Soon you could be running your laptop computer all day without a recharge as commercial versions of fuel cells go on sale.

At the Cebit technology fair in Hanover, Taiwanese hi-tech firm Antig said its fuel cells should be on the shelves of computer shops by early 2007.

Yeah, just like all the rude idiots using cel phones these days. I am close to grabbing a cel phone out of someone's hand and slamming it to the ground and stomping on it.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Finally laptops may get the sort of battery life that I take for granted with my Psion Netbook (which basically means that I don't have to constantly watch the battery guage, and typically forget about it completely for the whole day).

@zerohero

It's talking about a battery, that uses methanol fuel. Not the Cell CPU.

I used to use Methanol in my speedway bike.

Splash it on your skin and its ice cold ...It burns with an invisible flame.

Methanol also goes by another name.

Dope.
