The HTC Incredible S does not run on the latest version of Android.As a result,while testing it,i found no issues with performance of the device. This is a nice and big screen phone and more important is that applications launch and run smoothly."

+ - New Process Promises Cleaner Hydrogen Production->

Submitted by fergus07
fergus07 (1145927) writes "Hydrogen is one of the big candidates when it comes to replacing petroleum, but obtaining it from natural gas consumes a lot of energy and creates carbon dioxide. A new process called "sorption enhanced catalytic reforming of methane" promises a much more efficient alternative by producing high-purity hydrogen at lower temperatures compared to conventional "steam reforming" while at the same time preventing carbon from escaping into the environment."
