I found this a really interesting comparison between petrol and electric engines.

Battery V Petrol | Fully Charged
When Bosch loaned me a 'pro' electric lawn mower, they spoiled mowing for me for life. Using the electric one is so much easier, quieter and of course it actually cuts grass faster and with less faff.
However the similarities between the electric and the petrol mower, both self powered (you don't have to push) rotary mowers with same size cutting area, this inspired me to carry out an experiment.
When you use the energy equivalent in petrol as is stored in the battery, the same amount of kilowatt hours, you get quite markedly different results.

I must confess I had to check the date after reading tweets about this - it feels like an April 1st news story!

Interesting... Everyone was speculating they were going to Netflix, but this is quite a coup for Amazon...

Worth reading if you're a blogger who reviews or promotes products or events. If you were paid to write about something, or got it for free, you must disclose that fact.

I know this has been around for a while, but if you're a Game of Thrones fan this is essential viewing.

Interesting news for podcasters - SoundCloud has finally opened its podcasting features to everyone, after having had them in beta for years!
