Findings by the Office of Naval Research indicate that video games improve overall perceptual and cognitive abilities. While nothing new—the claim is nearly as old as Pac-Man, the irregular warfare we face today makes it more relevant than ever. Since Pong, video games have been castigated for everything from school truancy, to school shootings, to even global warming.

Handheld electronic devices -- regardless of what they are used for or who manufactures them -- share one common denominator: a re-chargeable battery and, in most cases, a built-in charger circuit. When an external power source such as an AC adapter or a USB port is attached at the input terminal, the charger circuit will re-charge the battery.
Many commercial communications satellites are limited to fixed band plans that assign a bandwidth to users even if they are not actively employing it, an inefficient use of communications capacity.
