All too true.

Such is the pitfall of overgreedy monopolistic commercialism...

There are better ways...


Enjoy?!

The quiet skies? Well not quite, but it's an interesting place to fit the motors.

Alice, world's first all-electric passenger plane, takes to the skies.

he world's first all-electric passenger plane took to the skies for the first time to reach an altitude of 3,500 feet during an 8-minute flight in Washington.

After years of development by Eviation Aircraft, the inaugural flight of the zero-emissions plane that's powered by two 640-kilowatt electric motors went off without a hitch when it look off at 7:10 am on Tuesday from Grant County International Airport in Moses Lake, Washington.

Alice is targeted for commuter and cargo markets and will typically operate flights ranging from 150 to 250 miles. For context, a standard flight from New York City to Washington, D.C. is about 206 miles by plane....
Cheers.

Melbourne's last typewriter repairman, Tom Koska
So in an era of instant communication, Mr Koska's skills are still in demand.

"I've actually never been busier," the 79-year-old said.
"Every week I am receiving a typewriter from somebody who wants it repaired. "Sometimes somebody may have inherited it from a grandparent and they want it restored as a memento.
"But I also have requests from young people — children as young as 10 who have made the request of their parents.

I guess throwing the iPhone in anger at something is not going to make you feel better. Stop iPhone abuse before it calls emergency services.

Race cars without wheels, what's next?

In a world first, flying race cars reaching new heights from South Australia.

Cheers.



Those are just big drones. Look at the remote control.

What difference is that from drone racing?

You obviously didn't read the article then.;-)

...They are currently flown by remote control but, within 18 months, pilots such as Lexie Jenson will be airborne inside the crewed aircraft, a major drawcard for her to move to Adelaide from Europe....
