Beefy Batteries

According to this article, a group at Stanford has come up with a way to use Silicon nanowires to make batteries that hold ten times as much power as current Lithium-Ion ones.

That would make my MacBook run non-stop for well over a day, which is pretty much as long as I'd ever need.

Of course, with every great advance comes some downside ... I reckon that, with no concern for their batteries running out, people will inevitably stop using the power saving settings on their electronic devices and end up consuming more resources.
