Lots of houses have pools out back, especially in warmer climates. But how many of them have a 256-foot water slide with two loops that goes from the top floor into the pool? Not many!
This luxury vacation villa in Koh Samui, Thailand, was designed by Hong Kong’s Lulu Holidays. It’s got all sorts of other amenities like a fancy kitchen and a beautiful pool table, but if you were staying in a house with a water slide sticking off the balcony, how much time would you really be spending inside?

Since the iPad’s U.S. launch, Apple has had to restrict sales to two per person. That’s because the U.S. has been the only place to buy them, and Europeans have been trying to buy 10 at a time to bring home and sell to friends. Looks like that won’t be an issue for much longer.
On May 28, the following countries get to hand over more of their hard-earned money to Apple for a shiny piece of tech: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the U.K.. And then in July, Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand [...]
Motorola might be releasing approximately a bagillion phones per minute these days, but that hasn’t stopped it keeping it an eye on the older ones.
Well, we say older, as the Motorola Milestone only launched at the tail end of last year – hardly ancient in phone terms.
But it ‘only’ launched in the UK with Android 2.0, which is so last year – it’s all about Android 2.1 these days, with all them fancy things like interactive wallpapers (trust us, they’re awesome).
Upping the ante
So the good news if you’re in Europe and have forked out the moolah for the [...]
Following earlier reports that Google is being accused of collaborating with U.S. spy agencies, Google founder and president of technology Sergey Brin still hopes for a reconciliation with China.
“Perhaps we can return to serving mainland China in the future,” Brin told the New York Times this week.
It is not surprising that Brin wants to find a resolution to this current impasse, as China has nearly 400 million web users, and a greater number of potential customers for mobile phones and smartphones.
Confusion over strategy
As far as relocating its search functions to Hong Kong, there [...]
A Chinese Communist Party newspaper accused Google of colluding with U.S. spies this week.
A report in the overseas edition of the People’s Daily, the chief newspaper of China’s ruling Communist Party, said that Google’s retreat from the Chinese market – with the search giant relocating its websites to a Hong Kong-based server – was a justification of Beijing’s own efforts to promote Chinese-developed tech.
Doublethink and internet gods
Google has closed down Google.cn and began rerouting searches to a Hong Kong-based site, which has prompted the Communist Party paper [...]
Internet users in China searching Google’s Hong Kong-hosted site (google.com.hk) for information on Falun Gong, the banned spiritual movement, or ’89 student movement’ were met with an all-too familiar message: “the connection was reset” today.
This is because the ‘great firewall of China’ is already blocking search results from Google’s new Hong Kong hosted site.
“Connection was reset”
Google’s decision to relocate its Chinese-language search engine from Beijing to Hong Kong will no doubt have many repercussions. The first of which [...]
Google has stopped censoring its search results in China and started to re-direct Chinese users to an uncensored Hong-Kong based site.
Chinese state officials have been quick to criticise the move, saying it was ‘totally wrong’ and in violation of Google’s promise to abide by Chinese law.
Beijing’s firewalls are already censoring sensitive searches within mainland China.
Major political upheaval
Google has explained the move in detail on its blog.
For its part, China is clearly not happy with the latest moves by Google, with Chinese foreign ministry spokesman [...]
Google and the Chinese government have been going back and forth for a while now, with China wanting Google to continue censoring its search results (with a number of Google’s sites, such as Blogger and YouTube, blocked entirely), while Google has been resistant to keep doing so. The search giant’s hesitation, pinpointed in a post on Google’s official blog, came after “Gmail accounts of dozens of human rights activists connected with China were being routinely accessed by third parties” for nefarious purposes. Today, Google has come to a decision and announced that [...]
