America's Cup Fail. Couldn't find the broadcast before the race was over. Be nice if they posted where they planned to broadcast the show.

Ya think they had time??



I agree - go frame by frame on ETNZ and look at the elapse time. It's only a 2 second window. Just barely enough time to kiss your butt goodbye and grab on tight... lol

Don't want to derail this thread too much but even die-hard android enthusiasts hated the X2. It was a hastily thrown together product with little to no aftermarket support from the manufacturer. I had three of them since they kept dying. The new androids (since ICS) are amazing, and 80% marketshare globally speaks for itself... (Apple only has 13%)

Best Android phone right now is the HTC One.
I'm using a HTC One X which is great but battery life is below average, a problem which was largely solved with the One.

I think the ETNZ nosedive didn't actually do that much damage to their boat, just some thin carbon sheets got torn up by the crew/water.

My DVR did pick up the races on NBC sports, but not the ones today. If you go to youtube, this site or the AC site to find the replay it seems like you always find out what happened before you watch it.

I got a chance to watch today's racing and I made note of a couple of things. NZ has command of their boat and are just light years ahead of LR. Coming around the top of the course, NZ nails the transition from reaching to running deep nearly every time. LR has a hard time staying on their foils. They have to heat back up and they immediately loose 30 to 100 meters. The second thing is that NZ seems to see the wind. They are just incredible in connecting the dots on the pressure.

Turns out that ETNZ's hydro issue was that they simply forgot to recharge the battery overnight on the boat.

Oracle looked a lot less dramatic than ETNZ even with a chain hitting their foils.



I can't find the videos of them hitting the bouy. Can someone link it here? I'm getting spoiled by this one-stop shopping for all that is AC.

For me at 58:58 it's all LR, finishing an interview with Chris Draper.

Wow, Gladwell is really taking his disdain for Team Oracle to the bank. Everyone does realize that it was less than 3 lbs of modification on one of the 45 foot boats and 5 lbs to the other, right?
