Apple iPad 3 Battery. Thinner, Lighter, More Expensive.

clock September 8, 2011 12:14 by author Ty

Apple iPad 3

Apple’s next generation iPad 3 is to be built with thinner, lighter, longer lasting, and more expensive batteries. Pricing for the batteries from the manufacturers will be 20-30% higher in price than iPad 2 batteries from Simplo Technology Co. and Dynapack International Technology Corp., which are Apple’s contract suppliers for iPad and Macbook batteries. The new battery packs for the iPad 3 will start being manufactured the first quarter of 2012.

The good news? Ipad 3 battery packs will be delivered starting the fourth quarter of 2012, which might project a new iPad 3 by early spring 2013.

Steve Jobs Shakes Apple to its Core

clock August 25, 2011 09:08 by author Jeremy

Oh boy. The picture above is enough to cause commotion in the stock market, along with panic in the minds of Apple fanboys (and fangirls, of course), all because a single person has turned in their resignation letter. Then again, who wouldn't immediately panic when the infamous Steve Jobs decides to step down as Apple's CEO?

However, some rational thinking might help people to realize that not all is lost with the company of forbidden fruits. Back in 2009, Jobs left temporarily for medical reasons and was succeeded by Tim Cook. The same thing happened earlier this year and Cook has been running Apple on a day-to-day basis since January 17.

Also, according to Jobs' resignation letter, he won't actually be leaving Apple. "I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee." And the Board has approved just that; Jobs' new position actually gives him a little bit more flexibility, while still having a hand in the direction that Apple heads towards.

As expected, Apple's stock price dropped by 5% overnight. But when there's an Earthquake, don't you run and tell everyone first before acknowledging that it was a 1.5 magnitude? After the initial shock wears off, people will realize that Apple is still making their iPods, iPhones and iPads.

While it's true that Jobs had a certain epic stage performing ability that may be hard to recreate by his successor, it doesn't mean production will stop. We'll see how Cook carries on as the new permanent CEO - he may have had the role before, but now he officially has the world watching him.

Check out Jobs' full resignation letter below:

The new AAA truck is capable of recharging batteries for stranded drivers of electric vehicles. With Nissan, Chevy, Tesla, and other manufacturers growing in the EV market, AAA is showing interest by offering roadside-assistance in 6 major U.S. metropolitan areas for the EV program beginning later this summer. The six major U.S. metropolitan areas covered will be Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; San Francisco, California; Los Angeles, California; Knoxville, Tennessee; and Tampa Bay, Florida.

The AAA trucks will be able to perform regular services that include traditional repairs, battery testing and jumping, tire replacements, fuel delivery, lockout service, etc. The additional EV recharging service will be able to recharge your EV in 10-15 minutes and provide a range of up to 15 miles to get you to the nearest EV charging station.

SEI's Aluminum-Celmet, perfect for batteries

clock June 29, 2011 00:59 by author Jeremy

Simotomo Electric Industries, Ltd. (SEI) has developed a new battery based on Celmet, a highly porous metal made from nickel. Due to the structure of Celmet, it has become reknowned as a current-collecting ingredient, making it ideal for collecting charges in a battery.

Celmet has been gaining popularity recently due to its use in nickel-hydrogen batteries for hybrid cars. And now, SEI has combined Celmet with Aluminum, making the material Aluminum-Celmet.

This offers a few advantages, such as the fact that Aluminum is lighter than Celmet's frequent-partner Nickel. Also, Aluminum is used often with smaller batteries, such as AA's and AAA's. Due to its light weight, it coudl likely be added to lithium-ion secondary batteries and capacitors to improve their capacity.

With Aluminum-Celmet inside of rechargeable batteries, we could see the creation of even smaller, faster-charging batteries for our electronic devices.

Helpful Tips: Unplug Appliances and Save Money on your Electricity Bill

clock June 23, 2011 00:34 by author Jeremy

Here's a fact people don't think about too often: even if your laptop's AC adapter isn't plugged in to your laptop, as long as it's hooked up to a power outlet it will soak up electricity. Sure, it may not take a lot of electricity since it's technically not powering anything for the moment. But think about that small amount your laptop adapter is absorbing, and consider that it's doing that nonstop while it's plugged in... you've basically got a power-leech right around the corner.

Now think about how many adapters, chargers, and appliances you leave in all the time just out of convenience. Scary thought, isn't it? If your electricity bill has been high recently, you might want to consider ways to take that cost down a notch or two. And just maybe, you've stumbled upon a few quick tips on how to do just that.

Computers: Whether it be a desktop or laptop, even in standby-mode these machines are still consuming power. Especially if you've got that brick of an AC adapter for your laptop. Be sure to actually remove the power cord from the outlet in order to stop wasting energy.

DVD Players/VCR's: Ever wonder how that DVD Player of yours always displays the correct time, even though it's not on? You essentially leave it plugged in just to have another clock. If you're not the kind to watch old movies spontaneously, perhaps it's time to ditch this extra clock.

Stereos/Radios/iPods: Just like above with the DVD Players and VCR's, these musical devices are doing the same thing while not on: consuming power just so that you can be ready to listen to music in a heartbeat. Especially with those iPods! Don't leave them plugged in even though they're full on battery: you're not only wasting electricity, but also wasting away its battery.

Modems: If you work the typical 8-to-5 job, chances are that your house is empty during the day. So what good is leaving your modem on if no one's around to use it? Unless you like leaving it on without a password for WiFi-thieves out there, there's not really a good reason for it to stay on for those 8 hours of worktime.

Now, I know this sounds like a major pain. Who wants to spend the first 5 minutes of coming home by plugging everything back in? Another tip would be to buy a power strip - rather than unplugging everything, just connect it all to a power strip and shut that on/off when you need to.

Certain appliances, like a cable box or washing machine, might take a few minutes to "reboot" itself; obviously, these ones might be a bit more hassle than they're worth to shut off, but that's up to the user.

There's plenty of other electronic devices and appliances around the house (toasters, coffee machines, lamps, etc) that could go with a bit of down-time, but to me, these seem like the major ones. So try cutting back, and watch your electricity bill do the same!
