Seeing red, or something at least

Sounds like this computer had it coming. Eight rounds should be enough to finish off anyone's difficult computer.

No one wants iPads anymore! Well only 12.62 million people did last year, practically no one.

Getting a hand from Big Brother to help with writing emails. Potentially useful, definitely creepy.

"Red is such an interesting colour to correlate with emotion, because it's on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, all that. On the other end, you've got obsession, jealousy, danger, fear, anger and frustration." - Taylor Swift

Slow cars and the robotic future. Driving is such a waste of time anyway.

Google robots performing surgery?

Dumb robots, smart robots. How do we get there?

"In the twenty-first century, the robot will take the place which slave labor occupied in ancient civilization." - Nikola Tesla

Also, Dinosaurs!!

Flying here, flying there...

A morning commute in a flying car, 1940

How do flight tracker apps work? Lots and lots of people..

Personal drones are getting smarter. Everyone needs a drone right?

Not the best way to travel I imagine. Worker in the US gets trapped in the cargo hold of a plane.

"He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying." - Friedrich Nietzsche

Wild Weather

Hurricanes' origins in the Sahara. I wonder if there are a lot of butterflies there..

Flooding is becoming more and more of a threat across the world. See where is most at risk.

Weather satellites. More than I ever knew about them.
