Sony shows of new fuelcells

This is good news:

Now, can we have this in cellphones asap please? My New Shiny G1 (great phone, btw) is empty in one day and a half, at most… We are sourly in need of more portable power!

Designer babies are comming…

Although In Vitro Fertilizations were originally designed to help parents that were unable to conceive children naturally, Steinberg says that a staggering 70% of their clients have absolutely no difficulty conceiving children, coming to the Institute purely for opportunity to choose the sex of their baby.

And now, the selection-criteria are just expanding, right down to eyecolor, color of your hair etc…
The strangest thing is, that this can be done within he laws as they are at the moment, apparently. You would have thought that there would be a law against it, but there is not.
I’m not entirely sure I am really that much against it, either. If people are willing to pay $18.000,- just to be sure of the sex of their baby, why not let them?

Er is een besluit genomen in de Nederlandse Politiek! Bel het ANP :-)

Anyway, dit is wel goed nieuws. Het is hoog tijd dat zoiets gestart gaat worden…

One Third of Dell Inspiron Mini 9s Sold Run Linux

This is great news….

Link

Apparently, people like them, too, as the percentage of returns to the store is equal to that of netbooks with XP on them…
It would be nice if you could measure this by actual ‘linux-hits’ on sites, which are still very low…

Cursing at/in Twitter…

Gotta love this.. this websites shows the statistics of people cursing using Twitter.

Link

I’m still kinda missing the point of this ‘Twitter-thing’, but anyway, I love to mock it :-)

Are all those mobile apps actually used?

This a very interesting, an potentially depressing article for all mobile-apps devs:

Link

Apparently, (mobile) apps are not used a lot when downloaded and installed. That is worrying. I’m not sure I believe it, fully, however. I mean: I would love to see more detail to this report. For instance: how does it compare certain categories. I can imagine games played only a few times… (I’ve downloaded several games for the G1, and played 80% once – enough to see I don’t like them…) This is a interesting discussion….

Where is Android at WMC2009?

This is more than slightly suspicious…

Link

Where are the Android-phones? Is it, again, the invisible hand of Microsoft here?
