A new lithium ion battery killer has stepped into the ring. The new zinc air can store three times the energy of a lithium ion. It is cheaper and better. Let's hear it for the electric cars. This new advance comes from swiss. Happy to report that the new battery can charge and discharge many hundreds of times. An unusual feature is that the new zinc air is similar to a fuel cell because it uses oxygen from our air for power. This reminds me of how John Titor said that fuel cells were our future power.

OK as our commercial real estate market implodes banks have problems. Already in trouble due to the subprime mortgage meltdown the banks now see a new crisis.

The dollar decline is serious. The dollar is down 18% against the euro and with gold even more. Last year gold was $750/oz and now it is over $1000/oz. Folks this is like getting a 20% pay cut on top of higher taxes from uncle sam. Most of us had our hours cut, and cuts in our benefits and wages.
With the dollar worth less (worthless soon); I expect inflation to rise. Sadly, our gov is running that printing press. That means we have more and more worthless green pieces of paper. Did I say green? Well, the new orangeback ten looks fake - like monopoly money.

Little progress is made by a ship if it stays safe in port. Instead the ship must explore uncharted waters and brave storms to find new islands of adventure. Those that fear sea monsters and falling off the edge need not apply. They are the debunkers that ridicule anything new.
Steven Gibbs HDR unit is an electromagnet. Yet, it has properties I can best describe as most odd. Strange paranormal events happen with greater frequency when I turn on an HDR.

It is not that people no longer read, or that wood pulp had a high price. Here is a
graph of newspaper circulation. Actually, years ago, some say TV would kill the local newspaper. They said people would turn to television for their news. However, what got rid of newspapers was the internet. Well, one web site in particular - craigslist. Before the papers made money with classified ads, but now most people use craigs. With no money coming in, US newspapers soon gone.

Folks, that is seven, yes seven patties of meat on the Burger King Windows 7 Whopper. This promotional stunt is to create some buzz for Microsoft Windows 7 a big bloated operating system. Talk about a heart attack waiting to happen. If you eat the godzilla burger you will need operating as in a coronary bypass.

OK new rules with result in even more exec pay. I find it hard to stomach paying some exec 200 million a year to sit in a big chair and say "gotta make cuts!". I agree, we have to make cuts and we can start by cutting exec who do nothing for the bottom line. People, in the days to come, every future exec will have to work for a living. The days of sitting in a big chair looking out the window are over.

Back in 2008, HDRKID predicted that in 2009 over 100 banks would go bankrupt. Also that the FDIC would run low on money. OK as of today 106 banks are gone. Future of finance is very grim. The situation is far more serious, than we are led to believe. I do not wish to incite a panic.

People we are in trouble, microsoft profit has fallen for the last three quarters. Microsoft profit is down 18% and still falling. Hey, go to best buy today. There are very few people buying win7. What others refuse to consider is that we are still sinking. I am being proven right.

HDRKID is getting ready to release a new video of a close up movie of an HDR in use. Author Patricia Ress is working on a new web site about her life and an HDR. This is all, but just the tip of the iceberg. Plan to keep you posted on the latest developments in what is taking place in our little corner.

Ebay stock fell on weak holiday forecast. The company so famous for turning trash into cash now sees its future turning into trash. People are angry about new rules and many want to leave the auction house for greener pastures. As ebay falls, amazon rises.

The home price forecast is that certain areas will do worse than others. Take a look at areas with high taxes and unemployment like California. I predict foreclosures will increase, forcing the housing price in a downward direction. In contrast areas near DC see a lot of new gov jobs so house prices will go up.

Today we see that gasoline prices are rising. Sending a message that inflation is not in control. Last year I paid as much as $4.39/gallon for gasoline, then the economic recession cut demand so gas price fell to $1.39/gallon this year. Well, my prediction is that next year we could see gas price rise over $3.

People in California are heading for the hills - literally. They are looking for gold. The search for nuggets is strong now that the yellow metal is over $1000/oz. Sadly, many unemployed are forced to dig thru tons of dirt to find those precious few nuggets. The new California gold rush is power by a lack of money.

Google smashes targets on strong sales figures. This is great news for google, but those sales come from some where - as in less spending on traditional media. People, many companies are moving away from newspapers. They like PPC ads where you can track who is buying your product. I predict in the future few newspapers survive.

OK one of the big predictions I made was SSD or Solid State Drives replacing regular magnetic hard drives and becoming the standard in the days to come. What we are seeing is that SSD is the future. It is now very expensive, but we see SSD taking over. It is ideal for laptops because it uses less energy, is quieter, is smaller, and of course faster.

They say it is an elementary particle knows as Higgs Boson that gives matter its mass. OK science using LHC or Large Hadron Collider in geneva has not found the Higgs Boson. Perhaps the collider is jinx and Higgs cannot be found. OK some science says that a Higgs Boson would ripple thru time backwards and stop the LHC from even being turned on. Strange stuff to be sure.

I do not see an economic recovery, but rather instead economic ruin. Today construction demand in fastenal is down 42% compare ro last year. People do not appreciate what is taking place - a massive increase in green pieces of paper. What we have is orangeback monopoly money. All that rhetoric from DC will not change reality. Expect inflation to take place and that you will see more price increases.

Future will not have broadcast television, but instead distribution over our internet. Netflix says movies over web is the future. OK so forget, cinema, movies over a kiosk, or a video store. The net is my bet.
Future of TV is to be like a youtube clone, think hulu. John Titor predicted internet taking over and he was right.

There are those who say an economic recovery is the reason. Actually, oil is rising because we are running out. Also, a drop in dollar help push it higher. The problem is we hit peak oil in 2005, so petroleum prices are going up. Future price of oil is much higher than now.

The season if fall. A lot more than leaves are falling, as in currency. The green pieces of paper continue to lose value. Fall of dollar is sharp as rumors abound of Saudi Arabia switching from dollars to euros. This could send gold soaring. It is already over $1000/oz, rising as we speak. Yellow metal is doing max plus. In fact, gold prices in future are much higher than now. I predict we will see $2000/oz on aurum soon.

US Dollar Fell after G7 meeting. OK some say that this weak dollar is good, but actually this means that imports such as oil, 99% of the stuff in your local Walmart, etc will go up. Expect inflation with a strength few would imagine. Of course gold is going up.

Right now our recession is going nowhere but down and many are saying Obama's policies have failed. There are some signs of economic WREAKcovery, as in millions of jobs lost. The people who still are able to hold on to their position now see cuts in wages as well as hours.
This means they have less money to use in buying stuff. According to liberals we have too much stuff, well, the grocery store is full and the electronics store is near MT. Hey, so guess much of that stuff we are getting is food.
The problem is that we lost most of our industry and most of our product now come from Red China. With our industrial base gone, there are few jobs for the people and we are slowly becoming a 3rd world state. I see more scooters in the future as high gasoline prices will force people to economize.

Far into the future many will wonder about strange mounds of junk. It will be a mystery, the giant piles of trash an enigma to ponder on. Few will imagine that our civilization was so waste full - producing so much garbage. This can be what we leave to future generations, and yet it need not be so.
