For those of you who speculate about running GIMPS work without melting the phone. Now we just need a tiny, multi-KW-hour battery.
Demonstrating that once you perfect the leakproofness of liquid-filled heatpipes, convection bests conduction every time. Now to address your latter point, if one could kill 2 techno-birds with one stone by way of a liquid-battery technology which allows the entire battery to act as a convective heat pipe, that would be sweet.

Might simply be a kind of "dyslexic Mondays" phenomenon - When I first viewed today's Reuters top story summary e-mail, I was startled and rather amused to read about Powerful tomatoes striking in four central U.S. states. "Statewide pasta sauce flooding expected" as a result, no doubt.

[Nothing funny about the actual properly spelled tornadic events, mind you - and looks like a real monster just hit Oklahoma.]
