I can buy fluorescents and LEDs to replace 40 and 60 watt bulbs, but there is still no good replacement for the 100 watt bulb. The "100 watt equivalent" fluorescents are nowhere near as bright, and are so large that they don't properly fit in some fixtures.

TFA mentions a fact that I'd read about before, that the black hole's rate of rotation increases as it collapses due to the conservation of momentum. But since no matter can actually mover faster than the speed of light, is the collapse limited by this maximum rotation rate? Would the black hole cease collapsing when the rotation rate neared the speed of light?

"Windows" itself is rapidly becoming meaningless. In a decade or less MS operating systems will be used mainly by businesses and hobbyists. Touchpads and "The Cloud" are much more appealing to regular consumers who are really only interested in using the internet. And there is really no reason to use the MS offerings for these purposes.
