Samsung's Wi-Fi Upgrades Promise Speeds Up to 4.6Gbps
I have gotten over 5.4MB/s Internet throughput with 802.11g with an Intel wifi card and sitting right under a Cisco AP. I also routinely get over 120MB/s network thoughput over gigabit lan using Intel NICs. It is all about using the right hardware and the right drivers and making sure that everything is configured properly.

AMD's Kaveri APU Debuts With GCN-based Radeon Graphics
No one is forcing you to buy a CPU with integrated graphics. Look at the high end solutions. This includes AMD's FX series and Intel's socket LGA 2011 platform. Both Intel and AMD know that people buying high-end CPUs will buy a discrete graphics card anyway, so there is no point wasting valuable die space on it.
Nvidia Announces 192-Core Tegra K1 Chips, Bets On Android

Ask Slashdot: Cloud Service On a Budget?
cloud providers charge dearly for this.
Not necessarily. FranTech's BuyVM will rent you a KVM VM with 500GB of space and 5TB of bandwidth for only $15/month. If you need more, you can step up to their 1TB of space with 10TB of bandwidth plan that costs just $30/month. These plans are listed under Las Vegas - KVM Storage in the order form. It looks like they are out of stock right now (you can quickly check their stock here,) but I think they restock all of their plans on Mondays. BuyVM has a pretty good reputation and I have been enjoying their service for quite a while.

Studying the Slow Decay of a Laptop Battery For an Entire Year
...it's near or total loss of power for a second or two.
A brown out occurs when the voltage drops. This typically occurs when power demand exceeds supply in a region. With a fixed amount of power being supplied, if the current drawn becomes too high, the voltage will drop. This will also happen if the power being supplied decreases and the load does not.
With a blackout, lights go out and dark places go black. With a brownout, incandescent lights dim and dark places become brownish-yellow. It used to be that most electric devices could handle a reduced voltage, but modern electronics tends to be less forgiving. AC motors and florescent lighting are two loads that have limited voltage droop tolerance.
