Israeli engineer develops rust-busting nano super paint

Anonymous Coward writes | 9 minutes ago


An anonymous reader writes "a patented nano-technology developed by Plastics Engineering Professor is poised to change the rust status quo. The Professor developed a specially treated nano-shards that when added to regular paint make it five times more rust-resistant than previously. These nano-particles prevent oxygen and dampness from penetrating the paint.
What this means is that bridges, ships, pipes and other steel-based infrastructure, which at present have to be painted once a year, can now wait five years to get a paint job. The technology will even prevent pipe explosions due to corrosion."

LTE Hotspot as the only cellular service?

iamacat (583406) writes | 12 hours ago


iamacat (583406) writes "I am thinking of canceling my regular voice plan and using an LTE hotspot for all my voice and data needs. One big draw is ability to easily use multiple devices without expensive additional lines or constantly swapping SIMs. So I can have an ultra compact Android phone and an iPod touch and use one of them depending on which apps I fell like using. Or, if I anticipate needing more screen real estate, I can bring only a Nexus 7 or a laptop and still be able to make and receive VoIP calls. When I am home or at work, I would be within range of regular WiFi and not need to eat into the data plan or battery life of the hotspot.

Has anyone done something similar? Did the setup work well and which devices/VoIP services did you end up using? How about software for automatic WiFi handoffs between the hotspot and regular home/work networks?"

Another type of family plan lets family members pay for their own calling, but if family members sign up, everybody gets a better price then if they had signed up individually. Some solutions also provide you a burst on the expense of the cellular phones him or her self. Make sure you investigate a lot of these ideas very carefully.

If it's mainly for difficulties or random take advantage of the afore stated salary-as-you choose to go packages may perhaps be acceptable.

You could also purchase the most cost effective organize readily available. Some are as little as $20 a month.

Pay-as-you-go plans can get very expensive and it makes more sense to buy a plan that gives you several hundred minutes worth of time each month if this is the case. Another thing to explore relates to the selections. Does the program can come with roaming, drawn out-mileage, wording-text messaging, et cetera. contained? Are these bonuses extremely important to you? If they are then be sure to total up the costs of each plan.

Some comprise of accessories through the plan in advance cost, some don't.
