Watch this crazy crosswind landing and try not to scream

Crosswind landing video

Videos pop up time to time of passenger jets landing in crosswinds. It's not pretty and looks fiercely uncomfortable, but ultimately, it never looks like they're not going to stick the landing. That's not what happened here.

This clip shows an Airbus A380, the largest passenger jet currently in service, touching down during a storm in Dusseldorf. Things look OK as the plane approaches the runway, but it's what happens after the wheels touch tarmac that would make me poop myself.

Get ready for home internet prices to double

Home internet service providers

Been enjoying your reasonably-priced home internet connection recently? Don't get too comfortable. US cable companies, led by Comcast, are all set to start increasing broadband prices dramatically, with price hikes of double current rates expected in the future.

That's the conclusion of New Street Research and analyst Jonathan Chaplin, who released a new report that's good news for the cable industry, and bad for anyone who doesn't enjoy giving money to their local monopolist.

Top new Apple Watch Series 3 features – is it worth the price premium? [Video]

The Apple Watch Series 3 launched alongside the new iPhones two weeks ago, and it’s arguably a more exciting hardware update than the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. With the release of the Series 3, Apple removed the Series 2 from the lineup, leaving customers with a choice between the Apple Watch Series 1 and the Apple Watch Series 3.

With the Series 1 starting at just $249 (or less), it’s an attractive offer that many will consider, but after going hands-on with Series 3 ($329+) over the last few weeks, I think that would be a mistake.

In the past, this was a more nuanced decision, as the Apple Watch Series 1 and the Apple Watch Series 2 were basically the same device, minus a few differences with things like water resistance, GPS, and the like. With the Series 1 vs Series 3, however, there’s a significantly larger gap between these two devices from both a price and feature perspective.

For those in the market for a new Apple Watch, which model should you consider? Have a look at our hands-on video walkthrough for the details. more…
