News and Reviews for August 6th 2009

There wasn’t much in the way of news yesterday from our friends so I skipped a day obviously… Yesterday Fedex and UPS dropped me off a few interesting things though, the Wi-Fire and the TrickleStar were two of them

So let’s check what happened today, August 6th in history before we hit the news:

1926 – Harry Houdini performs his greatest feat, spending 91 minutes underwater in a sealed tank before escaping.

1945World War II: Hiroshima is devastated when an atomic bomb, "Little Boy", is dropped by the United States B-29 Enola Gay. Around 70,000 people are killed instantly, and some tens of thousands died in subsequent years due to burns and radiation poisoning.

1996NASA announces that the ALH 84001 meteorite, thought to originate from Mars, contains evidence of primitive life-forms.

Kind of a boring day in history really…

Who was born today?

1809Alfred Lord Tennyson, English poet

1928 – Andy Warhol, American artist

1972Geri Halliwell, British singer

1990Jon Benet Ramsey

anyway… here’s the news:
