We live in interesting times where governments are not afraid to go to extra ordinary lengths to "protect" their citizens, or so they claim. Countries like US and Britain, which were once a beacon to freedom and liberty now justify torture.
My question to the Slashdot community is what if his computer was an end point of a TOR identity. Real perpetrators safely sitting elsewhere. Are the risks of running TOR end point worth it?
TOR is an excellent excuse for someone from west, but say I was in Pakistan, will the authorities buy this or will they be too quick to judge and I will dis-appear never to be seen?

The breakthrough betavoltaic power cells are constructed from semiconductors and use radioisotopes as the energy source. As the radioactive material decays it emits beta particles that transform into electric power capable of fueling an electrical device like a laptop for years.
I have two questions?
1) It gives off Tritium (Hydrogen with two neutrons) as a by product, which is somehow collected in porous silicon, Will this explodes? If it does, you wont be there to sue anyone.
2) When can I have this in my Prius.
