A ThinkPad Ignited in Flame at LAX

Yet another laptop battery has ignited! This time a ThinkPad caught fire in LAX airport. According to CNET the ThinkPad was a T43, which usually ship with a Sony battery.

Behold the new Ken Masters of Street Fighter V

Street Fighter V, which many fans are still biting their nails for, has changed a few things here and there, like the new V variable system. But perhaps there is, at least so far, no change bigger than the restyled look of Ryu's classmate and sparring partner, Ken Masters.

“Smart” lithium-ion battery warns before it explodes

Aside from the harm, or even death, that could come from those, they also point to a problem with lithium-ion batteries that exhibited elsewhere. While little can be done for a battery that explodes due to severe damage, in most other cases, accidents could be prevented if users knew that the battery is on the verge of combusting. That is what Stanford associate professor Yi Cui and other professors have sought to accomplish with this new "smart" battery.

Hockey puck survives fire, ice, and now thermite

If you spend any time on the Internet at all, you’ve likely seen that now infamous red-hot ball of nickel burning its way through friend and foe alike: fruits, random objects, nothing has managed to stand in its way. That is, until it met a hockey puck. Turns out hockey pucks are able to do more than take a beating from hockey sticks — they hardly sizzle when paired with red hot destruction. As an act of revenge, perhaps, the nickel-bearer turned to a more destructive force — but, as you’ll see in the video after the jump, a hockey puck is not easily destroyed.
