Burger King just proposed the unthinkable

Other than Coke-vs.-Pepsi, I can’t think of a fiercer food company rivalry than McDonald’s-vs.-Burger King. Because of this, I was astounded to see that Burger King has asked McDonald’s to join it in creating a super sandwich to celebrate International Day of Peace called the McWhopper. More →

Siri can be a life saver… literally

Siri probably isn’t the most frequently used feature on your iPhone. It’s occasionally hard of hearing, it’s rarely more convenient than simply unlocking your phone and finding the information you need, and it can be obnoxious to attempt to use it in public. But in a moment of desperation, Apple’s digital assistant could save your life. More →

Despite such technological gains, airplane food remains one facet of the flying experience that has seemingly failed to evolve. As it turns out, there is a viable explanation behind the blandness and general ‘meh’ experience that one traditionally associates with eating at 25,000 feet.

Then, after shutting down the engine, the pilot began gliding the plane ahead of his runway approach and belly landing.
