Newberry Volcano is one of the largest and youngest volcanoes in the United States. Having last erupted about 1,300 years ago, it consists of over 400 individual volcanic vents, which, when combined, form a broad mounded landform referred to as a shield volcano. The Newberry EGS Demonstration geothermal reservoir is being formed in the high-temperature, low-permeability deep lava of the volcano's northwest flank."

The versions of amplifiers within smartphones suffer similar problems. If you’ve noticed your phone getting warm and rapidly draining the battery when streaming video or sending large files, blame the power amplifiers. As with the versions in base stations, these chips waste more than 65 percent of their energy—and that’s why you sometimes need to charge your phone twice a day.
It’s currently a lab-bench technology, but if it proves itself in commercialization, which is expected to start in 2013—first targeting LTE base stations—the technology could slash base station energy use by half. Likewise, a chip-scale version of the technology, still in development, could double the battery life of smartphones."

How does solar power compete with oil? I can understand coal, wind, nuclear, and hydro, but oil?
You need to think a little more clearly on this topic.

Awesome this time they will be able to give a good warning... In the next three months while we drill into the caldera.
Problem solved... maybe they will manage to completely destroy all the people who were disatisfied with the lack of warning last time?
Definitely agreed - Patent Office = Epic Fail
Time for a revamp of the whole system...
Actually I think we would all prefer to see a real dismantling of the whole legal framework of what comprises copyright infringement... But fines for false accusations in this realm would definitely dissuade the accusers from painting the world with a WIDE brush.
I was not a big Wesley fan on the show, but I love his blog... and it makes me smile when I see the little fella on reruns.
