Video: I'm not 100 per cent sure the skier in the video didn't clip his head on the boots of the people sitting on the ski lift. But even if he did, he's still badarse enough to complete a casual double backflip off a wild jump. I've watched the video multiple times and it's totally nuts. After he completes the first flip he's basically eye level with the lift, and yet he kept on spinning to nail the trick. The distance he travels in the air is sick.

I've seen many jet ski jumps and backflips, but never from this cool perspective. I don't know the mechanism they use to attach them -- I imagine some articulated arm/gimbal thingamajig -- but I just love these head-mounted action cameras.
We no longer live on Earth, my friends. We're in some weird world where people can do the impossible. Do you want to fly? You should try. Do you want to spin in the air in both directions? I think you can. Because this insane Superman double backflip bicycle trick destroys everything that should be humanly possible. The rider does a full back flip while fully extended in a Superman pose, somehow re-gathers himself onto the bike and then does another full back flip. All in one jump. Sweet.
There are plenty of thoughtful ways in which people can document their year. But when Sam Morrison's father bet him $US100 that he couldn't do a backflip every day of 2011, another approach was born. Yes: Sam Morrison recorded himself doing a backflip every single day of 2011.
Motorola’s popped back up on the smartphone radar in a big way - they’ve recently announced that there’ll be no less than 20 new handsets released worldwide this year, and two have just been launched in Australia. One of them is BACKFLIP, and it's set to give the smartphone market a run for its money.
It's been a while since Optus paved the way for Android in Australian with the launch of the G1. Over a year, in fact. But now they're jumping into bed with Motorola to bring out a couple of new Android handsets, the DEXT and the BACKFLIP, both of which run Motorola's custom Android software MOTOBLUR. Anybody else hate the way those words are all capitalised?
AT&T's first Android phone won't ship with Google Search. Instead, The Motorola Backflip's home screen will sport a Yahoo Search widget, and its browser will run Yahoo searches by default. Yep. I think that's what they call a burn.
AT&T is late to the Android games, but they're making up for lost time with five Android handsets in the first half of the year. First up: the Motorola Backflip, coming March 7th for $US100 with contract. Wait... $US100?
These leaks supposedly show AT&T's very first Android phone, either called Backflip or Enzo. Aside from the odd backwards hinge, it looks mostly like a smaller, crappier Cliq - not exactly what we expected, given their stance on Android.
