  1. Submarine detection by gravitational anomaly

    That's what the BBC reporters claim anyway. Bosh. Bogus nonsense. How on earth is that true. Your underwater submarine displaces its exact weight of water. If it didn't it would sink. The principle of buoyancy applies. So how is a gravity measurement, either from the sea floor or the surface,...

  2. Phone Number Hijacking

    My phone number has been hijacked and is being used for spoofing. Apparently, all the numbers being spoofed with my phone are in the (717)314 number range which is the same as mine. Any ideas or suggestions?

  3. Breadboards

    I looked on eBay to see what exists to teach basic electronics and it's all there, all from the Far East, all extremely cheap. The best bit is the header power supply, it's the MB102 ( For under £3 you can have one delivered, with a 400-hole...

  4. Star Trek's tricorder finally reaches the shops

    After a 2 year wait of a Kickstarter campaign which raised, I think, around $2m, in which I didn't participate, I just bought a "Scio molecular sensor". It pairs with a smartphone, creates a visible to infra-red absorption spectrograph and compares it to an on-phone library of known materials,...

  6. The Kindle Fire

    Ordered one Tuesday and had it Friday. Having a little trouble searching for apps that I know exist, but it's kept me out of trouble today. The battery life is not what my kindles was, but that is to be expected. Other than that I haven't found much to complain about, but I'll keep...

  7. Project Fi

    I signed up for this 3 months ago and am loving it, though I've been experiencing a few issues here and there. I've been thinking it was the phone (Nexus 6). My cell bill is half of what it was with AT&T. I ordered the new Nexus 6P which is being shipped today. I'm excited. I'm giving the Nexus...

  8. I, For One, Welcome Our New Robotic Overlords

    Autonomous cars, robo-butlers, robotic checkout lanes. I'm okay with all of it. I'd personally enjoy reading sleeping or watching a movie instead of driving. Especially on long trips.

  9. Review - Samsung Galaxy Ace (GT-S5830i, 832MHz)

    I've had several cellphones, all pay as you go. The first had an extensible aerial and I forget who made it but it lasted me eight years. Then I had a succession of identical builder's bricks - the Nokia 5210 with the rubber case - there are two on my desk still with active SIMs. A few months ago I...

  15. 12 Obsolete Technologies Americans Still Use

    As long as they remain functional, I think some of these devices will be around for some time to come! Going down the list, I can relate to a few of them but most of them are simply fond memories! We still have some blank VHS tapes and have been known to use them in a pinch but mostly they're...

  17. One Reason you can ditch your Digital SLR (DSLR) for an iPhone
