lol I imagine it'll be closer to the DC equivalent of 220/240V...

If we can use induction charging for our laptops, I guess we could have a geek convention in a parking lot and just throw our laptops on the ground. LAN parties in parking lots would be cool. Just need some way for a desktop power supply to be able to get electricity from induction charging.

The pre has to plug in like every other phone.

And it was a horrible phone. WebOS sucked, and the phone had the slowest CPU ever conceived. Keeping all your apps open at once isn'tmulti tasking. It's leaving crap in you ram.

Its too inefficient. This is stupid with current state of technology. Even if its 90% efficient at 50kW charge thats 5kW going directly into heat... like having 5 hair dryers on full power heating something up - and hair dryers are designed to dissipate heat efficiently...

Most hybrids suck right now. We need series hybrid and I can't believe its taken this long to get it. Pretty lame.

Not true at all. Yes current biodiesel from palm and ethanol from corn are a gimmick. I hate them.

Cellulose ethanol and algae biodiesel are legit.

Fact:algae is the fastest growing plant on earth, is not seasonal so you get yield year round, does not need to displace farmland, and can grow on dirty waste water.

Fact: Cellulose is possibly the most abundant biological molecule on the planet.

"Cellulose, however, is contained in nearly every natural, free-growing plant, tree, and bush, in meadows, forests, and fields all over the world without agricultural effort or cost needed to make it grow."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cellulosic_ethanol

Cellulose is a polymer of glucose molecules. Glucose can be fermented in to ethanol. The grass clippings from every front yard in america could be turned into fuel.

Cool idea, lets see it in practice.

Yeah, I know, you said as much in another thread. The problem comes down to sustainability and efficiency. Regardless of where you get the diesel, it's an intensely energy-inefficient process from cultivating the source, transporting it, breaking it down/reacting it on a large scale and extracting the biodiesel, cleaning the waste, re-mediating the waste, storing the waste, storing and transporting the fuel, and then using it in an inefficient internal combustion engine (internal combustion engines that do not exist to a large extent in the US). It's a gimmick, and no better than using petroleum except it's more renewable.

If hydrogen fuel cell research were given as much attention and money that lobbyists threw at biofuel research (specifically corn and soybean), it would advance so much faster, and break out of the "fringe" tech that people laugh at. But the problem is that once you "solve" the efficient splitting of water with just light and simple catalysts (that already work on the lab-scale), there's nothing to sustain a huge industry like farming/cultivation, 'cause all you'll need is water (and whatever sort of catalysts that are needed). The biggest plus for hydrogen fuel cell tech. is that there's no reason for expensive and inefficient reactions to break down plant matter, store the fuel, transport it, etc. It all comes down to money and how special interests will benefit from it financially, and nothing to do with the best decision for more efficient transportation mechanisms.
