Do pony bottles make sense?
Almost everything that is truly important in life has a backup. Cave divers have backups for everything. The brakes in a car have redundant circuits. So why do most recreational divers have no backup for air other than their buddy? What if s/he is out of sight when something happens? Would a backup "pony" bottle be a good thing?

Oceanic DATAMASK with Heads Up Display
We've become fascinated with the Oceanic Datamask HUD that combines a dive computer and a mask. How how does it all work? Well, it's simply a case of the functions of a modern dive computer being built into the mask. If you look straight ahead, you have the same unimpeded field of vision as with any other mask. If you want to see the computer, you look down to the lower right. This is where the LCD screen sits, but you don't really see it as an LCD screen. It feels more like the data is floating ahead of you in space, or rather in the water. The datamask is not inexpensive, but also doesn't cost more than a mask and an advanced wireless dive computer.

We added a YouTube video page
YouTube is everywhere these days. Google has now teamed with YouTube to enable websites to include videoplayers that run YouTube clips that relate to the site, so we decided to try it out. Check out ScubaDiverInfo's Video page. -- Posted Tuesday, November 6, 2007 by chb
