Singapore Grand Prix 2013

Sebastian Vettel has just won the SG Grand Prix extending his Championship lead to a clear 60 points. Vettel dominated the GP by taking pole position, setting the fastest lap in the race, and winning the race while leading from start to finish, which means that he picked up his third Grand Chelem. He is now side-by-side with Nelson Piquet on the all-time record.

I wasn't able to catch the podium interview, but I read that there were again boos aimed at Vettel. Even Martin Brundle (interviewer) was ticked off by it that he had to say that's "not correct" to the crowd. Cool as ever, Vettel jokingly replied that maybe they're on a bus and are being ferried to each race.

I understand that to a lot of fans (I'm assuming Alonso's and Hamilton's),  it's getting quite boring since he always wins, but do they really have to boo Vettel and Red Bull because they're doing great? Maybe they need to direct those boos to Mercedes and Ferrari because they just can't seem to match the great job that RBR is doing.

Phonebloks: A Lego-like Smartphone

Phonebloks is a modular smartphone that's truly customizable. It is made up of separate, interchangeable blocks that are easily upgraded or replaced. What I find really interesting about it is, that you can design your phone with the components depending on what you need, and leave off those you don’t. If you're into taking photos, you can opt to have an upgraded camera block, or if you're always online, you can choose an upgraded battery block. If you're not so much into how a phone looks, but more into what a phone can do, then you'd find this idea pretty awesome like I do. 

Right now, the phone is just a concept and the designer, Dave Hakkens, is more interested in getting social media attention. A Thunderclap has been scheduled on the 29th of October to spread the word around. Click the link if you want to join the Thunderclap and support this concept.

Here's the You Tube video explaining how Phonebloks works.
