New Raspberry Pi Model B+

Aardpig More power to the USB ports? (202 comments)

The addition of 2 extra USB ports is useless, unless they have changed the polyfuse set up to allow more power to be delivered to the ports. As things currently stand with the original model B, attaching anything more than a low-power keyboard to the Pi requires a powered hub -- the Pi itself can't deliver the required juice. It would be great if this restriction were lifted.

Aardpig Re:Spinny-Chair (482 comments)

How about Natalie Portman in a vat of hot grits spinning on an office chair? When she farts and creates a gaseous void near her well-formed posterior, what happens to the rotation rate of the chair?

Wow, insightful post! You should email them right away, EmagGeek, since I'm sure they've completely overlooked this and other effects that random Slashdot douches such as yourself might think up on the spur of the moment!

Israeli Firm Makes Kilomile Claims For Electric Car Battery Tech

Aardpig Re:batteries are not rechargable (247 comments)

Hang on a sec; the *battery* contains 55lb of Al, and the *battery* provides power for 1,000 miles. So, that translates to 0.055 lb/mile, which is significantly smaller than gasoline.
