Submission + - New Storage Technique Brings Hydrogen Cars Closer->

eldavojohn writes: "Hydrogen storage is a very important subject as we turn to find better cleaner more abundant fuel sources. But as the Hindenburg and the Mythbusters will tell you, hydrogen is dangerous. Recently Grecian researchers have theorized a nano-structure that is compliant with the DOE's 2010 goals of hydrogen storage. From the article, "The scientists' calculations showed that their so-called 'pillared graphene' could theoretically store up to 41 grams of hydrogen per liter, almost matching the DOE's target (45 grams of hydrogen per liter) for transportation applications." Hopefully it will make hydrogen cars fiscally sensible as well as safe."

Submission + - Abit to bow out of mainboard market-> 1

Steve Kerrison writes: "Taiwanese technology firm Abit will be pulling out of the mainboard market at the end of this year. HEXUS.channel, citing sources close to South East Asian distributors, reports that the company will continue to deliver mainboard products until the end of 2008 and will still honour all warranties in subsequent years. Rumours of this decision circulated in May but were dismissed. Apparently the decision was made in the last couple of weeks. Abit is a popular brand amongst PC hardware enthusiasts, many of who will be disappointed to see it leave the market."
