Cover Entire Lakes With Solar Panels

The majority of our planet is made up of water but is there a way to harvest solar energy through water? Although logic may be telling you “no”, the answer is “yes.” SPG Solar has updated its floating solar technology, called Solar Floatovoltaics. The technology is designed to work in an irrigation pond, lake, or other body of water and is priced competitively compared to “regular” ground-mounted solar panel systems. Besides “saving physical space”, users will find minimized algae growth in the water (due to the water being covered, preventing sun overexposure). The technology is designed to last twenty years.

Think 3G, Then Multiply That 40 Times: LTE Advanced

The South Korean Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute claims that they (South Korea) has created the strongest and fastest 4G network in the world. Their new technology, called LTE Advanced, runs 40 times faster than current 3G networks. What does LTE Advanced let you achieve? Users will be able to enjoy streaming HD videos to their mobile devices as well as being able to play 3D games without lag. What would normally take 6 minutes to download on 3G will take about 9 seconds to download on LTE Advanced. It is truly the technology of the future, and I cannot wait till we get LTE Advanced support in the United States. If we can have more power, why not? The best part of this new LTE Advanced technology is that it will work with existing 2G and 3G networks. Now for the catch:
