  • YouTube – Pixel Qi vs iPad
    This is why I'm waiting to buy a Notion Ink Adam. I need an iPad type device to replace soon-to-be three folders of product portfolio information which are both heavy and tend to get dog-eared. But, as I work with outdoor businesses, I need a screen that can be viewed outdoors. OK, I'll have to move to somewhere shady to see full colour (essential to view plant photos), but I'd have to move somewhere shady to see just about anything on iPad. Clearly Apple will need to offer Pixel Qi or something similar on future versions.

  • BBC News – Zephyr solar plane flies 7 days non-stop
    "The launch was absolutely beautiful; it was just so smooth," said Mr Saltmarsh. "We had five people lift it above their heads, start running and it just lifted away into the sky." Now, if this had been designed by Americans instead of Britons, then there would have been some incredibly complicated launch mechanism. As it is, five blokes pick it up and run along with it. Brilliant.
