Phrase pioché sur Internet à laquelle j'adhère...
Xavier Niel le philanthrope. Trop de gens en France critiquent les riches. On se demande pourquoi. Non seulement la richesse n’exclue pas la noblesse de l’âme, mais elle en est la manifestation la plus éclatante. Merci Monsieur Niel !

Awesome !
I really cannot believe no one in my Google+ stream is talking about this.. Did I somehow miss it? This is easily the most amazing practical application of nano technology that I have seen recently. Its impact on the improvement of the world may be more difficult to see than, say, electricity producing nanodot paint, but surely the general public would be floored by this.

This superhydrophobic coating is truly stunning
by Christopher MacManus November 11, 2011 3:53 PM PST
A superhydrophobic spray-on coating set to launch next year could dramatically change our perception of the phrase "water resistant."
NeverWet is a patent-pending silicon-based covering that deflects nearly all liquids and heavy oils by creating a very high contact angle upon application. The angle is much higher than traditional substrates, such as car wax (90 degrees), Teflon (95 degrees), or Rain-X (110 degrees). Liquid literally glides off NeverWet's 160 degree to 175 degree angle in a way that almost seems like computer animation, as seen in the video below.

At first glance, the mind-bending NeverWet comes across as a liquid repellent, but it is much more than that. Surfaces that are sprayed with NeverWet repel ice, corrosion, and even bacteria. The company behind the product, Ross Nanotechnologies, says on its Web site that the material does not fade in strength from blasts of high pressure. In fact, it even states that NeverWet-infused materials "have remained under seawater for over a year and reemerged completely dry."

A dramatic video by the company also demonstrates something unbelievable: a waterproof iPhone. A video shows an iPhone covered in NeverWet, sitting in a bowl of water for 30 minutes, remaining fully functional the entire time it is submerged. Other potential applications include a variety of objects and places, such as shoes, electrical equipment, clothing, hospitals, bathroom products, and much more.
Lancaster Online has an informative interview with several of the people behind NeverWet, including co-inventor Vinod Sikka. He admits to the Pennsylvania newspaper, "It's challenging to break into the coatings market. People have been using the same stuff from the same suppliers for a long time. It is very novel, and when you start thinking about it, you can think about how transformative the technology can be," Jones said. "You can use it everywhere."

Tout comme les gens pratique le vote sanction, je vous invite tous à pratiquer la souscription sanction chez Free, pour montrer aux autres qu'il y en a marre qu'on nous prenne notre argent. Tout ce qu'il ont fait c'est attendre qu'un opérateur baisse enfin les prix et maintenant Orange, Bouygues, SFR, les MVNOs suivent comme des moutons, car ils savent pertinemment que tout le monde ou presque irait chez Free sinon...
Alors ayez un peu de jugeotte et réfléchissez bien grâce à qui ses baisses ont été possibles. Il faut encourager des boites qui font le maximum pour apporter un service au client et non pas voir le client comme un chiffre ...
