If you're interested in this sort of thing, U-869 I believe it was, was discovered not far from the coast of New Jersey. Really excellent book about the discovery called "Shadow Divers" - it was in 230 feet of water, in relatively early days of technology for scuba (trimix was a brand new thing), so its discovery was… » 10/21/14 8:56pm Tuesday 8:56pm

Jamie have you or any of the giz folks had hands or eyes on time with this thing? Seems like a good entry level thing for my kid...but at the same time, in my experience, devices that try to fill multiple niches rarely fill them all very well.

While I (obviously) haven't given it a good once over yet since I just got it last night I have to say, I DETEST the new look of yosemite. I wasn't a big fan with the flat look when it was new to iOS and that opinion continues even more so on a larger screen.
For me, so far however, the BIGGEST irritation is the… » 10/17/14 5:28am Friday 5:28am
