I neither can agree with you, nor deny what you said. It's like.. you see both extremities here.
Things have really improved and it's not at all like what people in other countries think. Media nowdays draw gruesome pictures and people believe everything .__.

No matter how much India progresses, it will always be light years behind the US (considering rate of advancement in technology). In my college, the research kits are of 1996 and computers are Win 98 with 64Mb RAM fml. If you want a better career, go to the US.

Hey kdealltheway, did you even bother to read the article? She's an American living in the U.S., not in India.

Yeah, I've bothered. I was responding to eisenbricher, not directly to an article.

God I hope she can patent that, I have a feeling since Intel sponsored the event, they take the patent. Hope I'm wrong.

Intel may file the patent but i'm sure that she will be allowed to put her name on the patent and she will recieve some of the patent income.

I thought the capacitor would be replacing the battery not being used to "recharge a cell phone battery" but i could be wrong.
