Modern cell phones still take forever to charge, from a brisk but often still inconvenient 20 minutes to upwards of a full hour. So imagine how revolutionary a charger that’d do the job in less than half a minute might be.

And NOW just think about the implications – this technology could potentially release the tether electric cars have with charging so long thus moving us closer away from our dependency of fossil fuel.

18 Year Old Girl Invents 30 Second Cell Phone Charging

You know the scenario. You’re getting ready to head out for a night on the town. Everything, for once, is going perfectly according to plan. You whip out your phone to let friends know you’re heading out, and that’s when you realize: whoops, forgot to charge the phone.

Inevitably, you’ll probably throw it on the charger for as many minutes as you can afford before heading out, but settle on the idea that you will be incommunicado during the latter portion of the night. That is, unless teenage innovator Eesha Khare’s creation sees the light of day. As told by SlashGear, the 18-year-old developed a means of fully charging a cellphone battery in — count ‘em — as little as 30 seconds.

Reblogged | Overlooked Info: Get Your Twitter archive | Twitter Blog. “UPDATED”

  If you tweet, then at some point you will found yourself wanting to go back in time and explore your past Tweets. Maybe you wanted to recall your reaction to the an election, reminisce on what you said to your partner on your anniversary or breakup, or just find your funniest past Tweets. We all at some point for many different reasons, would like to explore our Twitter past.

  Yes, there are many ‘twitter search engines‘ boasting to help find your old tweets easily but not one has worked well enough for me…or even been any less painful than scrolling 4+yrs back manually on my own..
So hopefully you will find today’s Reblogged/Post to have as much value as I have. Easily get and access your own Twitter Archive.

Ok, So here’s how you do it:

Today, we’re introducing the ability to download your Twitter archive, so you’ll get all your Tweets (including Retweets) going back to the beginning. Once you have your Twitter archive, you can view your Tweets by month, or search your archive to find Tweets with certain words, phrases, hashtags or @usernames. You can even engage with your old Tweets just as you would with current ones.

Go to Settings and scroll down to the bottom to check for the option to request your Twitter archive. If you do see it, go ahead and click the button. You’ll receive an email with instructions on how to access your archive when it’s ready for you to download.

After you get the .zip file sent in your email:

unzip/ and click open the “index.html” file


And it will open in your default browser just like a webpage. You now have the power to select what year & month & scroll to find tweets from your past.


if you plan to keep the unzipped folder in place on your hardrive (& aren’t afraid of prying eyes) go ahead and bookmark the the page in your browser for later use.

As you go through all of your Tweets, share your favorites using #TwitterArchive.
