New Rubic's Cube record

A dude set a new a new world record when he took only 11.13 seconds to solve a Rubik's Cube. 11.13 seconds! Hmm, I'm trying to remember the last time I solved a Rubik's Cube. How long did I take? Well, I did not break any records because I gave up most of the time. Guess I'm no good with cubes. From ZDNet:
On Saturday, at the International Rubik's Cube competition held at the Exploratorium here, Lo took just 11.13 seconds to set the world record for solving of one of the iconic red, white, blue, green, yellow and red cubes....

He explained that the solution he'd chosen--based on algorithms he'd memorized for solving the cube as it was presented to him--ended up not requiring a final step that normally would have added two or three seconds to his time.
