Submission + - Russia And China Withdraw Bid for Internet Control (techweekeurope.co.uk)

judgecorp writes: "Russia, China and other nations have withdrawn proposals to take control over the Internet within their borders.

The line-up of nations wanting to formalise their power to restrict the Internet included Russia, China, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Sudan and Egypt. Their proposal has been withdrawn without explanation, an ITU spokesperson confirmed."

Submission + - Nano-sandwich material claimed to boost solar cell efficiency by 175 percent (gizmag.com) 1

cylonlover writes: One of the main reasons that solar cells aren’t more efficient at converting sunlight into electricity is because much of that sunlight is reflected off the cell, or can’t be fully absorbed by it. A new sandwich-like material created by researchers at Princeton University, however, is claimed to dramatically address that problem – by minimizing reflection and increasing absorption, it reportedly boosts the efficiency of organic solar cells by 175 percent.
