they're not being deliberately misleading and are quoting the efficiency at 100 cycles because that's what they've tested (rather than because, say, it drops off a cliff at 101 cycles) I'd suspect that at 1000 cycles it's still pretty good. (99% efficiency is good for any technology - 99.9% is better.) But as always with these new battery technologies it's wait and see.
but you might start by looking at the demographic stats in the country where your "perfect company" is located.
on a stick. But definitely no treat.
that Bert Rutan has/will invent(ed) a time machine.
Didn't you know, they outsource it to the El Reg headline writers. It's a nice little sideline.
Well if you wanted to be ultra-pedantic you could argue that any data on a system that is not (directly or indirectly) user-generated constitutes metadata but have an upvote anyway.
Who wants to see just the edges of a hot models?
Per ardua add alcohol.
that they were on the awning of the pizzeria next door (much more visible, easy access via the conveniently located windows, news reports are always wrong about something) so can we please restart this thread with Italian jokes instead.
the fuel air self destruct system. They do have one, don't they?
Well the paintball sentry gun in the video above appears to have a colour rejection mode so I suppose you'd just have to paint your dog blue.
if if doesn't work against an alien what chance does it have against a cat.
when Top Gear confines its insults to the Welsh.
"Fact is Hydrogen is the cheapest & cleanest plus fastest Tech we have today"
Pity it's efficiency is on a par with an electric powered steam engine.
Appraise it. They're probably working on sending a Death Star to disintegrate it. Can't have the price of a common form of one of the most abundant elements in the universe fall to it's natural level.
Don't you mean snuggled up under the covers with their phone watching Porntube.
The relevance of this comment is left as an exercise for the rader.
it's Lego all the way at NASA.
El Reg tries to avoid being sexist and ends up being (mildly) sexist and racist at the same time.
Cracked is actually funny.
Why don't I ever get the sexy female AI?
sounds like someone who would appreciate a bit of hot photon-on-photon action.
sounds pretty damn good. O, the joys of being fifteen again.
I'd let him anywhere near my balloon.
It's supposedly easily pronounceable in every language on the planet and isn't been used for much these days.
Unfortunately what it wants to do will be determined by its creators and in ways that they don't even begin to understand (cf. children). And that's reason to be afraid.
so it probably means they were really looking for $80M in cash buried in plastic barrels.
or even a prince albert. "No officer, I swear I was just unlocking my phone".
It's the new Apple masterplan - patent everything they think Google might be going to invent.
Some people are Mormons, others are Sufis but this study wasn't about that. By all means cling to your comforting consequence-free beliefs but the issue here is precisely that non-evidence based belief does have significant real-world consequences.
What I was thinking. I suppose that at four or five layers even a tiny speck is essentially a very thin sheet and has all the nice electrical properties but you're not going to be making a cat's hammock let alone a space elevator with specks.
Well, you're half way to aperture synthesis interferometry. Useful for increasing angular resolution of measurements. See the Square Kilometer Array for an example of the technique at radio frequencies.
Well since this thing is 3D it's probably the perfect way to experience having your eye poked out with the other sort.
cat videos, and photos of cupcakes on Pinterest. Probably in that order.
Something for everyone, really.
It was all about squeezing shit into bags. And pigs.
It was, of course, not relevant to anything here.
FOUND ON THE MOON
to remember the mechanical calculator - the preferred business machine for most of the twentieth century. Slide rules where for science and engineering types.
Chris Morris may be a genius but when you need someone to say "God Damn These Electric Sex Pants" Matt Berry's your man.
"Java-based electoral software" is a phrase that should never have reason to exist.
Nice plan AC. Edison famously killed an elephant but I think you might usefully update that with a giraffe.
and couldn't understand why the experiment didn't involve Bruce and Sheila.
works on a no win - no fee basis.
Back. Or so I heard, though I can't imagine it'll be for long.
Zombie Newsweek, just waiting for a spade to the head.
Shame about the headline.
1. The Skydrive case was a straightforward trademark dispute - nothing specifically to do with domain names. (Skydrive could have being at skydrive.microsoft.com - Rupert would still have been upset.)
2. Ditto. Companies need to protect their trademarks even if sometimes they do it badly.. (There's nothing ironic about competing interests - it's just how the world works.)
3. Get your own domain name - they practically give them away these days.
The domain name system is not without it's problems but it's nothing that can't be fixed.
I expected at least one penis pun.
(edit: thanks AC below.)
Are just the same loop of ooohs and aaarhs but with more accents. (And also the occasional mention of 'gros seins' but I wouldn't know about that.)
