DailyDirt: Like Water Off A Duck's Back…

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Surfaces that repel water are pretty fascinating to watch in action, especially on clothes when possible stains are magically avoided. There are plenty of other uses for hydrophobic materials that are cool, and some newer materials are omniphobic — even superomniphobic. Here are just a few examples of these products that may be protecting all of our gadgets someday.

Whoa.

The bottommost item leads to this scary malware-site alert:

The link you requested has been identified by bitly as being potentially problematic. This could be because a bitly user has reported a problem …

The link you requested may contain inappropriate content, or even spam or malicious code that could be downloaded to your computer without your consent, or may be a forgery or imitation of another website, designed to trick users into sharing personal or financial information.

Oddly, it looks like it’s supposed to go to phys.org, a site that’s generally regarded as reputable (except by the rather overly-conservative Peerguardian, which seems to think it’s hostile to P2P but which is also known for producing frequent false positives).
