Sciby noticed this cool stabilised camera video. This short was shot with the The "MoVI" - a digital 3-axis gyro-stabilized handheld camera gimbal. The completely silent device weighs under 3.5 pounds bare and can be operated solo, or with the help of a second "gimbal" operator with a joystick to pull off some incredible moves.

Facebook have revealed their Facebook Home app, which seems to take over your phone and make the whole thing social. Once installed on the handset, it replaces the lock screen and home screen with Cover feed that streams status updates and photos from friends. Along with Cover feed users will also get notifications about Facebook updates from friends with their profile picture and also about other events, calls and apps.

With the new Game of Thrones season having started, and apparently being widely pirated in Australia, it seems fair enough for Australian group Axis of Awesome to have a Rage of Thrones video, thanks sjobeck. Everyone is excited except... the people who read the books. They know what's coming. The Axis of Awesome made a hilarious music video called 'Rage of Thrones' about those people and how they feel about us bandwagoners.

Quantum supercomputers are making great strides. Two years after Lockheed Martin acquired the first commercially viable quantum computer from D-Wave Systems, the American aerospace and technology giant is once again throwing its weight behind a technology many thought was still the stuff of science fiction. Lockheed Martin has just upgraded its D-Wave One quantum computer to the D-Wave Two, a machine the company’s founder Geordie Rose said is 500,000 times faster than its predecessor, which was already faster than a conventional computer.

iiNet had a very popular April Fools this year. Turns out that after the April Fool’s Day dust settled, people checking their accounts have found that the ISP was, in-fact, telling the truth. Not about the system fault, mind, but about the fact that it made everything its users browsed or downloaded that day count as “Freezone” content, which doesn’t affect your monthly usage cap.
