Next-generation lithium cells will double your phone's battery life
Jul 28, 2014 - 11:46 PM - by ekim68
The lithium ion batteries in your mobile devices are inherently limited by the "ion" part of their name; they can safely use lithium only in the part of the cell that supplies ions, wasting a lot of potential energy. It's good news, then, that researchers at Stanford have developed a new lithium battery that could last for much, much longer. The technique allows for denser, more efficient lithium in the battery's anode (which discharges electrons) by using a nanoscopic carbon shield that keeps the unstable chemical in check -- uncontrolled, it can quickly shorten the device's lifespan.

The 'Fingerprinting' Tracking Tool That's Virtually Impossible to Block

The 'Fingerprinting' Tracking Tool That's Virtually Impossible to Block

A new, extremely persistent type of online tracking is shadowing visitors to thousands of top websites.

The type of tracking, called canvas fingerprinting, works by instructing the visitor’s web browser to draw a hidden image, and was first documented in a upcoming paper by researchers at Princeton University and KU Leuven University in Belgium. Because each computer draws the image slightly differently, the images can be used to assign each user’s device a number that uniquely identifies it.

Like other tracking tools, canvas fingerprints are used to build profiles of users based on the websites they visit — profiles that shape which ads, news articles or other types of content are displayed to them.

Chrome's been eating your laptop's battery for years, but Google promises to fix it
Jul 19, 2014 - 12:01 AM - by ekim68
Google is just now responding to a bug in Chrome for Windows that may have been sapping users' batteries for years.

Chrome's battery drain problem was brought to wider attention by Forbes contributor Ian Morris, who noticed that Chrome for Windows was using considerably more power than other browsers.

The issue, he wrote, is that Chrome doesn't return the system's processor to an idle state when it's not doing anything. Instead, Chrome sets a high “system clock tick rate” of 1 millisecond, and leaves it at that rate, even if the browser's just running the background.
