O2 has recently been forced to say sorry in the wake of another network problem which left some 10% of their 23 million customers without phone coverage. Chief Executive Ronan Dunne said he was “embarrassed” by the glitch, which comes only months after a similar network failure, back in July of this year. Personally I […]
Superconductors locked in a magnetic field. Sometimes referred to as quantum locking, quantum trapping or, more commonly, quantum levitation. Whichever way you look at it, the procedure is very impressive to watch.
My iPhone 4 is almost 2 years old and has been wrapped in a £3 silicone case since the day I got my hands on it. Before that, my iPhone 3G-S was housed in a similarly priced case that I found on Amazon. It should therefore come as no surprise that my iPhone 3G spent […]
Project Glass is the future. And it’s happening today! This kind of thing is already possible in a variety of smart phone applications but Google have taken it one step further and bundled everything into a pair of augmented reality glasses. If you’re unfamiliar with Project Glass, this video should give you a better idea of what […]
Look what happens when this iPhone 4 is completely submerged in water: That’s right, absolutely nothing. Hang on a second. Nothing happens! That is because the Liquipel iPhone has been treated to a special nano coating which prevents the water from interfering with the electronics. According to the Liquipel website, this technology can be applied to the […]
Quantum Levitation is a process in which a superconducting disk is locked in three dimensional space using a permanent magnet. It is also known as quantum locking and quantum trapping. Whichever way you look at it, it’s pretty impressive. I first blogged about quantum levitation in October 2011, joking that fans of Back to The […]
Earlier this week I replaced the hard drive from my original (“fat”) Sony Playstation 3, upgrading from 40 to 250 GB of storage. The whole process took less than an hour and, in hindsight, I wish I had performed the upgrade a long time ago. Once the new HD was installed, both BBC iPlayer and […]
