Two more scoops

The BBC has been given an exclusive look at a new kind of battery charger that can recharge a modern smartphone in less time than it takes to boil a kettle. The technology has been developed by Israeli start-up Storedot. The company's chief executive, Doron Myersdorf, showed the BBC's Leo Kelion how a smartphone could be recharged from being nearly out-of-juice to full capacity in a short space of time.

Just extraordinary: an exhibitor at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas demonstrates his new gizmo to the BBC and then disappears from the sight of all other journalists....

Recovery teams looking for bodies and wreckage from the AirAsia flight that crashed last week say they may have spotted what could be the tail section of the plane, where the crucial "black box" flight recorders are located... The BBC's Kiki Siregar has had exclusive access to a Russian search plane.

Those naughty Russians wouldn't want anything in the world's media that might show them in a good light, but the BBC made them see sense.
