Quad Flight Over Cork

I can see myself watching this daily for a week, looking for more and more of Cork’s oddities.

What I love most about perspectives like this is the inside of city blocks, the cramped mess of buildings that they end up, but usually with little cubbies of light and even greenery. Speaking of which, I had absolutely no idea there was that much green behind Shandon. None. Really must pop in there some day, I’ve put it off for years.

Well done that man. I’d love to know what quad he has, the handling and video are, again, superb. The comments say it’s DJI Phantom, but given the flight time and distance, I’m skeptical. Whatever it is, it puts the cheap Chinese heap I bought to try to shame. :)

Micro-USB Mobiles in Europe

Obsolete before it actually happens?

Top mobile telephone suppliers have agreed to back an EU-wide harmonization of phone chargers, the European Commission said on Monday, hailing the pact as good news for consumers and the environment.

The Commission said the agreement would involve the creation of an EU norm, and that the new generation of mobile phones would use a standard micro-USB socket to ensure compatibility.

Sony Bravia Zoetrope

Been looking forward to this. Still ain’t seen in on the tellybox though.

Acme Klein Bottles

Clifford Stoll really does make Klein Bottles by the way, his Acme Klein Bottle company has been going since 1999, and he hasn’t updated the HTML since by the look of it! :)

When I’m really good I’m going to buy myself a Klein Stein as a cola ‘n caffeine respository for when I’m doing that work stuff.
