Yes, Mydesign, i agree it's quite a tragedy but I am not sure about the technology failure. The ocean is a vast and mysterious place and I am not surprised it's been difficult for them to find a jet, even as inconceivable as it may be that such a large thing like a jumbo jet could simply disappear like that. I think the latest was that there was possibly some contact with the plane's black box, but I need to go and read the news reports. It is indeed very sad for the people lost and their loved ones.

"The US Navy has sent the Bluefin-21 autonomous robot from the Quincy, Mass.-based company to Perth, Australia, for possible deployment off the Western coast of Australia, where those who have been searching for the plane for several weeks believed it may have gone down, Bluefin CEO David Kelly told Design News."

Elizabeth, I personally feel it's a big tragedy and even failure of technology. So far no evidence about the missing flight and not even able to capture the signals from black box.
