Submission Burning salt water - the ultimate in green fuel?->

Z0mb1eman writes: "According to this article, "An Erie cancer researcher has found a way to burn salt water, a novel invention that is being touted by one chemist as the "most remarkable" water science discovery in a century. Rustum Roy, a Penn State University chemist, has held demonstrations at his State College lab to confirm his own observations. The scientists want to find out whether the energy output from the burning hydrogen — which reached a heat of more than 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit — would be enough to power a car or other heavy machinery.""

Submission Canadian company joins iPhone trademark row

Z0mb1eman writes: "Canadian newspapers are reporting that a Toronto company has been using the iPhone brand for voice-over-IP services since 2004, before Appple applied for the iPhone trademark.

"There's no confirmed reports that Apple will launch iPhone in Canada," [Comwave president Yuval Barzakay] said in an interview. "And there's no trademark designation on their iPhone logo. So we're not quite sure where they're headed with that."

It will be interesting to see how this will affect Apple's iPhone rollout in Canada, for which a date hasn't been announced yet."
