    I think it's what they need to do, even start giving them out free or almost free, as they'd make a lot more off the apps and services the same way that they make a lot more from the licensing of games and online membership delivering of content for Xbox One.

    For example 12 months live Gold membership for Xbox 360 is about $90. It probably uses the same resources as the free silver membership and the majority of people I know on Xbox have a gold, so they'll make a lot more off that, also the cost per download content. I watch friends just go I've got 20,000 credits I'll download this this and this. they can't remember what a credit point is worth as soon as it's turned to the credits it's just numbers on a screen.... Same way pokies did.

    Windows Phone 8 is picking up in use and I look forward to seeing more and more, hope it does a lot with Windows 8 and Xbox One, as my wife and I both need to upgrade from really crap Android phones LG and Samsung.

    See that's my problem I want a phone to be a phone and a browser and that's it I don't want to have to sync computers, phones, Xboxes etc etc. I've tried Android twice and it is just too damn resource hungry for my liking, if I don't use it and the data isn't on it should last for a few days but it doesn't Google just adds RAM and CPU sapping items so we are forced to upgrade. I have played around with a Windows phone or two and I really liked it but I still don't hear much in the way of positives about battery life.

    Hopefully they bring out a Windows phone with a QWERTY keypad but if the 1020 gets down to around $400 I'll probably get one.......if it fits easily in a pocket.

    I've got a Blackberry style phone made by samsung so it has a qwerty keyboard and just half the phone is a screen, the screen only takes up half the phone, not hungry on battery, lasts about a week just sitting doing nothing, I have wifi and bluetooth turned off. However it doesn't work as a phone, no one can hear me when I talk into it.

    I don't pay for data and am just on pay as you go text and calls, which means at present I don't need it to do all the browser stuff and need it to make calls. It's very frustrating!

    However I figure if in the future I get a phone I want it to sync with everything just to make things easier. I gather you can mirror your phone on a home computer in case you ever loose it and then just download the info when you get a new one.

    What we need for longer battery life is Lithium air batteries

    Better batteries through biology



    Published on 13 Nov 2013
    Lithium-air batteries have become a hot research area in recent years: They hold the promise of drastically increasing power per battery weight, which could lead, for example, to electric cars with a much greater driving range. But bringing that promise to reality has faced a number of challenges, including the need to develop better, more durable materials for the batteries' electrodes and improving the number of charging-discharging cycles the batteries can withstand.

    Now, MIT researchers have found that adding genetically modified viruses to the production of nanowires — wires that are about the width of a red blood cell, and which can serve as one of a battery's electrodes — could help solve some of these problems.

    The new work is described in a paper published in the journal Nature Communications, co-authored by graduate student Dahyun Oh, professors Angela Belcher and Yang Shao-Horn, and three others. The key to their work was to increase the surface area of the wire, thus increasing the area where electrochemical activity takes place during charging or discharging of the battery.
