Been reading about The Hyperloop Train concept from Elon Musk over the last couple of days and it’s a pretty exciting prospect. I rode on the Shanghai Maglev Train last year, whose top speed is around 268mph (431kph), and that was an awesome enough experience.
After 3½ years using an iPhone 3 I decided to upgrade like a true Apple fan-boy and get an iPhone 5 on launch day. Essentially this is because I had one question that I thought Siri might be able to answer. What else could it be other than “Why Am I Me?”?
Driverless Car from Google
Driverless cars will soon be a reality on the roads of Nevada after the state approved America’s first self-driven vehicle licence.
The first to hit the highway will be a Toyota Prius modified by search firm Google, which is leading the way in driverless car technology.
This is an amazing technological step forward, I wonder how quickly this concept will proliferate around the world and how quick adoption rates will be amongst the public.
There’s been a lot of furore about the Spotify app released for the Apple iPhone in the last week or so, but I’m more excited about the new Flickr app which I downloaded yesterday.
Being a bit of a vinyl junkie I seldom use the iPhone for music anyway, and I can’t realistically see me using Spotify away from my computer, the Flickr app, however, is definitely something I’ll use.
Screen shot from the app front page shows a picture of a toilet from my friend Vanbonko, thinking about music it reminded me of the cover to the Rolling Stones album Beggars Banquet.
