Tobacco Virus Could Boost Li Batteries

greenskyx Re:10-fold increase? (161 comments)

It's especially good because electric vehicles are around 4x as efficient as internal combustion engines. The Leaf uses larger flat sheets of batteries to increase their ability to release excess heat.

greenskyx Re:What about ROKU? (403 comments)

Good point, if you have a bad internet connection Roku would not be a good candidate for you. Sorry to hear that.

greenskyx What about ROKU? (403 comments)

Or if you don't want to build your own, what about Roku? Their lowest box is almost 1/2 the cost of the Apple TV. For $60 you get a pretty nice box.

Agreed. Miguel rocks. Just look at how well Mono is doing. It's being widely used to write iPhone/pod/pad applications with MonoTouch and it they are extending the tool so it can write Android applications as well.

Google Preparing iPad Rival?

greenskyx Re:Adam or Dell mini 5 (397 comments)

The mini 5 looks appealing because it's Android and because it would fit in a larger pants pocket. The Adam because of the screen, the camera and it looks like a nice tablet. Both of them because of Android.

How To Teach Programming To Kids, Via XBox

greenskyx Re:programming without typing? (124 comments)

Sweet. I started on a TI-82 sometime around then too. My first program was a Russian roulette program where the user had to pick 1-6 and if they picked the wrong number they died. Since I didn't know how to generate a random number, I hard coded the "kill" number in. After I figured out how to generate a random number I didn't look back. I agree, give coders a language/environment they can easily jump into and they will get it. :D
