This is the newest Chinese drone. It seems much more advanced than what anyone imagined. Apparently, Bruce Wayne is now working for the Chinese military, which is hard at work trying to match America's drone-army. They're getting close.
And who says classical music is irrelevant in this day and age (besides me)? As a warm up to their choral season, the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra requested its listeners tweet their advice for staying toasty during the winter months. It then assembled the best tweets and set them to O Fortuna. This is actually pretty awesome. [Geekosystem]
Microsoft's Major Nelson aka Larry Hryb the Director of Programming for Xbox Live just tweeted that the new Metro-inspired dashboard update for the Xbox 360 has been "slightly delayed." He'll have a status update on what that means for you "later today". Sit tight! [Twitter]
HP just spent millions (presumably, the exact figure isn't out yet) on a German printing software company called Hiflex. At this point, I'm pretty sure HP has reliable intel that we're just months away from a printing-based dystopian economy. Like Waterworld, but with toner.
Got an Android device? Get yourself over to the 10 billion app promotion on the Android Market. Currently there are 10 pretty decent apps all available for just 10p each. Most of the apps are "Editor's Choice" award winners, with highlights including Minecraft - Pocket Edition, Fieldrunners, Great Little War Game, Asphalt 6, SwiftKey X and Sound Hound.
YouTube's published its top 10 list of the most watched videos from the UK. Topping the list is a spoof of our Wills and Kate bounding down the isle, which was produced by T-mobile as part of its 'life is for sharing' advertising campaign.
Another day, another gaming app festooned with zombies. But it has to be said, what an utterly splendid name – Corpse Granny. Say it aloud next time you're in the vicinity of a Daily Mail reader. Give it some gusto, and then innocently show them the app. They might just keel over with indignation.
We saw the Kobo Wi-Fi launch with WH Smith in the UK, but now ASDA has taken the fight to Amazon's Kindle, at least on price. At £67 the Kobo Wi-Fi is £12 cheaper than Amazon's Kindle, although it's both heavier and of questionably lower quality. But if you're looking for a cheap E-Ink-packing reader for Christmas, at £67 you won't find much better for less -- in-store and online come Friday.
On a quest to prove that security measures surrounding nuclear facilities are ill-considered, nine Greenpeace activists broke into a French nuclear power plant and hung a banner that said "HEY" and "EASY" on it. Even after Greenpeace told police about the stunt, it took them several hours to track them down.
So far it's only been field tested in bars in northern Argentina, but I know plenty of remorseful partyers who would love this beer cooling Photoblocker, which promises to stop photos of your evening's antics from showing up on Facebook.
The Allen Telescope Array and the search for alien life is back on, thanks in no small part to the US Air Force. While funding included personal donations from fans, the bulk of the cash for the search for ET has come from USAF Space Command. Point those radio arrays at Kepler-22b boys -- time to find out whether there really are aliens.
FBI Agent Playset -- For Teaching Kids That the Most Important Part of Law Enforcement Involves Beatings and Restraints
It's funny, when I was a kid there was a huge move away from realistic toy guns — and playing "guns" in general. Now apparently the pendulum has swung back: you can buy your kid a 15-plus-inch toy baton and handcuffs for playing "FBI."
It's 1pm. You're still in bed, having already muttered some lame excuse to your boss as to why you aren't in to work today, chugged a litre of water, half a bottle of aspirin, AND TWO GALLONS OF COFFEE, but no dice. When all else fails, this new US FDA-approved cure might help.
Dragging a body any distance is tough enough on land, much less while swimming. And the faster you land that person, the more likely you are to resuscitate him. Unfortunately, most conventional life-saving equipment is either slow moving, like kick-boards, or slow launching, like wave-runners. Hence, the Asap Water Rescue Craft.
Hot contender for Game Of The Year has to be Skyrim -- it’s the game that the phrase ‘time vampire’ was surely made for. Players find that entire days have been lost to it and that their P45s are waiting for them at work, if they ever manage to get back into the real world that is.
