    ROFLOL!! I completely forgot about the DD Floppies!! What a RIOT! Their claim was that the ones that were Single Data didn't pass the quality check to be rated for Double Data, but it was complete hogwash! Thanks so much for reminding me of that one! I used to manage a computer store then, and we sold Commodore 32, Commodore 64 and Commodore 128 computers. When the DD Discs came out, we started carrying a small Disc Punch tool that would create the notch...made a good number of sales of those things!

    Last week I was doing a little spring cleaning of the cabinets in my office at work and I found several boxes of old 3-1/2 in floppies (I don't even have a floppy drive any more), a bunch of blank CD-R's, a bunch of iOmega 120 MB backup tapes and an iOmega backup tape drive. They all went in the trash.

    Yep...I still have a boat-load of antiquated computer crap I have to go through and dispose of. Amazing how fast things move now. Remember ZIP drives? That was short-lived too. How about Removable Hard Drive Platters - cartridges (JAZ Drives, and Seagate made one as well).

    Today I had the pleasure of attending the opening of the Computing and Communications museum of the Israel Electric Company. The IEC has been around for almost a century and has kept pace with computing advances since its early days; curator Dlila Shapira did a great job rounding up some lovely vintage pieces from the “big iron” era and later.
    No less interesting than the equipment on display were the speeches of some veteran managers of the computing division. One gentleman told us how when he first arrived on board as a programmer his first task was to glue shut holes that had been punched in error onto punched cards; a bottle of the liquid used was on display, and here it is.



    OK, now let's get back to the subject of the OP...

    Wireless charging of the S4!!

    yeah the title is a little misleading. would be helpful to include word enable or install, otherwise people might think that they can charge the phone wirelessly in 20 seconds

    There is this one high school girl in California who, for a school science project, discussed supercapacitors that could eventually lead to chargers that would recharge a phone's battery in 20 seconds.

    Perhaps the title is a little suggestive if you choose to read it that way, but it's a way of writing an editorial title that is intended to catch your eye. It's quite common in other forms of press to have a similar headline. So I don't believe it's misleading.

    Also, if you read the title verbatim, it says "Wireless charging ON your Galaxy S4", not "OF your Galaxy S4", so it is descriptive of gaining the ability to charge wirelessly in 20 seconds, not charging it in 20 seconds.
