Solo sailing around the...

Frenchman Francois Gabart smashed the world record for the fastest non-stop solo navigation of the globe on Sunday, completing the mammoth feat in 42 days, 16 hours, 40 minutes and 35 seconds. 

The 34-year-old sailor crossed a virtual finish line between the island of Ushant off France's northwest tip and Lizard Point in southwest England at 01:45 GMT, comfortably beating the previous record set by compatriot Thomas Coville by six days and 10 hours. 

Thomas Coville finished his 49 days 3 hours and 4 minutes tour on 25th December 2016. Moments before crossing the finish line Gabart, a father of two and engineer by trade, sent out an emotional video showing his boat's progress on a computer monitor.

"The little blue is us, the red line is the finish. We should cut it soon, the computer says 30 seconds," he said, wiping his eyes.

Huge leaps have been made in that time -- since the record was first set in 2004, nearly 30 days have been shaved off.

The debut record holder was Frenchman Francis Joyon who completed the odyssey in 72 days and 22 hours.

British female sailor Ellen MacArthur took to the seas a year later, racing against the clock to break that record by just a day and a half (71 days, 14 hours). She remained undefeated until 2016 when Coville set a new record of 49 days and three hours which many predicted would be difficult to topple. 

Helped by good weather throughout much of the voyage, particularly during the long and arduous Pacific section, it clocked up speeds of up to 35 knots (65 kilometres an hour). 

Gabart set a number of new solo race records along the way, including the fastest navigation of the Pacific (7 days, 15 hours, 15 minutes) and the longest distance covered in 24 hours (851 miles or 1,576 kilometres).

The world's thinnest sm...

In the world of fast developing technologies, the world's thinnest smartphone had held this record for unbelievable 4 years!

Smartphone Vivo X5 Max has 4.75 mm in its thickets place, with the screen only 1.36 mm thick. Not only it is the world's thinnest smartphone, it was then also the world's thinnest screen!

Vivo used black technology: single-faced layout technology. Layout refers to the 786 components of 90% mobile phone components concentrated in a single board. By letting the layout of the components reach the critical value, the use of mobile space is more scientific and the smartphone is even more thin.

The other specs are not bad either: a 5.5 inch 1080p SAMOLED screen, Snapdragon 615 1.7GHz Octa-Core CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB on-board storage, 13 megapixel, 5 megapixel camera. 

This overall configuration is pretty good for a smartphone from 2014.

Even thought the other specifications might not be the best ones, the most important is the width of 4.75 mm, that was the thinnest in the world for whole 4 years.
