Not a "free fall"
Since he had a drogue (or stabilisation "chute" as someone else has called it). Felix's record still stands since he did it without a drogue and truly free-fell.
Still, damn fine effort.
Not necessarily businesses
I store a lot of digital video in the cloud, well over 1TBs worth. Not a Bitcasa customer though

He said Jehovah!
Isn't this just...
poking by another name?
Fortunately, The Register suffered no such outage...
Is this the sort of tech that could make a car appear invisible (displaying what is seen on the other side of the car) if fitted on the doors rather than the bonnet (hood)?
Re: Fine for breaking the Law in the national Park
It's just the front case with a clear screen that you can see right through, hence you can see the fingers of the woman holding the iPhone and the case side by side. There's someone bending over behind it that you can see through the screen and to the side. Took me a while to see it.
now we are crashing our rubbish into the surface of the moon as well?
What will the enivronmental (for what it's worth) "impact" (ho ho) be?
Seriously? Just go out for a run at lunchtime. Far more effective and less disruptive on everyone's work. Plus the fresh air and change of scene will do you good.

Whereas, the Vale of Belvoir (in Nottinghamshire/Leicestershire) is actually pronounced beaver!
Where is the obligatory...

Chris O'Dowd...is now a bona fide Hollywood star?
But has he actually done anything good? Given the number of people from over here, performing over there, as one of them, his has to be the worst accent.
Even over here he's rubbish e.g. Moone Boy, although that might have more to do with Sky than O'Dowd.
It's been down hill since The I.T. Crowd as far as I'm concerned.
And what is the name of the timepiece itself?
Re: The kids won't use it??? WTF
"Also, you need to get your loyalty card out when at the till (or so they want) so you'll be in your wallet purse anyway."
Not necessarily. Tesco's do a loyalty card app where the barcode is displayed on the screen for scanning.
Re: Why does it have to be in a phone?
I'm incredibly jealous...
and to prove it I have two words to say after watching the demonstration video on the website:
"inundayded" and "cudding" :-P
Re: You lost me at...

Like on The Undateables, when a chaperone goes along with them...
I, for one,

I don't want to seem ungrateful but...
the picture is "wonky" and it aggravates my OCD.
Been able to do this for years. Still seems to have the time delay lag as well. Why can't it be real time?
Re: Password protect it and you don't get it back.
You stuck a label with your mobile phone number....on the back of your mobile?
Might not go down well with your mates who are getting repeatedly repainted. A bit like a ballistic game of pass the parcel
They really should...lock that rooftop door
So did the GoPro (or at least the SD card). You don't hear them crowing about it though!
It looks like he's got the earpiece cradled towards the crook (and conversely the microphone towards the "wrist") so even if he could comfortably raise his left forearm to his right ear, the phone would be "upside down". Unless he just cradled it that way for the pictures. Is the form factor symetric?
Menial? More like manual!
Sometimes skydivers land off of the intended area and a phone is handy to arrange a pick up or help in the unlikely event of injury. He was probably playing Angry Birds on the way up. Or texting. Skydiving aircraft are generally a little less sophisticated than commercial jets so having a phone on is not so much of an issue. Also probably too lazy to switch it off/to aircraft mode each time.
I was supposed to be able to get it 31st March, then that was pushed back to 31st July. I've just checked again and it's been pushed back to 31st September. Hmm, wonder how much faith I have in that!
T-Mobile also for the ChaCha
From the Bonhams pages,
"Operational apparatus including:
A Domino 625/405-line standards convertor;
A Home-made modulator with leads, contained within metal OXO tin chassis;
A modern Freeview set-top box;
And a small quantity of valves and some components, mostly boxed, but limited use for this set."
1936 RTFM equivalent
From the manual:
"A few minutes devoted to careful study of these instructions before an attempt is made to operate the instrument will be amply repaid by the consequent ease of adjustment."
The Google cache version lists JungleCreative as the developers of the website. JungleCreative's website says Ray Nimmo is the guy behind it. Might be worth contacting him :-) (He's getting his coat)
And wingsuiting skydivers also
