Some time about the early naughties the Toshiba Supercharge Battery was advertised as the new sliced bread, and Toshiba said that in a year from that we would hear much more about it.

What happened to it?

Charging to 80 percent in 5 minutes sounds attractive.

Sharing this range with so many satellites will not go over well with those in favour of uninterrupted Satellite TV!

I admit that the beamwidth of a DTH sat dish is only 2 degrees or less, but with that many sats, some of them ARE going to go through the beam occasionally, and then only Sponge Bob will look right...

At some point we MUST decide to take away all human rights from people who decidedly do not behave as humans. Preferably NOW, while the numbers are still manageable.

We have seven billion people on an earth that can only feed one billion in some sort of sustainable comfort. Having many bad specimens around is not helping.
