Designing the interface for a newspaper

I just stumbled on this post from Oliver Reichenstein from Information Architects about their pitch for the redesign of Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger. In a world where newspapers are rapidly loosing ground to web based competition, ideas like these might help make the old paper media more relevant to readers who have grown used to the web.

I really need to buy myself a Jetpack…

The Martin Aircraft Company in New Zealand has developed this Jetpack… and I think I’m going to have to start saving up my pennies! Unlike the old jetpacks from the 60’s this one uses fans rather then actual rockets or jets, but it does look like it will fly for half an hour or 31 miles or so.
