This is a great article that discusses the physics behind energy storage, and why hydrocarbons are so hard to beat in some areas.
> The reason we pay so much for health care is because the recipient doesn't know and/or doesn't care how much it costs, namely because they don't pay for it. Likewise, they don't shop around.
It's hard to shop around when in some cases they can't even tell you the costs.
I had to go to the ER for a bad cut. As they were stitching me up, the finance person came in with a clipboard to have me sign things. I asked, "how much is all this going to cost?" She laughed--laughed!--and said I'd find out in a few months.
I looked up "horse ebooks" on Twitter and I assure you, it still isn't interesting.
Don't just say, "go to the library," give us something to work with if you are familiar with the topic.
You can use a USB drive via a USB on-the-go cable and a few bucks of software. It's not perfect but it gets me by.
We've already institutionalized "no joke" zones at airports. Unfortunately, it is only a matter of time before there are more such restrictions.

Your proposal is acceptable!
There are better options. I am always surprised that more people do not use the cheaper prepaid carriers.
I have never had my prepaid carrier raise rates on me or add surprise charges. And, since they don't have my billing information and the service is prepaid, I remain in control of spending.
Hey, they still have problems, they're phone companies. But after being pushed down the stairs by ATT etc for years, I find prepaid to be a big improvement.
I had 2 e-ink readers, and did like them quite a bit... but then I got a Nexus 7 and haven't touched them. The screen is perfectly usable outdoors. Not AWESOME... but usable. In partial shade, like sitting next to the window on a bus, it's fantastic.
Or, the makers of GloFish:
The good ole pen & paper business!
I used to work for a three-letter RPG publisher that went belly-up. As a line editor I developed books with an army of freelancers. These poor people were unpaid for their last months of efforts (as was I) and I have their manuscripts to this day... cool RPG books from ancient history that no one will ever see. It's too bad.
I tried to get the authors to let me release the books for free, just so fans of the line could have them, but most people were understandably not feeling generous after getting stiffed by the company.
I can't speak to getting fit as I never have been and never will be--but if losing weight is a goal, start counting calories. Get MyFitnessPal or a similar free app and log everything that goes in your mouth. This is something you can do immediately with a minimal time investment and it will make a big difference.
If I were Pope, I'd choose a sweet name like "Maximum Hammer." These guys are squandering the chance of a lifetime!
Chrome for Android is better in every way, except no Adblock.
Unfortunately Firefox for Android regularly freezes up on me, choking on pages that Chrome renders without trouble.
I wish they would fix things like that before working on the UI.
A fuel cell would definitely make for a quick recharge. I don't know beans about state-of-the-art fuel cell technology but I still suspect that the fuel cell itself would be too heavy for the stated specs.
However, the energy density of a typical fuel cell consumable, like methanol, IS a lot higher than a lithium battery.
Then again, this source states that the efficiency of such a fuel cell is also quite low.
So, maybe. Good idea though, I did not think of that.
