If you get a call from BT you can sure something is fishy as its absolutely impossible to speak to anyone at BT

Sokolik, when talking about emmisions you're missing one important fact, the generators used to supply electricity are considerably more efficient that an internal comustion engine - have a read here
What a lot of people also don't realise is that it takes a fair bit of electricity to refine petrol or diesel so in effect fossil fuels are used twice over when you run your car.
Mobile network operators are getting too greedy, telling you what you can and can't do with something which you own at the end of the contract or the renewal period.
Its time to seriously look at mesh networking for smart phones, with so many of these devices around this has got to be a viable alternative.
"The temperature scale simply does not end at infinity," Schneider explains, "but jumps to negative values instead."
This reminds me of how a signed integer is stored, for example in an 8 bit system values 0-127 are positive and values 128-254 are treated as negative - I knew it, we are all in the matrix!
I can't help but think that the objections based on seemingly loony concerns about radio waves and health issues are being presented very vocally to make ANY objection to smart meters seem rediculous, rational people won't want to be associated with the loonies and so will accept smart meters without question.
there are so many problems with electric vehicles - limited range, slow recharge times, heavy batteries which lose there capacity and so on.
And don't worry about fossil fuels running out because you can make petrol out of fresh air and sunshine
"If there is no control and vetting of apps then stay away from the platform."
You mean like Windows, Linux, Mac and pretty much every platform going?
Google and Apple do vet the apps that appear on their market places but there will always be a chance something nasty slips through. Unlike Apple, Android gives a warning when installing every app about what it is allowed to access.
Of course I'm forgetting that Steve Jobs is actually the second coming of Jesus and can fix an iphone 4's reception with just a touch of his hand...
Like a previous poster I am a car driver and a biker.
The £1 a day might not seem much but I already pay tax to the council, income tax, VAT on my car & bike, VAT and duty when I fill them up, VAT when I get them serviced or repaired, road tax every year, tax on the insurance.....
ENOUGH WITH THE TAXES!!!!
Battery swapping stations etc are not going to appear overnight and until they do the pure electric car just won't be practical for everyday use.
Thats not to mention that for power to weight chemical fuel is far better than battery storage - electric motors are lightweight but batteries are very heavy. Hybrid technology makes a lot more sense to me.
"Take away atmospheric pressure (seal the reservoir for example) and any liquid extracted via gravity will reduce pressure in the reservoir - and I doubt the syphon will keep going for long. Take gravity away (in space should do) and I doubt the liquid will have any inclination to go anywhere in particular."
That isn't a fair test as the air pressure would work against the siphoning action, the question is does it drive siphoning.
I am sure that the siphon won't work in a zero G environment though.
Because its wrong.
Ever since we started measuring time 12 midday was supposed to be the time that the sun is highest in the sky. As Britain is further west than europe this going to happen at a different time (obviously).
Also as any boy scout knows that by using an analog watch you find out which way north and south is - imagine what would happen, lost scouts wandering all over the country!
