is conceivable to be around 10,000 tons.
It would have to be very hollow to be only just 10 tons.
Perhaps we should launch some sort of gravity probe with several high speed gyroscopes to determine & map the differences in Gravity between to places on earth.
We then should take these results and combine these with altitude & air pressure measurements to determine if the variance is due to these environmental factors.
Point in case.
That's up there with headlines such as.
"Woman awarded OBE for her contribution to 'driving efficiently'"
"Husband finds out wife's credit card transactions were for 'very useful items'"
"Angela Merkel returns from Greek holiday to find Germany has left the Euro"
"Cops cuff woman for speeding in her tractor- she admits "trying to get home so her man wouldn't find the fridge was empty""
Re: hardware compatibility
It's ironic then that they are owned by a storage company
I heard that digital cinemas were using this technology as much as 5 years ago to embed meta information into every film shown. This is later used to track pirated films & identify crimbos.

Imagine the rebuild time on that drive.
HP stretching the truth?
What a scandal.
I think news international should employ spies to get to the hard facts, the HP board would never see them coming.
I'm bored of this discussion.
Re: I'm willing to bet good money
It will, and the title will be "404 Error Page not found"
Could this solve cold fusion? Could we design a meta-material that absorbs hydrogen and fuses them together simply by a series of metafolds releasing untold heat in the process?
Viral video nonsense sponsored by Philips.
Yes that right folks- its CGI augmented with a guy that has a fake facebook profile.
This should help those who think its real.
Plus he's been uploading videos for over a year on this project and his first one was titled 1 of 14.
How did he know he was going to make 14 videos before his first successful flight unless he had a friggin time machine.
I could buy it but would probably end up dumped

I took one thing away from that article!
A quick google of some keywords related to some of googles services doesn't place them at the top of the search results.
However I googled "video sharing" and noticed that youtube isn't listed.
Do they deliberately manipulate their own services?

Put the paper plane inside the balloon!!

I want one but dunno who makes it.
Gotta love Microsoft.
Imagine dragging Dell into this fray in their statement. MR Dell hope your reading this but don't let me pay the same S&H for my Windows 7 upgrade & I'll buy more of your stuff. Or send me a free Alienware or Precision system and I'll happily pay S&H on that.
