Funny AirAsia Aircraft Safety Demonstration

Check out this funny Aircraft Safety Demonstration by AirAsia.

According to some reports, this is not the official Aircraft Safety Demonstration from AirAsia. The flight attendant was trying to be creative. Let’s hope he doesn’t get into trouble from the company. After all, its quite entertaining and certainly captures everyone’s attention. Good job. In fact, AirAsia should even consider implementing this on all their flights.

PS: But the best Aircraft Safety Demonstration award still goes to Cebu Pacific Air (for the obvious reason)

Read It Later renames as Pocket

Here’s a secret. (OK, not really a secret) I’ve been using Read It Later to mark stuff to read later. It’s a great tool for procrastinator like me. Read It Later allows you to mark a website for later reading on your computer, tablet or smartphone.

Read It Later just announced recently that they are renaming themselves as Pocket. The user interface has been revamped to a much prettier skin. Looks kinda like Flipboard now.

I’m actually loving the new interface since I’m a huge fan of flipboard. But why change your name as Pocket? I love the name “Read It Later”.

You can register for Pocket at getpocket.com. Get the app on your iPhone, iPad, Android or Kindle too.

PS: readitlater.com now redirects you to the new URL.
