The last words from a Malaysian passenger jet missing for 10 days were apparently spoken by the co-pilot, the airline said Monday, providing a glimpse into the crucial period when the plane was deliberately diverted. Clarification that the voice was most likely that of First Officer Fariq Abdul Hamid came during a press conference at which Malaysian officials hit back at “irresponsible” suggestions that they had misled the public — and passenger’s relatives — over what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah and his co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid have become a primary focus of the investigation, with one of the key questions being who was in control of the aircraft when it veered off course about an hour into its flight to Beijing.

You can’t always be at the top your game, and Apple is no exception. As we eagerly await today’s WWDC reveals, it’s fun to remember that for every hit there’s a handful of slightly more questionable ideas that just never quite clicked. Here are the seven of weirdest Apple gadgets that just weren’t good enough to make it to the finish line.

How do you get more +K on Klout?

The Standard for Influence

Answer by Devin Babb:

Simply keep signing in. I find I get 10 points every day as long as I visit. Don’t take Klout too much to heart though. In my opinion its mainly a tool to get an idea of who is interacting with you and give them some recognition for doing so, I recently disconnected some of my accounts from it and am throwing my K into the wind because it updates very slowly and I just don’t have the time to manage the service.

Why do you want to run a marathon?

Answer by Rick Bruno:

When I was 46 years old, I went for a walk. I had to drop our family car off at the mechanic’s garage, and did not have a ride home. It was a hot August day, but it was only a mile and a half from home, and I’d been meaning to get some exercise anyway … so I walked.

By the time I got home I was drenched with sweat, exhausted, but exhilarated. I had been a runner in high school, but that was a LONG time ago. I was 40 pounds over weight. I had not done anything that could be called exercise in years. Though I had never been a smoker, even routine stress was beginning to cause me some problems.

So, remembering how good the exercise felt, I decided to walk home from work every day. It was exactly 3 miles from the police station to my front door. So that’s what I did. I walked in all kinds of weather, just at a normal pace listening to my CD player. On weekends I walked 6 miles a day.

About three months into this I discovered my pants no longer fit me. Weight loss was not one of my goals (although it should have been), I was just enjoying walking every day. I did not think my knees would handle much running, but I gave it a try. I would run a hundred yards, then walk, then run some more, then walk, etc.  Soon I was able to extend my runs and shorten my walks. Eventually I was running the entire distance one way — and then it was not too long before I could run 6 miles without stopping.

A year later a friend asked me how many miles I was running, and it was 6 miles every day. He told me I should run a marathon. I had to ask him how far that was, and when he told me I thought he was crazy. I was by then 47 years old, no way could I ever do that (I thought).

But he had planted a seed in my mind - which is a very fertile place even on a slow day.

I found myself in New York City on a beautiful November day in 2001. By chance, I went to Central Park and sat in the bleachers watching people cross the finish line of the NYC Marathon. They looked overjoyed and exhausted — and very normal. These were normal people doing an un-normal feat. I thought, “I can see myself doing that.”

I started extending my distances every other week. Then I heard about a local running club (Chicago Area Runners Association), and they had a half marathon training program. So I joined up, and ran the Chicago Half Marathon in 2:04. It almost killed me. At the finish line I thought I’d never be able to do that TWICE.

And I was right. I’d never be able to run a marathon by training for a half marathon. So began my personal challenge to run a marathon before I turned 50 years old.

Running changed my life. My runs became the highlights of my day. It was a joyful experience. My running trail (a place called Yankee Woods) was my church, therapist office, concert hall, playground, library, laboratory, confessional, and launching pad.  Soon I found new friends who had the same aspirations I had.

I LEARNED how to run with the CARA runners. I learned about pace and hydration, shoes and equipment and clothing and food and how to run in the cold, and worse: the HEAT.

I would never have learned all that alone.

My first marathon was the Chicago Marathon in 2004. A few weeks later I ran the New York City Marathon. When I neared the finish line of the NYC Marathon, I saw the same bleachers where I sat a few years before, and realized in my exhausted brain that I had come full circle. For a moment, I thought I still saw myself up there watching.

After that, I ran marathons in St. Louis, Green Bay, Duluth (twice), Charlevouis, MI, Disney World (Goofy Challenge - twice), Memphis, Tecumseh Trail (Bloomington, IN - three times), 6 more Chicago Marathons, Rome, Italy (twice), Athens, Greece (on the “original” course on the 2,500th anniversary), then Athens, Ohio (just so I could frame both bibs), then US Air Force in Dayton, Ohio, then Cincinnati, Marine Corps, … I have other marathons planned. I’m not fast, but I am persistent.

In all, 30 marathons since 2004, not sure how many halfs, 5Ks, 10Ks and other distances. This is by no means a large number of races. I have a friend who has run marathons in all 50 states THREE TIMES.   

Why do I want to run a marathon?

It boils down to this saying I have on the back of my running shirt:

There will be a day when you can no longer do this. Today is NOT that day.

Some day I will be too old to get out of a chair or out of bed. But my mind will still be racing, pray God.
