News: Google apologizes to its users

Google has published an honest apologetic message on one of its sites as they’re shutting down Code Search. You can read the apologetic message below from the Google Code Search team.



Hi Folks,
We're quite sorry about the impending shutdown as well, but it's a
done deal, unfortunately. You may have noticed that things were quite
passive on our side for the last while, and that's because we had to
fight to justify any investment in the project. People are also
definitely sad within the company, but it was decided at the highest
levels.


There is something of a silver lining.  googlecode.com will take over
search for their projects, and also take  over hosting the Chromium
search page. (If ChromiumOS or Android are  important to you, reach
out to whatever contacts you have at Google *now* and let them know!)
Not all the details have been nailed down, which is why we didn't put
it in the official announcement.
Our apologies to you all, for letting you down, and thanks for all of
the appreciation you've shown.
PS As alternatives http://koders.com/  http://opensearch.krugle.org/
http://grepcode.com/ and http://www.antepedia.com have been mentioned
by various people. We're not endorsing or not-endorsing or anything,
we're just mentioning them  so you can try them out, and see if they
meet your needs, and if there are others, please mention them in this
thread so people can easily find them.

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…
