Austrian daredevil to jump from 23 miles above the Earth’s surface

Austrian daredevil to jump from 23 miles above the Earth’s surface

This stunt is so totally insane it's hard to imagine someone would have the idea of actually pulling it off. Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner plans to pull off a stunt sponsored by the energy drink Red Bull that will lift him 23 miles above the Earth's surface to the edge of space. Once at that altitude, he will jump and free fall back to earth while breaking the sound barrier. I wonder if that means he won't be able to hear his own screams.

Strange objects found at the bottom of the Baltic Sea create a stir

Strange objects found at the bottom of the Baltic Sea create a stir

The Captain and crew of an ocean salvaging operation made an interesting find in the Baltic Sea, which was apparently originally discovered by a company called Ocean Explorer. The new crew is a company specializing in deep-sea salvage, and it appears that they have happened on the same wreck that the Ocean Explorer company found a while back. I recall the photo having surfaced previously because it looks a lot like the Millennium Falcon to me. The team has no idea what the object they discovered using deep-sea side sonar might be.

Facebook bed pokes you by your pillow

Facebook bed pokes you by your pillow

If you are the sort who can't stand being away from Facebook out of fear of missing a post or a poke from a pal, we found the bed for you. Sure, you could do what most people do and just charge your smartphone at the bedside, but this concept is better for the true Facebook fan. It's called the Facebook bed. I imagine Zuckerberg has something similar.

If you have a fascination for mythological creatures like flying lions, horse/men, and one-eyed giants and live in Tucson, Arizona, you need to check out the exhibit at the International Wildlife Museum.

Sony Dot Switch video is strange and confusing

Sony has tossed a very strange video up on YouTube that shows someone using a Xperia smartphone to hit a round button on the screen. As they walk down a path with various devices on tables and press the circle on the touchscreen, the devices randomly come on and do their thing. It's strange, and you can see the video below.

Oddest questions asked in job interviews this year by tech firms

Oddest questions asked in job interviews this year by tech firms

I have worked at real jobs in the past surrounded by people that were possibly the biggest idiots on earth. I knew we have all wondered at one point who exactly interviewed this person next to us in the office and decided they were worth hiring. If you don't know that person in the office, odds are you are that person everyone wonders about. I've never been asked a really weird question in a job interview, but I would be willing to be that many geeks have.

WiFi packing vending machines hit Japan

WiFi packing vending machines hit Japan

In my area, there are no hotspots to use for free anywhere. You can get access in some restaurants, but just being able to pick up a WiFi signal doesn't happen. In Japan on the other hand, even the vending machines are tossing out free WiFi signals to people walking by on the streets. A beverage company in Tokyo called Asahi soft Drinks pulled the wraps off its new vending machine that not only puts out tasty beverages; it also offers free WiFi.
