Nice, yes, but what's wrong with using the wind. We've used wind for thousands of years to propel ships across the oceans, along the rivers, across lakes.

Rory Cellan-Jones: "Why would anybody want a watch that thought it was a phone?"

Samsung called it a "fashion icon".

"A fool and their money is soon parted".

Nope, a precocious kid that craves street cred will skint their inadequate parents.

Neat idea, but far more than i'm willing to pay for a whole phone, let alone an accessory for a phone i don't have.
Sony's offering might be worth a look though, that works with more phones, not just Galaxies.

Now this does make one wonder....

Sorry Minister, the computers don't understand

"A £425 million computer network intended to administer the Universal Credit doesn’t work properly. Already, £34 million worth of equipment has been written off."

"The BBC and Labour were revelling in Duncan Smith’s discomfort. One might have expected the BBC to be a little more understanding. It’s only about three months ago that BBC bosses had to scrap a useless £100 million computer system."

"Labour has no grounds for smugness when it comes to IT projects. It blew £12 billion on an NHS computer system which never worked and had to be written off."

"My computer spoke to Amazon’s computer, which spoke to a third party supplier’s computer. The third party’s computer checked stock records and posted my order almost immediately."

Hmmn, how about getting Amazon to run the government's computer systems.....you never know, it might just work as it should do :)

The Russians have a good way of dealing with pirates. Handcuff them all to their own boat, then do this.

Edit; or this. Skip to 4.30 for the punchline.

Lets see how many Russian boats get attacked now!

In this case, North Carolina can be grateful that technology failed......

Nice switch

As for iOS 7 on an iPhone 4S, my verdict... Bland.
