Australia, Netherlands Start To Secure Crash Site
A small group of Dutch and Australian investigators walked the sprawling, unsecured site where Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 went down as their governments prepared police detachments that will try to protect the crash area and help bring the last of the victims home. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said his country was ready to send 40 unarmed military police to rebel-controlled eastern Ukraine to help investigators, while Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has said his government is close to a deal to send police. Australia has 90 federal police officers standing by in Europe. The Boeing 777 went down July 17 as it headed to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam, killing all 298 people on board. U.S. and Ukrainian officials say it was shot down, likely by mistake, by a missile fired from rebel-held territory in eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian separatists are fighting Ukrainian government forces. Security concerns and rebel interference has delayed recovery of the bodies and has limited investigators' access to the site, more than a week after the crash.
Mazda Recalls U.S. Cars With Faulty Takata Air Bags
Japan's Mazda Motor Corp will broaden a recall of cars sold in the United States because an air-bag inflator, supplied by Japan's Takata Corp, could rupture and seriously injure occupants. The issue of ruptured inflators - which can hurl metal shrapnel at vehicle occupants - has bedeviled Takata and triggered the recall of millions of vehicles last year. The recalls were expanded this year as issues cropped up in newer models equipped with Takata air bags and inflators. In a filing Friday by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Mazda said it would recall about 18,000 older models, including 18,000 Mazda6 sedans and 50 RX-8 sports cars from 2003-2004.
Special Case Gives Your IPhone Heat Vision
FLIR One is an imaging accessory that weighs a hefty 3.9 ounces (almost as much as the phone), slides onto an iPhone 5 or 5s and adds thermal imaging capabilities to the phone. Unveiled at CES earlier this year, the device's sole job is to detect invisible heat. It combines the heat signature information with the live camera image from your phone to deliver a composite thermal heat image. FLIR Systems says FLIR One is useful for detecting ventilation leaks around doors and windows, car engine trouble, over-heating circuitry and wiring and even allowing you to see when there is no light. No more stumbling around the pitch-black campground, hoping not to step on a raccoon. FLIR One runs off its own internal battery and, according to the company, can thermal scan for up to 2 hours. Thermal imaging doesn't come cheap. FLIR One lists for $349 and will ship to those who pre-order sometime in August.
