If I'm using an external mouse, keyboard and monitor, why am I bothering with a laptop in the first place?

So that I have choice! At work my laptop is plugged into external devices, including a 20" monitor. At the end of the work day, I just pick it up and take it home, and sit with it on the couch to surf the web. Try do that with a desktop!


OLED Film Could Provide Cheap Night Vision For Cars 120

thecarchik writes "Night vision systems are already available in the higher-end luxury sedans from companies like Toyota, Volvo, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz. It's expensive technology that few drivers can afford, and at $4,000 for the system without a display, it's a pricey upgrade. That may all change soon, as DARPA-funded scientists have developed a cheap way to turn any infrared light into visible light with a thin film."

The earth is like a tiny grain of sand, only much, much heavier.
