SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by InsuranceChicken.com
20 years of trying to prove itself, Segway is finally calling it
quits this July, Fast Company reports. When it launched, the
two-wheeled scootin’ device was supposed to disrupt urban transport
like the car did horse-drawn buggies. Steve Jobs said it was the
biggest product since the PC, but at $5,000, no one bit. Inventor
Dean Kamen expected up to 100,000 unit sales its first 13 months, but
the Segway only sold about 140,000 in its history. Some cities banned
Segways for easily spinning out of control and crashing. Kamen sold
Segway in 2009 to investor Jim Heselden, who tragically died months
later after driving his Segway off a cliff. It was sold again, then
again to Chinese mobility company Ninebot.

Jupiter's red spot is getting taller and smaller at the same time. Jupiter's red spot is almost as well-known as the planet's remarkable rings. But the spot, which is, in fact, a storm, has been shrinking for a century and a half. Although NASA can't predict what will happen to the storm that was "once big enough to swallow three Earths with room to spare," they do know that it "seems to have increased in area at least once along the way, and it's growing taller as it gets smaller."

Scottish man was taken to court and fined for calling his
ex-girlfriend's new Irish boyfriend a “leprechaun” in a
threatening email. 41-year-old Terry Myers appeared in Aberdeen
Sheriff Court after he sent his ex-partner an email which made

Myers made “various threats to assault” the woman's new partner
in the email. Love additionally said that Myers referred to the new
