What you are seeing here is a “death-ray” made by gluing 5,800 tiny mirror tiles to a fiberglass satellite dish.
According to my Source, it is powerful enough to “melt steel, vaporize aluminum, boil concrete, turn dirt into lava, and obliterate any organic material in an instant”. Believe it or not, it was built by a 19-year-old named Eric Jacqmain who wanted to prove how powerful the sun’s energy is.
Okay, point taken! Unfortunately, Jacqmain’s invention failed because it was destroyed by a shed fire that was started by its own energy. Jacqmain says he want so build a more powerful version with 32,000 mirrors in the future. Will that be more powerful than the sun?2

Toshiba has this week unveiled its latest 1.8 inch hard drive that could lead the way for a new range of media devices capable of helping you store up to 55,000 songs, 275 hours of video or even 34,000 photos in your pocket.
With Apples Classic iPod now looking a little dated with its 60GB of storage the new Toshiba MKxx39GSL could easily increase this up to a more satisfying 220GB, with a little help from Apple.
These single platter drives would be a perfect fit for the iPod form factor, and with their new connectors and offering a higher 16MB memory buffer the drive are less likely to skip when you’re moving about.
The MKxx39GSL series of 1.8-inch hard drives will be available in capacities of 160 GB, 200 GB and 220 GB running at 4200 rpm.
More information about the new range of Toshiba MKxx39GSL drives is available from Toshibas website.

Barely six months after crowing that its were outselling its selection of hardcover books, Amazon has announced that sales of Kindle titles are now outpacing paperbacks, as well.
The news came as Amazon announced its (disappointing, for Wall Street) earnings Thursday, with online retailing giant noting that since January 1, U.S. customers have bought 115 Kindle editions for every 100 paperbacks sold.
Meanwhile, Kindle e-book sales opened up an even bigger lead over , with Kindle titles outselling hardbacks by an eye-opening three-to-one margin.
Amazon noted that it didn't count free Kindle volumes in its statistics, which would have bumped up the Kindle e-book figures even higher. On the other hand, the tally includes hardcover and paperback books that don't have Kindle editions, Amazon said.
Amazon continues to keep sales figures for its Kindle e-reader hardware close to its vest, saying only that it had sold "million" of its third-generation Kindle device.
The latest Kindle was unveiled last summer and went on sale in August, with the cheaper Wi-Fi-only version selling for $139. The 3G-enabled model goes for $189.
About 810,000 Kindle e-books are currently available on Amazon, the company said, versus 630,000 volumes last July.
Amazon crowed that more than 670,000 Kindle books are selling for $9.99 or less; that said, many e-books on the are priced closer to the $15 mark.

I'm not that thrilled with this, because even as a teenager obsessed with electronics, I still prefer actual books. The feel of a paper book is more comforting, in my opinion, than a piece of plastic/metal/whatever the Kindle is. I don't think i'll be buying one of these.
