Really should go to the person that thought up the idea of including SD and CF card readers directly on the front panel of my computer.

My life was improved so much by that little innovation.

funny, some years ago, I found that you could overclock some AMD processors by "connecting" some of the solder joints on the top with a pencil line!

they just took it one step further (I never thought of using scotch tape to protect my pencil line), not that it would have worked,because overclocked AMD processors get mighty hot!

Graphene is a form of carbon in which the atoms are arranged in a flat hexagon lattice like microscopic chicken wire, a single atom thick. It is not only the thinnest material in the world, but also the strongest: a sheet of it stretched over a coffee cup could support the weight of a truck bearing down on a pencil point.

What applications for this material?

What kind of truck? Like a Ford Ranger or a Freightliner?

I was thinking the inventor of the Harmony 1 remote. Very few inventions have worked that well, been that easy and made my life that much better.

Whoever invented the double bed ought to be the winner of the Nobel piece prize.

You could build a box that would be really safe for shipping coffee cups. That would be pretty important if you were in the coffee cup business.
