Gleanings from the blogosphere, Aug. 31

Sean McCarthy, CEO of SteornAmba at Ambivablog tells us about an Irish company, Steorn, that claims to have invented a technology that produces free, clean and constant energy. Skepticism is allowed. Read the Wikipedia article too.

Something perhaps a little more credible, but almost as fantastic:
University of Arizona physicists invent single-molecule transistors, which could result in a microprocessor as powerful as the top-of-the-line workstation small enough to fit on the back of an E. coli. Ed at Hassenpfeffer has his eye out for this kind of thing, as befits a science fiction writer.

High tech, low class. Ed Morrissey at Captain's Quarters takes Radio Shack to task for its recent firing by email - effective immediately - of 400 employees. Callimachus at Done With Mirrors treats the subject with similar disdain.
