        iPads at the Ready! US Airline Travellers Allowed to Use Mobile Devices for Entire Flight

        iPads at the Ready: US Airline Travellers Allowed to Use Mobile Devices for Entire FlightUS airline passengers will soon be able to use their mobile devices – almost unrestricted – aboard flights on most US based carriers by the end of this year.

        The retarded rule thats barred the use of electronic devices during taxi, take-offs and landings has been in place for more than half a century. The new, more relaxed guidelines are the result of a review by the US Federal Aviation Authority.

        The review – take note CASA! less than a year from review to implementation – was setup last year and included input from flight crew, passengers, aviation experts and mobile device makers. The review found – shock horror – that commercial airplanes are able to tolerate radio interference from portable electronic device.

        The change doesn’t apply to phones, the FAA said it hadn’t considered changing the rules for voice calls because they fall under the jurisdiction of another authority and also differ from other devices because of signal strength :: Read the full article »»»»

          Ostrich Pillow’s NEW Take on Power-napping

          Posted: October 15th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Favorite New Thought | Tags: , , , , , , , , | Comments Off

          Ostrich Pillow's NEW Take on Power NappingPower-napping is an essential to most overhard-working professionals today, a quick pre-sws nap can quickly revitalize the warried mind, revitalizing for the next round of power filled decision making. Others may simply know it as a nanna nap, whatever, many swear by the Siesta del Hidalgo.

          A couple of years ago the clever design boffins at Kawamura Ganjavian design studio came up with a soft flannelette bag – a cocoon for the head – that slipped gently over ones head, shutting the world out and allowing the user to drift of for the maximum benefits of sleep without the waking lethargy.

          Ostrich Pillow was born, Studio Banana Things original Ostrich Pillow was a huge hit 2 years ago, it gained a bucket load of press and some solid sales. The clever boffins are back, this time you don’t need a small truck to cart around the Ostrich Pillow.

          The clever design also makes the pillow perfect for commuting -use the buddy system though, muggings! – or long haul journeys, flying, training, busing and driving – again, caution: don’t attempt driving while wearing the pillow!

              Motorings NEXT Big Thing?

              Posted: May 23rd, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Eco Driver, Favorite New Thought | Tags: | Comments Off


              Three wheel motoring has been around for a bunch of time, from the extreme Davis D-2 Divan, to the pedestrian Reliant Robin. The most successful incarnation to date has been in the guise of  scooters - like Piaggio’s MP3, and Peugeot’s clever HYbrid3 - agile, quick and just a little sexy, in an offbeat kinda way. Indeed, the very first motor-car was a 3 wheeler, the 1860s Benz Patent Motorwagen, still history isn’t ever a great reason to repeat something, unless of course you’ve come-up with something as nifty as this!
