WE'VE all sent a message we've regretted and wished we could turn back time. WhatsApp has been letting users "unsend" messages since October 2017 but now it is believed the app will extend the grace period from seven minutes to over an hour. What is the "unsend" feature?

The team at REMEX wants to change that, and for inspiration, it looked to the backcountry of places like Siberia and Alaska. That’s where so-called bush pilots make a living by bringing in men and material to remote locations in aging, single-engine … [Read more...] about Deadstick is what happens when flight sims catch the survival game bug
