Opera Mobile pops up on Android

Apps2SD

What's disappointing for me is that that 20MB only comes down to 13MB after hitting the magic 'Move to SD Card' button. That clocks it in as easily the biggest app on my phone (barring my love/hate relationship with the android Skype client, which regularly gets uninstalled).

Combine that with Android's slightly...err..."dubious"... low-space handling (e.g. disccarding SMSs), and it's still not pretty.

Usable as fuel?

So, given the atmosphere is basically full of combustible gases, could future lander-probes use this as propellant/fuel? All they'd need to carry then is a tank of oxygen (like carrying a tank of fuel in our atmosphere).

Oxford snaps high-speed movies with consumer cams

Old news day?

This is old news from a high-speed video point of view.

High-frame-rate video cameras (1000s of fps) have been doing this for a loooooooong time. Admittedly, that's hardly 'off-the-shelf' kit, but I should think it's a pretty good bet for Prior Art as far as the patent is concerned.

Obviously, this comes with all the normal IANAPL disclaimers ;)

Sony Ericsson preps compact Android pair

relative sizes....

The relative size of the micro-USB port on the back of it gives you a pretty good idea of the scale.

Looks like it's about as long as my Nexus is wide..... o_0
