Google Cuts Storage Costs !

Now you can buy additional storage in Gmail and Picasa web albums for $0.25 per GB per year. When Google says about this, the storage is shared between Gmail and Picasa Web albums, but it is obvious that the additional storage will be mostly used in Google Docs, whenever the service morphs into Google Drive. Although the storage costs are reduced, yet Google has been working hard to improve its infrastructure to reduce the costs even more. Moreover, this process is to make the extra storage more affordable, but you can buy 20GB for only $5 per year. It is as much as twice for a quarter of the old price and you can have enough space for more than 10,000 full resolution pictures taken with a five megapixel camera.

If you purchased storage before November 10, 2009:
•    Your total storage will be increased according to the table below at no extra cost. For example, if you had previously purchased 10 GB of Google storage, you now have 80 GB available.
•    Your plan renewal date will not change. It will renew based on your preferences one year from your previous purchase date. Unless you manually adjust your plan, you'll be renewed for the new storage amount at the new cost as shown below.
If you purchased your storage within 30 days of this change - between October 10, 2009 and November 10, 2009 - you can contact Google in your plan and/or a refund of the price difference.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…
