Today’s news and reviews episode has some great stuff from around the web. My goal with these episodes is to let you know about the latest technology trends, developments and resources in technology that would appeal to a “high tech prepper”. Today you’ll hear me talk about:
- Low powered, desktop PCs so small you can hide them behind a monitor.
- An article about a great AAA LED flashlight from 4Sevens.
- A kit for a DIY, portable, battery powered cell phone charger.
- An awesome video about how a lead-acid battery works. (ok … I’m a geek and I thought it was awesome!)
- Scientists at Stanford University develop a way to charge Edison batteries 1,000 times faster.
- Bicycle powered computing!
I also give a quick review of two open source apps for editing and managing your ebook collection.
