Currently, producing fuel directly from biological products can lead to some tough choices. The resulting biofuel usually either needs to be mixed with regular petroleum or the vehicles themselves need to be modified to work with it. New research published recently details the work of scientists to try to avoid both problems by creating a biofuel that’s compatible with diesel engines. “Producing a commercial biofuel that can be used without needing to modify vehicles has been the goal of this project from the outset,” says Professor John Love of the University of Exeter. The study (funded by Shell), used E. coli to create the “bio-fossil-fuels,” as Love calls them, though this biofuel is a long way from your gas tank. It takes around 100…
Geeks rejoice! Hot off exciting news from SXSW, Google simply confirmed through the Google Glass G+ web page that Glass will, naturally, deal with prescribed lenses — that is, in future designs. The design is still in the works. Obviously the Traveler Edition is not suitable with customized lenses, but Google states to expect the brand-new design this year.
As noted in the uploading, the Google Glass design is modular, enabling a large array of options, including prescribed lenses. Revealed right here is Greg Priest-Dorman, a member of the Glass team and an early leader in wearable computing, putting on one of the prototypes presently in testing.
This shouldn ’ t come as much of a surprise. The team acknowledges that they comprehend it ’ s a vital design factor to consider. Since, well, a great deal of people have to wear glasses.

Motorola’s record on the whole smartphone bootloader thing is a tad spotty. The world has been promised unlocked bootloaders and, sometimes, the manufacturer has delivered. After the phones have already been on the market for some time, of course. Continuing that trend, will be the recently revealed Atrix HD. The 4.5-inch AT&T-bound phone will follow in the footsteps of its predecessors, the Atrix 4G and Atrix 2, by shipping without the ability to touch the kernel. Of course, that means that not only are custom kernels out the window, but so are custom ROMs as a whole. There is some good news, however. Moto indicated via its Twitter account that an unlock tool would be coming, saying “our goal is still to provide a way to unlock the bootloaders on our devices to those who wish to do so, more details to come.” So, that’s gotta be worth something.

Call me naive, but I just assumed that when Asus showed off a device called the Transformer Prime, they had some sort of deal to license or at least provide some kind of royalty to the Transformers franchise. Apparently not, as Hasbro has just filed a lawsuit alleging that Asus is infringing on the Transformers trademark.
Now, if the device were just called the Transformer, I think I would come down on Asus’ side here. After all, transform is a common word and although it may recall to mind certain memories from the 80s (and, to a lesser extent, the last few years), it is just a word and it also describes the transforming capacity of the device. But then they had to go and call it the Prime. What’s next, Soundwave speakers? A Bumblebee netbook?
No doubt Asus will try to excuse themselves by saying that both Transformer and Prime are common words that describe the device in question, which exists in a market totally unrelated to that of Hasbro’s toys and media. I don’t think that anyone will buy that, though. “Transformer Prime” is almost certainly a deliberate riff on Optimus Prime. And while Hasbro doesn’t make computers, Transformers games and accessories do exist for PCs and a judge is likely to agree that the whole thing is pretty blatant anyway.
What will happen? Hasbro is asking for damages and an injunction against sales of the product until they work this out. Asus would be wise to cop to the mistake, pay off Hasbro, and license if it can. Although the tablet hasn’t been a big seller, Asus has been pushing the brand pretty hard and will have to weigh saving it against paying what’s due.

The first UltraViolet-enabled disks wont actually appear on shelves till tomorrow, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a head start on migrating to DECE’s buy once, play anywhere platform. The digital locker is now open for business (sort of) and consumers can go sign up for an account right now. Sadly, there isn’t much you can do just yet. Though the Flixster app for PCs and iOS was updated to add UltraViolet support, there doesn’t appear to be anyway to link your various accounts (like iTunes or Netflix) with the service just yet. An account can have up to six different users associated with it, and you can control what content they will have access too — a feature sure to be welcome by families with children. If you want to be able to purchase your flicks once and take them anywhere, right now your only hope is UltraViolet and Blu-ray discs bearing its logo — a slow trickle of titles which begins October 11th with Horrible Bosses.
A communique from a “Customer Appeals Manager” at AT&T in response to a Better Business Bureau complaint regarding slow uploads on the Atrix 4G has surfaced over on xda-developers, and it looks to more or less confirm what we’ve suspected: the hardware’s totally capable of pushing HSUPA speeds, it’s just being held back for the moment. The rep says that the carrier’s currently “performing the testing and preparations necessary to ensure that, when [they] turn this feature on, you will continue to have a world class experience,” which would suggest that there might be some lingering network concerns. AT&T’s in the midst of a backhaul upgrade as part of its HSPA+ based “4G” network, so it might merely be a matter of waiting for that to go through before flipping the switch.

And here we were worried that Funai’s takeover of the US arm would lead to a falloff. Whatever its name or corporate structure, Philips has brought plenty of US-bound heat to CES 2011, with none bigger than the news that we will see the company’s sweet 3D-capable 21:9 ultrawidescreen HDTV on this side of the Atlantic in the second half of 2011. Today it also announced plans for a Blu-ray player with wireless HDMI, the world’s first (meaning you’ll probably need a dongle on any TV to use it until compatible displays arrive later in the year) but no surprise for an outfit that’s been pushing HD streaming for some time. On a similar front its MediaConnect app on new TVs and Blu-ray players will let it stream anything playing on a PC to the TV screen WiDi-style (video embedded after the break.)
