My favorite news articles from the ridiculous 265+ RSS feeds in my newsreader and anywhere else unfortunate enough to capture my attention during the slower parts of any given day. If you don’t think I’m reading it already leave me a comment and I may add it to my daily news habit.
New items for January 9, 2010:
[CES 2010] RCA Airnergy Charger Harvests Electricity From WiFi Signals Ok, you have my attention. In a WiFi saturated city like Seattle, maybe have this built into a messenger bag along with a high capacity battery to store the “harvest”.
