Video: Londa and Bret Edwards were clearing debris from Idaho's Highway 14 when things took a serious turn. Within the span of a few minutes, all hell breaks loose, with huge boulders and trees tumbling down onto the only road in or out of Elk City, Idaho, leaving the town's residents stranded and without power. The landslide was later declared a disaster by officials and it will cost an estimated $US1.5 million to clear the 6m deep pile of rubble blocking Highway 14. A small forest path has been cleared for limited use while the larger cleanup takes place. Thankfully, Londa, Bret and the other Idaho Transportation Department workers present were not injured.

Image. Screenshot Microsoft held a big Surface event in Shanghai overnight. While the event was basically impossible to watch in America, with a broken liveblog and zero English livestreams, savvy viewers (and those fluent in Chinese) might have caught the big news. There's a new Surface Pro. It's been more than sixteen months since Microsoft's landmark tablet-laptop hybrid saw an update. In the intervening time, Microsoft has seen a lot of competitors attempt to encroach on the 2-1 device space While some of those clones have been aesthetically delightful, few have approached the slick combination of design and quality the Surface Pro delivers. So a refresh is welcomed, and this year's refresh could fix some of the tablet laptop's biggest problems, even if the name is stupid.
