> So far, all of his 72 contracts are foreign, guaranteed by letters of credit. None in the U.S. yet. What does that say?

I think it probably says that there is something we don't know about that prospective buyers do know about. If no one in the US wants this, then there is a reason for it. At first glance, this seems like a great advancement. Who wouldn't want to turn all their garbage into profit? That seems like a no brainer to me. So if we set up a few thousand of these, then we convert most of our waste into free fuel. Awesome! Its Back To The Future. All we need next are intelligent pants and shoes that shrink to fit and a cool hover board that glides in mid air. I'm not trying to be doom and gloom here, but I'm just betting that there is more to this story that we don't know about. I hope I am wrong, however, and that this ends up being exactly what it appears to be. If thats the case, then I hope we see more of these in the US.

Comment I'd rather see a guy play a song with just hands (Score 2, Insightful) 65

I REALLY do not see how this video is impressive at all. They play the same note and gyrate around. WOW!! Somebody call John Tesh. And why does it take like 20 people to demonstrate the 'One Note Instrument' on the iphone? Think maybe 5 people would have been enough? I expected these people to be playing different instruments (like in a real orchestra). So that they work together to play a song. Maybe a couple of group of woodwind iPhones, percussion iPhones, and some brass iPhones. When everyone is playing the same thing, then you might have an orchestra that would draw a 10 people crowd at the mall.

Comment Worst Interviewer of All Time (Score 1) 437

The interviewer is just terrible. How is it that this is the only guy in the internets providing info on this? Anyway, the linux distro in the vid looks like xandros that comes with the asus eeepc 900. I'm not sure it is is xandros but it looks just like that. The first thing I'd do is wipe that crap and install something else on there with an 8gb sd card or something. And once again ... the interviewer was just plain horrible.
