2 Downers and 1 Upper to Start 2009

Two stories in the New York Times point to a Slow turnaround in the US Economy.

Steel Industry problems follow
the Auto Industry debacle

Malls and MILk?

As Recession Deepens, So Does Milk Surplus

You can't Make a Cow

like stopping an assembly line.

Anything Out There that may Help
the Start of
A New Year?

How About

Or Rather, a Breakthrough
Technology that may Change

A patent granted last month for something called an UltraCapacitors, which is a Storage Battery Replacement Technology that was orinigally created to power Uber Electric Cars (like the Tesla)

can also be used in Laptops!

Same Size and Weight as today's batteries but 3 times the Power and can be recharged in 5 Seconds to Full Capacity.

He also mentioned a Problem with SSL,
A Last-Chance-Kit to build a PDP-8 microcomputer in the
