New computers come out seemingly every day with slightly more processing power and versatility than the models right before them, and before long they’ll be outpaced too. Imagine that problem on a massive scale, though: working at a research institute, and trying to keep up with constantly growing power of the behemoths known as supercomputers"

Techsplanations: Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles: "Consumers, however, often shy up when presented with the option of a hydrogen-powered vehicle. They think of "H-bombs," or the explosion of the Hindenburg. But that's pretty silly when you consider we handle 15 to 25 gallons of highly volatile gasoline in our vehicles now.
