TTURabble Wireless Electric Induction? (143 comments)

Couldn't they couple this with the up and coming "long(er) distance" wireless electric induction technology to set up some sort of power transmitter under your couch/bed/recliner/movie style seating so that you wouldn't ever have to keep it charged or worry about batteries?

Japan Plans $21B Space Power Plant

TTURabble Re:Didn't Japan just come out ... (550 comments)

In this case, it's a terrible sign that the Japanese are so fed up with investing in the US that they now see hurling money into space as a better alternative.

Yeah, but we all know that SpaceYen is way better than Regular Yen.

Breakthrough in Electricity-Producing Microbe

TTURabble Re:I, for one... (177 comments)

Well if you broke it down completely, energy is never created or destroyed, it only changes states. So all the energy that will ever exist was created at the beginning of the universe and is simply stored in different states.

And all energy is atomic energy, the difference comes in how we decide to extract that energy.

UK Possibly Exploring "Google Tax"

TTURabble Backfire? (312 comments)

Couldn't Google et al just block the UK instead of paying the tax?
I wonder what would happen if the entire island was unable to access any search engines.

"Apple Tax" Report Backfires On Microsoft

TTURabble Re:What's weird about those Microsoft ads (993 comments)

Also, your average non-geek doesn't care about an apple tax or linux, they see all the "cool" things you can do on an apple machine so they go out and buy one.

Lets not forget that there are a bunch of people out there who call the Nintendo Wii "Nintendo Sports" and aren't even aware you can buy different games for it.

Ballmer Ordered To Testify In 'Vista Capable' Case

TTURabble Re:Hmm (235 comments)

Wrong, this is classic bait and switch.

You bait them with pretty pictures and a new user interface, then you switch it out with something that looks and feels just like XP. Even their new marketing campaign (mojave) pushes the UI with the "participants" talking about how great everything looks. I have yet to see a vista commercial that talks about the technical merits of the operating system, because your average user doesn't understand or care about indexed search or file systems etc.

Halliburton Applies For Patent-Trolling Patent

TTURabble Re:hmm... (244 comments)

So either Halliburton wants to kill trade secrets by forcing everyone to patent their idea or risk having their idea patented behind their back...

or, they are patenting the method of stealing trade secrets so that they won't have to worry about patenting their own ideas anymore.
