    Run DMFC

    The problem with DMFC fuel cells is that they typically run at 25% efficiency, and they require the methanol to be diluted with water, so they need a little water treatment plant to recycle the water back if they're going to use high concentrations of methanol. I work on reformed methanol fuel cells, which require a somewhat high temp (500F) reformer to convert methanol and water into hydrogen and carbon dioxide. For devices that require 10 watts or more, this scheme seems to work better- we can operate the fuel cells at 50% efficiency or higher.

    _Every_ laptop manufacturer is looking in to fuel cells.

    Hydrogen!!

    I thought hydrogen full cells were supposed to run at a very high efficiency?

    coke

    Coke's web site sucks.

    I wish the originals would get together instead of being opposites. (originals = Coke, Ford, Apple, etc...)

    Coke Site not for Mac

    I tried the site and after the flash into the page loaded but remained blank, it needs IE 6 which it checks for.
    In Safari do right click on any page an "View Source". Most sites like this will actually tell the user what the problem is and not just leave you with a blank page.
    Apple still waiting on iTMS in Australia, will it come in April with the Mini iPods?

    Very funny...

    Speaking about the problems, a Coca-Cola spokesman said: "As you can appreciate, being the first to do this and working with new technology there are often teething problems."

    Huh? We went back in time right...they were the first?
