Live updates from the Rosetta mission from 9am GMT this morning. Attempting to make the first-ever landing on a comet.  Good luck to them!

Aside from the demonstrated benefits, I assume this was developed as a steady-cam mount?  Those actuators are SO fast!

Boing!  Wheeeeee!  Perfect landing.

More shenanigans caught on a dash camera that would otherwise be lost to the world.

So here I was, a couple of days ago, waiting for a friend of mine to join me for a run around Barcelona.  It occurred to me that I didn't have a good way to tell him where I was in the city.  Sure, I could send him a Google Maps link, but what I really want is a way to send GPS co-ords so that Android's intents system can pick an app on his device and show him the way.  Is there a good way to do this?

We were using WhatsApp to communicate when we were there (there were a large group of us) and again, it would have been a fantastic feature if we could just dump location markers.  We used to use Google Latitude for this, but privacy concerns meant people didn't want "always on" location tracking.

Yes +Danny Ahlers - it's real!  You wouldn't believe how long it took the crew to train 2D Donkey Kong to do that.

It's not every day your home gets turned into a filming location for a Disney movie.  But apparently that's what's happening today at Gloucester's Historic Docks!
