H20: Go-Juice for Cell Phones?

Canadian scientists at the University of Alberta report the
development of a method that allows cell phones to be powered by water. The
report is published in the Institute of Physics Journal of Micromechanics
and Microengineering.
Driven by one of natures most used elements, the technology
could provide a new power source for devices, such as mobile phones or
calculators, which could be charged by pumping water to high pressures. (Source:

If you think the [regulatory regime] can keep pace with Moores Law, you
are drinking something.

For Your Eyes and Ears Only

Cardo Systems Inc. has introduced allways, a Bluetooth-enabled
wireless mobile phone headset that can clip onto eyewear (glasses or
sunglasses), or, using an ear-loop, be worn over the ear. The headset comes with
three color panels Platinum, Copper and Azure users can change to match
their clothing. Additional panels will be offered later this year. The
lightweight device provides up to 6.5 hours of talk time and up to 200 hours of
standby time, and enables users to be up to 30 feet away from their wireless
phone devices and still make and receive calls.
