Watching These Airplanes Try to Land in Crazy Winds Is the Scariest Thing

Here’s some truly frightening footage of airplanes landing at Birmingham Airport in the UK. “Landing” actually might not be the best term for these though because the airplanes look more like they’re spinning sideways and tilting out of control and praying that their wheels touch the ground instead of bouncing off like a basketball.

Offshore Wind Farms Might Save Us From Hurricanes

Offshore Wind Farms Might Save Us From Hurricanes

In the matchup of wind turbine v. hurricane, our bets have traditionally been with the hurricane. But think about it this way: wind turbines are designed to suck energy out of wind. What if they could suck out so much energy that hurricanes like Katrina or Sandy never form in the first place—with the potentially destructive storm instead spun directly into electricity? That’s the win-win situation posited in a new study from Stanford and University of Delaware researchers.

Wind Mobile launching unlimited US roaming for $15 per month

Small carrier tries to make a splash with a deal that includes unlimited data

In a very consumer-friendly move, Wind Mobile will begin offering unlimited roaming in the U.S. for just $15 additional per month starting February 3rd. Adding this roaming package gives you unlimited talk and text but also data in the U.S., a pretty big deal for anyone who travels with any frequency and has been hit with big roaming bills. Even with this additional $15 add-on, Wind’s plans will still be very competitively priced to the other carriers.

Wind has a small customer base and is often struggling to make itself relevant as the fourth-place carrier in Canada, so this may just be a good bump to pick up some additional subscribers. And given the relatively small number of roaming deals currently available from Canadian and U.S. carriers alike, we always want to see at least one making a step in this direction.
