Mini-Blackholes

One of my favorite podcasts, The Agony Column, has been following the news item of the activation of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) producing mini-blackholes and possibly cause the end of the world in the future. Rick Kleffel interviews the various parties involved:
  • Walter Wagner (pressing charges to prevent the operation of the LHC). |MP3|
  • Savas Dimopolous (Standford physicists, explains the theory behind the LHC). |MP3|
  • Rudy Rucker (SF author, his take on the incident). |MP3|
  • NPR Report (brief summary). |MP3|

Hi Nice Blog .If you fast forward through your play list, mini ipod battery will need to fill its cache more frequently, thus accessing the hard drive more often and using more power. This will decrease overall battery life.
