I had a flash application that made my old nokia 5800 phone vibrate in various intervals. And phone was small enough to fit inside a condom with some stretching.

You won't see something like that on your new hip iphone! :D

There's an app for that. Several, actually.

Depends on your definition of support. The planet can't suport the 6.8 billion people in existence if the had an American standard of living, but it can support a billion people with an American standard of living, and most of the rest living a sustienance level existence. I'm sure the planet will support 9 billion just fine, in the sense that a rural Chinese farmer is supported just fine.

The corn we grow for ethanol isn't the same corn we grow to eayt. The important bit is that it takes up farmland that could otherwise be used to grow edible corn. Even if inedible (it's not, this is edible seaweed), this seaweed takes up space that could be used to grow edible seaweed. Same problerm, different crop.
