First, they drain down to empty in no time; second, it can take hours to recharge... them again. Well, Prieto, a Colorado-based startup, claims that it has developed a technology that could solve my two gripes, and revolutionize the battery market in the process.

Who among you first took the plunge with the original Motorola DROID? I bet quite a few of you. It was mine, too. I loved that device.

Fast forward to today, and we have Motorola continuing its tradition of building tanks, fitting ever more inside, all while keeping their iconic war-like-ready...

NEC organic radical battery

It’s not every day that I get overly excited about a new breakthrough in technology, a so-called “innovation” or a “revolutionary achievement”. Over the years, I have seen many things... that didn’t blow me off my feet, but today I have to bow in front of NEC.

If you’re like us, you probably check the battery status on your Samsung phone a dozen times a day, and breathe a sigh of relief when you see a green indicator instead of a red one. Consider... it a quirk of living the modern life, where one depends on gadgets and gizmos that still run on, unfortunately, on non-nuclear batteries.

Things are even worse when your device comes with a prop...

You know those free apps that you prefer over the paid ones because they are, umm, free? Well, not only do they force you to look at mobile ads every second or two, but, according to a team... of researchers, they also take a high toll on your Android smartphone’s battery. The researchers analysed how Android apps use the battery and concluded that the ad-serving processes that run i...
