Breaking records: Google exec in terrifying SKY PLUNGE DRAMA

CraPo
Headmaster

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.

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)?

Leaked pics show EMBIGGENED iPhone 6 screen

CraPo

@petur

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.

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.

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.

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.

Man builds smartphone dock into arm

CraPo
Terminator

@lockwood

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?

iPhone plunges 13,500 ft from skydiver's pocket - and lives

CraPo
Gimp

@ac 07:27

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.

No guarantee

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!

"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."
