Here's a question that I didn't know I was curious about until I heard it asked, at which point I became insanely interested: can a rocket launcher break through bulletproof glass? My answer came in video form, and it's a big fat sometimes. With thinner bulletproof glass, it gets punched through like paper, as seen above. But if you're lucky enough to have 10cm-thick bulletproof glass, you should be OK. Well, unless you're standing too close, in which case you might get your arm ripped off like the unfortunate dummy in the video after the jump. Thanks again for satisfying curiosities I wasn't aware I had, internet! [Japan Probe via Spulch]
Rocket Launcher vs. Bulletproof Glass in a Battle for the Ages

It's only been six weeks since the Huawei Mate 20 was announced at IFA, but boy has a lot happened since then. There were fresh leaks and rumours every few days ... and a lot of them were right. But the wait is finally over and we have laid our eyes on them for real this time. Here's how much the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will set you back, when you can get your hands on one in Australia, and exactly what those specs ended up being.
The history of smartphone improvement has largely relied on companies cramming faster or more powerful components into the now ubiquitous glass slabs we carry around. But the Pixel 3 is something else. Instead of focusing on things like a brighter screen, tons of RAM, or multiple rear cameras, almost all of the Pixel 3's advantages come from a software-first mindset. This results in a smarter, more intuitive experience that feels very different from the hardware-driven approaches employed by many of Google’s competitors. And while this isn’t Google’s first attempt at something like this, this third Pixel (we evaluated both it and the Pixel 3 XL) is the device that really pulls all of Google’s efforts together and makes it feel special.
