Ideally, your relationship with your savings bank of choice would comprise mostly of withdrawals, deposits, fund transfers and bill payments, all of which can be done at ATMs, if not online. Sometimes, however, you may require more support than a machine can dispense. POSB, one of Singapore’s largest banks, has started rolling out Video Teller Machines. These machines, which allow you to interact with a bank teller via video chat, will allow for an expanded range of operations, including i...
An Iranian protester peeled off her legally-required veil and performed a cartwheel in a video published to snub the country’s hardline “morality police”. The unnamed woman broke into acrobatics at a park in one of Iran’s biggest cities, then published the footage online. It was filmed in Narges Park, in Qom, the eighth-largest settlement in Iran. Qom, like the rest of the country, is subject to strict laws about what women are allowed to wear – and head coverings...
One of the most unexpected results of the party primaries was Ferdinand Waititu defeating William Kabogo. Ferdinand Waititu aka Babayao beat Governor William Kabogo to clinch the Jubilee ticket in Kiambu County. What was even more surprising was Kabogo’s early concession even before results had been officially announced. Mr Waititu’s win means he is almost certain of being elected Kiambu governor in the August 8, polls because the county is one of the party’s strongholds. Waitit...

Can your patio umbrella charge your devices, play music from them, tell you the weather, broadcast wifi and more? Yeah, didn’t think so. This post Video: Your fanciest lawn umbrella can’t hold a candle to this appeared first on Tech in Asia.
Founded by Mikey Alfred, the skate-centric label Illegal Civilization continues to make big waves through its skate videos, which are often contrasted by laid-back soul music to perfectly document growing up in the melting pot of California. Back with a new IC3 promo video, the IC crew takes to Webster Hall and Stoner Park to unleash some mad skateboarding skills. The footage features "Show Me The Body" Leven Kali, Taco, Amine, G Herbo, Na-kel Smith, Zach Saraceno, Ryder McLaughlin, Olan Prenatt...
Skift Take: Tourists plan entire trips around food with increasing frequency. This has changed the idea of a restaurant as travelers seek immersive dining experiences outside of the traditional seated dinner. — Kristen HawleyDining is quickly becoming the main attraction for global travelers, far beyond the notion of a typical restaurant. At Skift Forum Europe in April, Ben Liebmann, chief operating officer of Copenhagen’s Noma restaurant and Camille Rumani, co-founder and chief operating of...
Heineken just unleashed a new political commercial that has so far been well-received with the public audience, something that Pepsi failed to do with its Kendall Jenner ad. Heineken’s “Worlds Apart" ad -- which is part of its #OpenYourWorld campaign -- features pairs of people who have some diametrically opposed views on climate change, transgender rights, and feminism. The experiment aims to answer, “Can two strangers with opposing views prove that there’s more that unites than divides...
We all know that the current-gen BMW X3 is quite old and in desperate need of replacement, which will happen later this year. However, we aren’t the only ones that know this, as Audi just fired some shots at the current X3 in its newest commercial for the Q5. To be honest, this isn’t the first time Audi has taken shots at BMW in its new Q5 commercials, as a previous commercial called BMW X3 drivers “conformists“. Now, though, this new Audi Q5 commercial takes a shot at th...
As NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson looks on, crewmate Jack Fischer jokes that “you can probably see into my pores” during the first’ever live 4K UHD video feed from the International Space Station. (NASA via YouTube) NASA and AWS Elemental showed off something completely different from the International Space Station today: the first live video in ultra-high-definition 4K detail beamed down from space. The technical achievement was as important as what the audience at the Nationa...

The Nurburgring testing season is in full swing and, even though April had some bad weather in the small town of Nurburg, that didn’t stop German engineers from testing their cars. The BMW F90 M5 was no exception as we can see from the video posted below, putting its brand new all-wheel drive system to the test. By now it’s all but official that the new M5 will come with a system sending power to all four corners of the car. The questions that remain unanswered revolve around the rest of the...
Canadian police said on Wednesday they are investigating whether a beating captured on video, reported to have been distributed through social networking site Facebook, may be connected to a young woman’s murder. Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The video is the latest example of Facebook being used to document violent crimes, a pattern that has led the company to re-evaluate some of its policies. Thailand police on Wednesday said they would consider how to qu...
DJI’s latest accessory, the unambiguously named Goggles, pretty much explains itself. The bulky but otherwise minimalistic gadget streams the view from a DJI drone’s camera in real-time. What this First-Person Viewer (FPV) offers is the ability to control the camera’s view with your head’s movements. This effectively eliminates the nausea commonly caused by FPVs that only offer static views. Don’t expect this convenience to come cheap though. This post Video: DJI&#...
So yes. An actual flying car is available for pre-order right now. It’s not quite Anakin’s speeder or Doc Brown’s hover-converted car, but it should tide us over until those become a reality. The price? US$1.3 million. That amount of money is enough to get you a luxury sports car from McLaren or Koenigsegg, but last we heard, neither of them can take off and land without putting you in extraordinary danger. This post Video: Soar over traffic in this flying car appeared first o...
Police in Thailand on Wednesday said they would discuss how to speed up taking down “inappropriate online content” after a man broadcast himself killing his 11-month-old daughter in a live video on Facebook. Two videos, which were available for nearly 24 hours before they were taken down, show Wuttisan Wongtalay hanging his daughter from a building on the southern Thai island of Phuket on Monday before he turned off the camera and killed himself. “In the future we will discuss ...
For those watching Formula Drift on the regular, the name Kristaps Bluss might sound familiar. He’s a Latvian veteran in the competition, a 36-year old adrenaline junkie who just so happens to be drifting what used to be a BMW E46 M3 in the famous competition. However, this M3 comes with a twist. While originally its German creators meant it to have close to 350 HP coming from a naturally aspirated 3.2-liter straight six engine, in the drifting world that figure isn’t even close to what you ...
The BMW E36 M3 has a cult following that is constantly growing as time goes by. Understandably so too, as the E36 was a truly special car to begin with. Being the first M3 to be offered in Coupe, Convertible and even Sedan guise, you can definitely see how a large following can form, made up of people appreciating more than one body type. Admittedly, it also has a troubling history with engines. US fans of the M division and BMW as a whole have plenty of reasons to be angry at the both of them a...
The new BMW 7 Series is a good car. It’s big, comfy, luxurious and built with some of the best materials in the business. However, it lacks a bit of the tactility that some previous 7 Series have had (although, it’s better than the previous model) and isn’t the most exciting car to drive in BMW’s lineup. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a great driving 7 Series if that’s what you’re after. But if that is, indeed, what you want, you’re goi...
Since debuting the single back in February, Scandinavian producer Kygo's collaboration with Selena Gomez has reached nearly 200 million YouTube views and a staggering 275 million streams on Spotify. Perhaps it was because of Vin Diesel who, despite having a questionable singing voice, was included on the chorus. Meanwhile, the official video dropped today and although Kygo shared what many fans expected to be a preview on Instagram, neither artist actually appears in the visual accompaniment to ...
