airbus patentCompared to driving, flying is much faster and therefore more efficient. However there are aspects about the entire process that could be improved upon. For example after arriving at your gate (and assuming you’re early), you will need to wait to board the plane. When it’s finally your turn, you will have fall in line and also wait for everyone to get on board, put away their luggage, allow flight attendants to do their last minute checks before you are ready to fly.

This has been the way for decades and while we might be used to it, it doesn’t mean we can’t improve on it. That’s pretty much what the folks at Airbus have envisioned. In a recently discovered patent, the planemaker has patented the idea of a plane that can have its cabin detached, as you can see in the diagram above.

o2-storeA couple of days ago, UK carrier EE announced that they were exploring the idea of ad blocking, where the carrier would block ads on behalf of its customers as opposed to customers having to try and come up with their own solutions. It seems that they’re not alone because according to another UK carrier O2, they too are interested.

According to a report from Business Insider UK, O2 executives have told the publication that they are in the advanced stages of looking at technology that could block ads on a network level, meaning that O2 will be the one blocking the ads on behalf of their customers.

With the launch of the iPad Pro, Apple also unveiled new accessories for it, one of which is the Smart Keyboard. Basically this is a keyboard accessory that will dock the iPad Pro and let you type with it. Similar keyboard cases have been created for Apple’s other iPads before, but this would be the first official one.

However you should probably take good care of it because according to a recent teardown of the keyboard by the folks at iFixit, they have given the keyboard a 0/10 in terms of repairability, with 0 being the lowest score possible, suggesting that repairing it is pretty much impossible and you shouldn’t try.

lara croft goIn recent times, Square Enix Montreal has taken the company’s franchises like Hitman and Tomb Raider and turned them into completely new titles on mobile, such as Hitman GO and Lara Croft GO, both of which are more puzzle-based titles than action-based which is more or less what their original genres were.

However as is usually the case with Square Enix’s mobile games, they do not come cheap with Lara Croft GO priced at $5 at launch.
