Jeff Bezos has applied for a patent for airbags for mobile phones. We are all familiar with airbag technology in cars. We could soon see them as 1.1. (OPTION) optional add-ons when we buy a new mobile or smartphone. Mr Bezos says the tiny airbags inside the phones would offer maximum protection for a cell phone if someone dropped it. The airbags would deploy 1.2. (AUTOMATIC) automatically after the phone's built-in accelerometer detected that it was falling.

The patent submitted by Mr Bezos contains other 1.3. (SAFE) safety features. He suggests using a laser or radar to work out the distance between the phone and the ground to determine when to deploy the airbags. Other 1.4. (SUGGEST) suggestions include springs that would be released from the phone so that the phone would bounce when it hit the ground, and a gyroscope that controls tiny jets of compressed air that would change the angle of the device in mid-air. This would 1.5. (ABLE) enable the phone to change its 'flight path' to ensure a smoother landing on impact.

Dragons' Den is a UK-based reality show series. It is a brilliant concept allowing aspiring entrepreneurs to secure funds for their potentially profitable business ideas from investors who are called 'dragons'. 8.1. E. In the show their task is to quiz the participants about their business concepts. Then each dragon decides whether or not to invest their money.

The show starts with the contestants giving a 3-minute presentation on their 'unique' business idea. 8.2. B. In exchange for the investment, the contestants offer a share in their business. If the dragons see potential in the presented idea or product, negotiations then take place to agree on how big their share in the business should be. The contestants can accept the offers or simply walk away. The dragons can also offer only a percentage of the money requested if they do not wish to commit the full amount, leaving the other dragons free to do the same. 8.3. F. However, in this case the contestants have to agree to give up a larger share in their business than they previously planned.

Dragons frequently ridicule the entrepreneurs for the overvaluation of their businesses and 'send them home'. 8.4 D. A classic example is Rob Law. He was humiliated when he pulled off one of the straps from the luggage bag for kids he was presenting. Not one to be put off easily, Rob re-designed his bag, correcting the flaws and has since made a fortune selling his bags globally.
