    When it comes to computer technology, thin is always in. It’s indisputable that the thinner, lighter, clearer, the better when dealing with the latest computer gadget. This keyboard is the epitome of the high standards expected of the technological version of the fashion industry. It’s based on image as well, that is, image recognition technology.

    Copenhagen (BH) – Moments after the International Olympic Committee announced that Chicago had been eliminated as a host site for the 2016 Olympic games, a group of US politicians, celebrities, and media figures held a press conference to protest the decision as “based on racism.” The group, which includes two former US Presidents, distributed a release with the headline: “I.O.C. and K.K.K. are not O.K. with the U.S.A.” President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle, and talk show host Oprah Winfrey - all Chicagoans – had traveled to Denmark in the hope that their popularity would lend some star appeal to...

    Okay … I’m laying this out on the table right now – I want one of these things. Talk about cool, what could be better than having your own submersible that looks like a dolphin on steroids. With the Seabreacher you can jump, dive and roll through the water at speeds of up to 40mph, or 20mph underwater. There’s a few different models of this beauty from Innespace Productions who took ten years to develop. For the average person it apparently is no sweat in learning how to drive and maintain a Seabreacher however the sticker price for all...

     Holy frak. Holy frak. HOLYROLLERBLADINGFRAK! Movie producers paid two Sukhoi Su-35 pilots to fly without a canopy at Mach 2.0, and have one of them eject in what probably is one of the most dangerous stunts ever filmed. While on this speed I even managed to pull out my fingers in glove for an inch or two outside - it became heated very fast because of immense friction force plane undergoes with the air. That's what the pilot who remained in the cabin said he did after his crazy comrade ejected, landing safely on the ground. I don't know...
