Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute say their super-duper nanoscoops could make uber-buff rechargeable batteries that can take the stress of getting up to full power in minutes rather than hours. My G1, which dies in four eye blinks if its full fleet of apps is launched, likes this. He told me. Really, my phone talks. Electric cars like it, too. Now all we need is more plugs. Especially at airports. Most of my transportation time this past holiday was spent with a severe case of socket envy.
