Tesla CEO Elon Musk says Tesla will demo battery swap technology at its design studio near LA on Thursday night.
Can one chip make a difference in your laptop's battery life? Yup, and hopefully it comes to Chromebooks soon. Data from connected pets can help their health while Sony countered Microsoft well with its new PS4.
VC-backed LED startup Luminus Devices has been sold off to a Chinese lighting company. Following in the footsteps of solar, electric cars, and batteries, LED technology is now also getting bought up by Chinese players.
Cloud-based business software can save significant energy, according to a new report from Berkeley Lab. To prove this the researchers built a model that crunches the data around the cloud and energy.
Most connected vehicle technologies have focused squarely on the car, but BMW and Honda are working with the University of MIchigan and Cohda Wireless to develop autonomous driving technologies that work on two wheels.
New Texas Instruments chipsets won't help your device run longer on a single charge, but they will allow for 30 percent faster recharging. And the Li-Ion battery in your mobile device will last longer over the device lifetime.
On June 30, the Nextel iDEN service goes offline, sticking Sprint with a heck of a lot of network scrap. Sprint, however, isn't just throwing it all in a dumpster behind Walmart. It will recycle whatever it can't use.
Silicon Valley will soon be getting a reminder of the power of thinking big: a life-sized bronzed statue of Nikola Tesla in Palo Alto, Calif.
Following the collapse of the first wave of cleantech investing, and an attention on digital technology, Silicon Valley has moved even further away from using tech to fight climate change. And that's too bad.
Starting at 730pm PT (or thereabouts), Tesla's Elon Musk will be the evening guest of honor at D11, and I'll live blog his appearance here.
Electric car maker Tesla Motors has hit a major milestone in the lifetime of any successful public company: it started trading at over $100 per share.
A developer in Atlanta has made an unofficial Nest app for Google Glass. Nest goes wearable!
University of Illinois researchers have created an app and a sensor-filled cradle that turn an iPhone into a mobile spectrophotometer. The combination of that mobile lab data and metadata such as location might prove very valuable.
AoTerra, a German company that's shattering records for crowdfunding in that country, is a cloud provider with a difference. Its servers heat the air and water in buildings, saving everyone money and making the OpenStack-based AoCloud very green indeed.
A new industrial strategy for the continent aims to unlock €100 billion in private-sector funding through the use of targeted public-sector funding for R&D in the fields of nanoelectronics and microelectronics.
Is $20 million the final valuation of electric car maker Fisker Automotive? Yikes, that's what a group is reportedly bidding on Fisker for, and which would be less than 1% of its original valuation.
The European Commission-funded project wants data center designers and operators to test prototypes of tools that should, from 2014, make it easier to build data centers that are as energy-efficient as possible.
An article from Data Center Knowledge points to things robots can do to increase efficiency in data centers. But hurdles lie ahead, and data centers will still need administrators, the article suggests.
Electric car maker Tesla Motors could make history again, if it pays off its loan from the Department of Energy many years before its due. According to a tweet from the CEO that could be as early as today.
Quantum computers, which have recently been bought by Google and Lockheed Martin, aren't just sophisticated computes, they need to operate at near absolute zero temperatures to deliver their quantum effects, and that's a tricky prob...
