LOTD for January 18

Wow, it looks like China’s BYD battery manufacturer has a battery for electric cars coming out this year that will well surpass the performance of the batteries on the market now. A $25k electric car with a 60 mile range now, with an upcoming electric model with a 250 mile range is pretty impressive. BYD just entered the auto business 5 years ago!

I didn’t realize that GM was going to be buying their electric car batteries from a Korean company for the Chevy Volt…what happened during all those years they said they were working on an electric car battery?

I didn’t realize how some airlines (Southwest seems to be the most generous) make it quite easy to get a refund for the difference when air fares drop after someone buys a ticket. The request has to be made before your flight and some airlines give a travel voucher while others credit back the credit card:

The PS3 and XBox 360 apparently will have price cuts soon, but Nintendo doesn’t plan a price cut for the Wii anytime soon:
