A BBC Arabic correspondent was attacked on air in the Israeli city of Ashkelon, just outside Gaza, while reporting on the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The journalist, Feras Khatib, was wearing a PRESS vest during the live report in the Arabic language when a man, apparently an Israeli, approached and violently shoved him sideways, as seen on the video posted on YouTube.
PhoneBloks Wants to Make a Modular Phone - And Needs Your Help
PhoneBloks is a conceptual smartphone which is modular - making the individual major components replaceable and offering customization like no other phone on the market today.
There are many reasons, of course, why the big manufacturers aren’t putting something like this on the market - e.g profit, but the concept is a great one and if anything the message about tech waste needs to be spread.
You can help Dave (the guy behind this concept) out by donating your social reach on Thunderclap (which is crowdsourcing for social messaging - this site in itself is pretty neat so if you haven’t been there yet head on over). https://www.thunderclap.it/all
What do you think? Would you buy a phone like this?
