Gizmodo reported –

More than just being a $0.99 novelty, though, ‘Am I Going Down’ is a good case study in human irrationality. Most nervous flyers are probably dimly aware that they’re at far greater risk driving or walking or shovelling snow, but there’s something emotionally terrifying about plane crashes that captures our imagination.

Help For A Water-Damaged Phone

Water-DamageThe Telegraph reported –

Oliver Murphy, a 20-year-old inventor turned entrepreneur has devised an ingenious system for bringing phones that have been damaged by liquids back to life. “When I was 13, I used to repair phones,” he explained. “I’d buy batches of broken ones off eBay, fix them up and sell them on again. I did that for four years.” Mr Murphy came across hundreds of water-damaged phones and decided to find a solution. “Most people don’t understand why phones break when they get wet,” he said. “It’s not actually the water, it’s the minerals and deposits in the water which attach to the phone component.”After experimenting with a variety of cleaning agents, Mr Murphy finally landed on a special solution that removed these deposits and left the phone as good as new. He launched his new product, Reviveaphone, in July. Within weeks, he was selling 200 a month through his website. His product, costing £14.99, contains a pouch, a tray and a “secret” solution. The damaged phone is dropped into the pouch, submerged in the solution for seven minutes, and then left to dry on the tray for 24 hours. “A patent is pending,” he said.

The entire face of the 5.1-inch device is covered with a layer of sapphire crystal (pictured) weighing more than 100 carats, according to Vertu. So owners won’t have to worry themselves about marks on the 4.3 inch 720p display — unless a diamond ring brushes it. Its casing is made from polished titanium which, besides being lightweight and tougher than stainless steel, is expensive.
