Flying Cars & New Samsung Monitor


Yes, it's a crappy time to take out a home equity loan, but sell your house if you need to to be financially ready for the groovy new flying saucer from California-based dreamers Mollar Intl.

The two-seater M 200G can take off and land vertically and hover 10 feet above the ground, the maximum for an unlicensed pilot. It's successor, the M400, will be able to move on land or air, where it conceivably could hit speeds of 400 mph.

Production of the M 200G begins in a few months, according to the company, and the price will be somewhere between $500,000 and $1 million, depending on demand.

Microsoft Surface, Firefox Extensions, Flickr and the B Society

Microsoft Surface

Microsoft Surface is a exciting new concept that will change the way people interact with computers. The Surface is touch sensitive, working without a keyboard or mouse, and reacts to brushes. It has has the ability to interact with things places on it whether photos, phones, etc. The possibilities offered by Surface blur the line between virtual and reality.

Link dump

Ok I want to close some of the 60 odd tabs I have open in Firefox.

Heres what most of them are - the ones I wanted to keep the link to anyway.

Australia's Digitial TV Forum good place to find reviews on hardware, electronic program guides and all other aspects of digital TV in Australia.

OzForex Foreign Exchanmge website - great for tracking rates and more. I use this seeing as I have international clients and contractors working for me.

Ross and Jan Grant
- my mates Ross and Jan are currently in Kenya doing church planting training work. Awesome news and stories to read from their time over there.

- free discount vouchers for use in Australian businesses - great way to save money - simply find what you are looking for and print them out! Everything from pizzas to dry-cleaning, movies to travel.

The biggest web page ever! Check it out - it really is BIG!

NineMSN Slideshow website - slideshows from one of our local news networks.
