How cool is that:
The vehicle, made by Honda for Top Gear magazine, goes from 0-60mph (95km/h) in roughly four seconds.
The team behind it may attempt to have an official go at the lawnmower speed record, which stands at 96.5mph.
In a test run, Top Gear magazine clocked “just over 100mph” on the back straight of the Circuit de Charade testing course in France.

The lawnmower was also put through its paces by Top Gear’s “the Stig”.
The British Lawn Mower Racing Association said Top Gear’s mower would not be able to compete in July’s World Championships because of strict limits on the number of modifications entrants can make to their bodies, lol.

Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet PC
What do we really know about this tablet? All I see is tech savy writers try to outwit each other in insignificant knowledge and speculations about the Kindle Fire tablet.
Two interesting articles about the current state of gaming:

The games that made me
Just read this exercept:
- I leaned patience from rock-hard games like Impossible Mission, Ghosts ‘n Goblins and Thrust (and from waiting for them to load via cassette).
- I learned how to spell from text adventures like Zork, The Hobbit and Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy.
- I learned social skills from multi-player games like Gauntlet, Pitstop 2 and Ballblazer.
- I developed a love of all sports from simulations like Leaderboard, International Soccer and Summer Games
- I learned to appreciate exotic animals from Jeff Minter’s Attack of the Mutant Camels, Metagalactic Llamas Battle at the Edge of Time and Sheep in Space.
- I learned how to think strategically and quickly adapt to changing fortunes from Archon, Boulderdash and Super Pipeline 2.
- And I learned the universe was a really, really big place from Elite.
What are the games that have made you?
Interesting gaming questions there, lol.
Meanwhile here is a list of free online games to kill time with:

Boob Job app for iPhone smartphone with breast augmentation
Breast augmentation is expensive and time-consuming — and can’t just be done to strangers on the street. So what are you supposed to do if you really want to see how someone would look with a slightly larger chest? Reach for your iPhone, of course!
With an iPhone app appropriately named Boob Job you can give anyone a little lift and boost.
All you need to do is install the app — you can get it from the Apple App Store for a dollar — and find or take a photo of your lucky patient. Then you’ll just swipe, drag, and pinch your fingers against your iPhone’s screen a few times and — tada! — breast augmentation surgery complete.
I decided to try out the app on fellow blogger Whitson Gordon who — while clever and delightfully witty — isn’t exactly in possession of breasts that would make Pamela Anderson envious. I snatched a photo off his Facebook page, opened it in the Boob Job app, dragged some circles onto his chest, and resized them appropriately. Then I tapped some vaguely marked buttons on the next screen to increase the selected parts and add a little highlight along the newly created curves.
You can see Whitson’s pre-virtual-surgery and post-virtual-surgery photos above. The final result won’t tempt any Victoria’s Secret modeling scouts, but it makes for a great laugh.
Is that a cool concept or what?

A dog which was rescued at sea off the coast of Kesennuma, Japan, on Friday after being found drifting on a roof is believed to have survived for three weeks after being washed away by the killer tsunami triggered by the March 11 earthquake. Coast guard members aboard a helicopter involved in the day’s search for those still missing after the disaster found the dog on the roof drifting along some 1.8 kilometres off Kesennuma, Miyagi Prefecture. It took several hours to catch the dog and bring him to the safety of a coastguard vessel. The dog’s collar has no clues about the owner such as address and contact numbers.

What a day on the stock exchanges around the world.
Nikkei down over 10% on Tuesday. 10%! And Nikkei did extremly poorly on Monday as well. Poor Japan, I hope they will be spared of more misery now and that damages can be mended effectively. It is comforting to see the international support for Japan.
Back to the stock exchanges however, one can’t help but notice that solar stocks have skyrocketed the last two days.
While the world markets have been down two days in a row, solar stocks have bucked the trend and skyrocketed as much as 20% in two days. And the momentum keeps building up.
The worlds largest producers of solar panels, Suntech Power and Yingli Green have shot through the roof today, with Yingli Green up from 10.50 on Friday to 12.25 today, Tuesday.

Solar stocks have been upgraded, nuclear power companies, such as Hitachi, that built the nuclear reactors in Japan have been hammered and downgraded, and even oil companies are being downgraded at the time of this writing.
Could this finally become the moment for solar companies to shine, not just economically as they already have over the last few years, but shine with a solid position ideologically and become immune to political instability from now on?

Does these skis look great or what? Seems that Audi is going to start production of a carbon fiber ski later this year, possibly in some sort of partnership with Head. Supposed to be both light weight and strong; all ski enthusiasts will be waiting eagerly for this one by Audi.
