  • Yes, please

    A new battery developed in Israel with cooperation from US and Japanese researchers runs for “thousands of hours” on a silicon-based substance that degrades into plain sand as it discharges. So it’s much safer than current technology and completely trivial to recycle/re-manufacture once it’s dead (it’s not rechargeable, but given the other attributes I’m OK with that).

  • Holy crap

    Disney built a real Flynn’s Arcade with a real playable Space Paranoids machine for lucky bastards Comic-Con attendees to find. (This to promote Tron Legacy, formerly known as Tron 2.0).

  • That’s some Twinkie

    One of the casualties of this year’s Activision-Vivendi-Blizzard merger was the awesome looking Ghostbusters game. But now it’s back under the Atari label. I love this town!

    After some glitches, the Hubble Space Telescope is working again, and there’s a cool picture to prove it.

  • DVR on the go, sort of

    Users of DirecTV HR20-series HD DVRs can now watch recorded programs on PCs and laptops if you have a fast wireless network (and a fast PC/laptop!). In the future it’s expected you’ll be able to bounce recorded programs among your various DVRs as well, so you can record in the bedroom but watch it on your main TV.

  • What’s in a name?

    The successor to Windows Vista, codenamed “Windows 7″, is now also officially named that. Not real jazzy, but maybe that’s what they need.

  • Life imitates ST:TNG

    A London restaurant has tables that are actually touch-sensitive computer displays. They can show the menu on them, fake tablecloth-like patterns, and other stuff. (The “disgruntled employee” possibilities are endless too).

  • Buy it now?

    eBay is laying off 1000 people, or 10% of it’s staff. What boggles me about the announcement is that eBay had 10,000 employees. What exactly were they all doing?

  • The 10 most useless websites

    I think including Zombo.com misses the joke (and it’s easy to configure AIM not to pop up that stupid AIM Today thing), but pretty good otherwise.

  • If this works out it’ll be a nice advance, and presumably one hybrid/electric car peeps will want to look into as well.

    Yes, there is a new Nintendo DS. Now with cameras and an SD slot replacing the GBA slot (so no Guitar Hero World Tour).
