This is rather more than groove, actually. I use groove at work, and while it's nice, it doesn't allow the kind of real-time collaboration on documents that wave will. Both people can be editing a document simultaneously, and both see the changes each other is making appear in the doc in real-ish time (if the demo can be believed, It'll be interesting to see how high latency links play with this).

That aspect is what excites me about this tech. It's been done before (as a plugin for word, even), but not in such an accessible way.


Submission Hydrogen turbines generate clean electricity

Roland Piquepaille writes: "The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBL) has developed near-zero-emission gas turbines using pure hydrogen as a fuel. But because this LSI (low-swirl injector) technology also can use other fuels, it has the potential to help eliminate millions of tons of carbon dioxide and thousands of tons of nitrous oxides (NOx) from power plants each year. In fact, burners with the LSI emit 2 parts per million of NOx, more than five times less than conventional burners. The multi-patented technology is currently available for licensing. I sure hope that a utility company will be interested. But read more for many additional references and photographs comparing a high-swirl injector (HIS) and a low-swirl injector (LSI)."

This is exactly what client certs were invented for. Using https with client & server certs allows the client to authenticate the server, and vice versa. It would be pretty easy for Nintendo to issue a cert for every Wii.

The only issue might be the extra CPU involved in using SSL, but if they're going to be preventing loss of revenue I can see the accountants springing for the extra hardware :)
