Back to the ... drawing board: 'Hoverboard' will disappoint Marty McFly wannabes

amanfromearth

Pointless

It's just a floaty thing with very little in common with a skateboard. There's no way to control the direction what with no friction and all.

I'd guess most would be fed up of it a long time before the 7 minute battery is flat, assuming they haven't been carted off to casualty already.

How fast?

I admit to being not up to date on quantum research, but have they yet measured how fast the entangled electron changes state?

And if they have, is it < c ?

Re: ipad review?

Have it on ipad2and it's fine.

Strangely, changing the wallpaper takes at least 30 seconds while it does something, but this is hardly a serious problem.

Otherwise, up and running with no issues.

Re: Affordability my arse

That aside, it looks like Apple have lost their mojo. Jobs would not have sanctioned this product lineup. Where is the insanely greatness in in anything released since his passing.

Sorry apple, you are just too slow to innovate and lack imagination.

RIP Steve.

SR-71

You connected the development of the SR-71 to the shooting down of Gary Powers in 1960, but the SR-71 project was started in 1958.

At least that's what it says on the info board at Duxford. Well worth a tripto see it in the flesh actually . There's also a B-52.
