Such a phase change, (liquid to gas), can carry large amounts of heat away from hot components, but suffer from at least two drawbacks.
1. Once the coolant is in its gaseous phase it becomes a rather efficient insulator, preventing liquid coolant from having maximally efficient contact to the hot component.
2. The collapse of the bubbles of gaseous coolant can cause the erosion of the surfaces adjacent.
A viscous coolant which phase changes to a more fluid liquid solves both of those problems.
I don't know if that's what they're doing but it's a possibility.
Re: "just as F1 gave the world disk brakes"
OK, what about ABS Or traction control, both now banned? Turbos? Carbon fibre monocoques?
Not that F1 invented these technologies but it did make them practicable.

someone could do this with £50 and a raspberry PI?

If you're going to be pedantic at least do it properly.

If you're in England, you're already in Europe.

Only one commenter so far has mentioned the business/corporate side of BBM, which is where it started if I remember correctly. Surely, if their corporate software is up to scratch (which given the commenters comments it may not be), then this is the place to go for BYOD implementations. One messaging system to rule them all, any device, install BBM, corporate messaging done. No need to manage separate systems for android, iOS, Win Mobile and Blackberry, plus it's tried and tested, no new technology or upstart software companies to deal with. This must be the play, the yout' market isn't going to fill their coffers is it?
ok, so glass isn't a fluid
But if pitch is, why all the strange looks when I sing off key?
I can't believe
over 100 posts and no-one has mentioned enemy mine (1985)
Re: Where I live.
Same here in Nottingham, Currys, Comet AND a PC World all in the same retail park, (city center shops closed down years ago). No wonder Bestbuy didn't last long when they tried to join the party and failed to be any cheaper (or more knowledgeable).
A shame though as this pretty much leaves the large retail space to DSG.
John Lewis do do it right, polite salespeople, knowldgeable and courteous. People will and do pay the extra for good service.
The Matrix: Have you tried turning it off and back on again?
time and again the human race strives to achieve what one was thought impossible, only to find later that something on our planet has been quietly doing it all along.
I think the greatest thing man has achieved that nature hasn't beaten us to must be the humble wheel.
make you wonder why we bother.
in 10 years they could have selectively bred bigger trout?
or is that 'old skool' tech passe now?
super penguins, now you're talking!
