A new breakthrough in the development of Lithium Ion batteries has replaced graphite anodes with silicon nanowire anodes. Not only does this allow for 10x the charge to be placed in a battery of the same size, but it is also said that these nanowires do not degrade like graphite. Doesn't that sound sweet? Now all I have to do is find one to buy. I really really want one now. If you find any links, post 'em here. Think about the possibilities here! An iPhone as thin as a Touch, a thinner MacBook Air, lighter and longer-lasting MP3 players and gaming laptops you can play for 10 hours before stopping! A new study even says that these batteries may allow electrical cars to have more energy density than gasoline-powered cars! For more information, just google silicon nanowire batteries. What do think about this?

No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land.
