Toyota fuel cell Car
2008-06-08 10:02:00
Toyota Motors has said it finally has developed a new zero-emission fuel-cell vehicle that has a longer cruising distance than previous models and can operate in freezing temperatures.Many companies have been working to create a viable zero-emission car running on fuel cells, which produce electricity through a chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen, leaving water as the only by-product.Toyota engineers managed to control the amount of water produced inside the fuel-cell system, which previously interfered with electrical generation at low temperatures.Honda's Eco-Friendly Vehicle >>>The International Energy Agency estimated Friday that nearly a billion electric or fuel-cell vehicles may need to be put on the road as part of an "energy technology revolution" to halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.Hope these vehicles gain much popularity and reduce the Green House Effect

High tech met high art late Tuesday when a robot(ASIMO) conducted the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.It was the first time ever that an orchestra was handed over completely to a robot and the machine got rave reviews.Both the audience and performers burst into applause after Honda's ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility) robot led the symphony in a performance of "The Impossible Dream" ahead of a sold-out concert."It's exciting to see. The technology is mind boggling," said bass trombone player Randall Hawes, who has played with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra for 22 years. The symphony extended the invitation to ASIMO earlier this year after Honda donated one million dollars to establish The Power of Dreams Music Education Fund, which will support music education to underserved children around Detroit. Honda has 25 ASIMO-type robots serving as ambassadors around the world and hopes to one day use the robots to help people confined to wheelchairs.Hondaaaaaaaaaa !!!

Social Networking sites now allow to share space..
2008-05-10 14:30:00
Social Networking sites MySpace and Facebook which have been highly protective for its users till now have loosened their gripThese sites have made it easier for people to share their personal information (favorite pictures, information and other applications) with other web-sites on the Internet.Both Facebook and MySpace say several weeks remain before their users' data becomes portable. The transition poses a risk for Facebook and MySpace because they are effectively tearing down the barriers that sequestered the personal profiles on their sites.Myspace has also become so liberal that it is even ready to exchange information with its arch-rival Facebook. Experts believe that this move by Myspace gives more oppurtunity for the people to join.

IBM's Race Track
2008-04-17 18:38:00
It was four years ago that one of IBM's Researcher, Stuart Parkin planned to develop a new type of of memory . According to his calculations this device can offer faster, cheaper and higher storage capacity than RAM or Hard Disk. Race trackIn racetrack memory, the bits - 1s and 0s - of data are stored in the tiny magnetic domains of a very thin U-shaped wire. They apply a magnetic field for writing data to the domains. Later, the pulsing current is passed through the wire, which pushes those domains along the track, along sensors that can read off the data.IBM says this technology could enable handheld devices such as an mp3 player to store around 500,000 songs or around 3,500 movies - 100 times more than is possible today.Well well what do we have to say about it !!

Microsoft's audacious attempt to buy Yahoo spelled out in an unsolicited offer shows just how much Google threatens the world's largest software maker's grip on how people interact with computers. For Yahoo, the bid represents another painful reminder of how missed opportunities and mismanagement combined to open the door for Google to supplant it as the Internet's main gateway, decimating its stock price in the process.Although Microsoft remains the world's most valuable technology company, its position will become more precarious unless it can cultivate a more loyal Intern...

A disabled American spy satellite is rapidly descending and is likely to plunge to Earth by late February or early March, posing a potential danger from its debris..The satellite, which no longer can be controlled, could contain hazardous materials, and it is unknown where on the planet it might come down.Specialists who follow spy satellite operations suspect it is an experimental imagery satellite built by Lockheed Martin and launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California in December 2006 aboard a Delta II rocket. Shortly after the satellite reached orbit, ground controllers lost the ability to control it and were never able to regain communication.Satellite contains Hydrazine, a colorless liquid with an ammonia-like odor, is a toxic chemical and can cause harm to anyone who contacts it.NASA officials say that "Numerous satellites over the years have come out of orbit and fallen harmlessly"Hope even this one doesnt harm Earth .Anyways beware !!

Mysterious Woman on MARS !!!!!
2008-01-25 15:04:00
The concept of LIFE ON MARS has been prevailing since ages but this theory has got a dubious boost from recently released photos of the surface of Mars (Taken by NASA's robot SPIRIT).These photos shows a woman like structure parched on rock with her arms outstretched . This news has created a buzz over internet n several sites have zoomed onto the image and suggested the figure could be alive.But astronomers say it is just a rock and it's hard enough to accurately recognize figures and faces across the room. Mars, depending on when you measure it, is about 35 million miles away. The best telescopes aren't of much help in determining surface features, and that's why NASA sent robots with cameras to Mars. The reason many people see a figure on mars is the same reason that people see faces in clouds, Rorschach blots, and coffee stains. This phenomenon, called pareidolia, is well known in psychology, and it is the cause of many supposedly mysterious and miraculous events ...
