I think Microsoft is going to find plenty of issues trying to roll this out in the US.
Given that glucose is what our bodies run on, I'd have to say no, sugar is NOT toxic to us. Is having too much sugar bad for you? Certainly. It's about balance. Too much of nearly anything (even water) is going to be bad for you.
"...the experiment provides a power gain of 12,400/400 = 31"
Well since the power gain was only 31, it can't possibly be cold fusion.
When they hit '42'....let me know....*goes back to sleep*
Current method of starting a car may indeed do so. (Mythbusters, find this out!)
The article mentions 'quickly restarting'.... might involve a different method for starting the vehicle.
Gosh, I'd hate to think what this would do to your car battery when stuck in NY/LA traffic or something....
"It won't be long before video from the Internet is always within reach — whether it's on a smart phone, a tablet computer or a high-end television in your living room."
Umm.... I thought video from the internet already was always within reach? I can get to video from the internet via my smartphone, iPad, AND TV already!!!
Logitech makes 'thumb marbles'...not trackballs... I don't care what they call 'em, not a single one of them are a full sized trackball.
Kensington's Expert Mouse trackball has always been ambidexterous and provides for switching the buttons in the drivers/companion software. Love these things. Have used 'em for well over a decade.
In fact, -all- of kensington's trackballs are ambidexterous.
Or, more simply put:
The products Apple make are the closest thing to 'appliances' you can get in the computer world.
Most people look at PCs as appliances, like a toaster or a TV. That's why they get frustrated and confused when something doesn't work like it always did - like a toaster. Most people don't understand just how mind-bendingly complex a PC and its OS is and that it just takes one of a brazillion things to go wrong and think we look like jerks because we cannot articulate why it doesn't work anymore. Apple's computers and consumer electronics are all about simplifying the user experence. To do that, it has to be limited, consistent and work the same way every time; otherwise you get the support nightmare that Windows PCs have been for a very long time.
Some people are fine with that... others aren't. The whole 'choice' argument against apple is sort of a red herring really. Your choices are: Apple and their appliance model or PC's and their DIY model. Pick one.
This is weird. If this is just a keyboard, and I should be focusing my attention on a monitor, then all the eye candy on the keyboard is really a fail. Switching keyboards on the fly is pretty cool, but then the upper screen should be chopped off and the keyboard made smaller.
BUT if there is no monitor, then I have 3/4 of a touchpad devoted to a keyboard, and I can't see a lot of my work above.
Even the Timex Sinclair had a better viewing area: typing area ratio. The keyboard takes two tasks and makes them harder.
Perhaps you should get your shocks replaced....
No, they wouldn't have to go with ARM. WebOS is linux based, they'd just need to recompile the kernel and libraries, and include whatever drivers are needed for the slate hardware. Oh, and a boot loader, I guess. None of that takes long to do tho - Hell, they might have already done it.
In fact, the webOS sdk runs on a virtual x86 cpu with virtualbox. It's just a cross-compile of the kernel and libs with hardware drivers for the VirtualBox hardware.
Apparently Apple's 'technology' has become sufficiently advanced to have become 'magic' to us mere mortals.

. Princeton University in New Jersey has blocked 20 percent of the iPads on campus because of "malfunctions that can affect the entire school's computer system."
In a report, Princeton said the iPad causes DHCP client malfunctions, which basically means the tablet causes interference for other devices using the school's wireless network. In order to prevent that interference, Princeton has been blocking the offending iPads.
