Re: I don't understand people who want removable batteries
...But you still have to pre-charge the other battery, which *is* hassle. Just saying that "I always have a battery pre-charged" kind of hides the extra hassle of managing more that one battery, I think.
Also I'm guessing that it's actually more that 10 second to change a phone battery if you include power-down/power-up/relaunch. More like 30 seconds on a good day.
You don't have to pre-charge a charger.
I don't understant people who want removable batteries
Why? I know lots of people with Samsungs and they never swap the battery. Why? Because you have to:
1. pre-charging the spare battery
2. powering the phone down,
3. swapping the battery,
4. booting it up again and
5. relaunching the app you were using...
...which is far more hassle that carrying a wall charger or car charger. Unless you are going on an expedition to the dark ages, you will always find a power-socket.
The SD card slot - May be. But the battery? After a 2 year contract you get a new phone anyway.
I wonder if *this* story will now kick-start to FB stock price. Something's gotta work.
"It's the size of a PC"
Does it actually need to be? I've started a Raspberry PI project for this already.
Re: Why should there be life on Mars?
"Mars dried out a billions of years ago...What an earth makes these scientists think that life will have survived".
Which scientists think that life will have survived????
The CPU is mounted diagonally?
The RPi cannot possibly compete with this. I'm getting 3.
...and how many times the size of Wales?
Please can we have all future measurements in "Wales", please. Use of the imperial "bus" measure is non-standard and frankly insulting to anyone under the age of 40. I was a child of the 70s and by then the "wales" was already established in geography classes when measuring rainforests. Anyone knows these days that 1 hectare = 5 nanoWales.

It's a kg!
Can't they just agree that 1 Kg is exactly 1000 grams? A gram is too small to worry about, so problem solved! Now the boffins can concentrate on more pressing things like the time travel, x-ray glasses, invisibility and teleportation.
