Practical Jetpack or Personal Tankbuster?

Slashdot is reporting on a Practical Jetpack Available "Soon". Practical Jetpack??? I think not. I'd say it looks more like an A10 Warthog strapped to your back.

Solar Power from Window Curtains

Solar Power from window curtains seems like a great idea for any home.

I just don't understand why they can't get more technology like this into homes. People are eager to live "green", why can't companies figure this out? Where are the plug-in solar panels for my roof?

That is the problem someone needs to figure out. How does the average consumer transfer energy from DIY solar to "the grid"? Most people are not willing to deal the maintenance and dangers associated with large battery farms.
