09/23/2011, The phrase to “reinvent the wheel” has often been used in negative terms, usually to refer to the creation of something needless or pointless, but in the case of Ron Arad, that is what he has literally done with this bike design, which by all accounts looks like your typical bike with the exception being that the wheels are made out of steel.
09/23/2011, Now here is something that you do not read every single day – we’re talking about cows, actual bovines, that managed to disrupt phone coverage in a rural county in the UK. Vodafone is the mobile provider of that area (West Cumbria), and users there have been left hanging high and dry without a signal for weeks due to a herd of rather peckish cows. These cows apparently broke through […]

09/16/2011, It seems like we can’t get through a week without hearing about another Apple vs Samsung/Samsung vs Apple lawsuit. For those who haven’t been keeping track, both companies have taken their patent war to a global scale, with Apple chasing Samsung to Australia, then Europe where they got a successful injunction upheld in Germany and then taking it to Japan. Samsung then brought the fight to France, and earlier this […]
09/12/2011, When the iPhone launches, usually it’s the lucky folks in the states who get their hands on the device first, with the rest of the world watching in envy and eagerly anticipating when they will be able to get their hands on the iPhone.
