Dear Santa, thank you for the dolls and pencils and the fish. It's Easter now, so I hope I didn't wake you but... honest, it is an emergency. There's a crack in my wall. Aunt Sharon says it's just an ordinary crack, but I know its not cause at night there's voices so... please please can you send someone to fix it? Or a policeman, or...
Back in a moment.
Thank you Santa.

Nanotech Bakes A Better Battery

Scientists at Stanford university have come up with a new variant on the Lithium-ion battery that delivers ten times the capacity.

That's huge.  Assuming they don't run into engineering difficulties bringing it to market, it changes everything.  It makes electric cars practical.  Gives you a notebook that lasts all day without charging.  iPods and phones can use much smaller and lighter batteries, making them smaller and lighter themselves.

Scientists and engineers have been making gradual progress towards improved batteries for decades; this in a single leap outpaces all that effort put together.

Woohoo!

Neatness!

iTunesU.  It even contains the MIT Introduction to Psychology lectures I'm constantly recommending.

Pity iTunes itself sucks so much.
