MIT Prints Durable Solar Cells On Paper

Okay, so it might sound a bit counter intuitive to print solar cells on paper. After all, isn’t the whole purpose of solar technology so we can print less paper and save more trees from being destroyed?

Well maybe so, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find other applications for solar celled paper. MIT has been working on this project since last year, and the findings are quite incredible. The paper itself is an ordinary sheet of paper with a fine layer of colored rectangles, that, when connected to a few designated wires, generates solar electricity.

Skype Vulnerability Exposed On Android Devices

There are over ten million users for Skype, that’s quite a large number. Android Police recently dismantled the application and discovered how easy it was to extract data from the application. Android Police discovered that one’s username, profile, contacts, as well as chat logs could easily be extracted due to Skype’s use of an unprotected database.

Verizon Will Not Have iPhone5

A phone conversation with Enrico Salvatori, Qualcomm’s VP, has convinced ITProPortal that there will not be an iPhone5 for the Verizon platform.
