How Often Should I Charge My Gadget's Battery to Prolong Its Lifespan?

How Often Should I Charge My Gadget's Battery to Prolong Its Lifespan?
But most phones now don't use lithium ion, but lithium polymer, which I've heard prefers to be fully charged. How about some relevant info? You sure? Just checked mine, it's lithium ion. And it's an HTC Thunderbolt, fairly recent phone. There's a lot of confusion over terms with lithium batteries. All modern batteries use a solid polymeric electrolyte for shuttling the charge around, but they are still "lithium ion" batteries. As for complete charging, in most devices it doesn't matter quite so much due to the charging circuitry being fairly smart. RS, I'm not sure why you aren't a starred commenter.

I felt it was a great opportunity for our first graders, who had just finished a unit on butterflies, to create a book about the different stages of a butterfly and their learning reflection as a culminating activity. Students wrote a story, as a class, about the different stages of the butterfly.

The Creature from Jekyll Island, The Federal Reserve, talk by Edward Griffin We'll start way back in history to give some kind of historical perspective to this; we'll go back to the first century BC and the tiny kingdom of Phrygia. There was a philosopher by the name of Epictetus and it was Epictetus who said "Appearances are of four kinds: things either are as they appear to be; or they neither are nor appear to be; or they are but do not appear to be; or they are not and yet appear to be." When I read that statement for the first time, I had a big chuckle over it and I thought for sure that if Epictetus were alive today he would probably be a Harvard professor of money and banking; it sounds like so many explanations that I have read about various aspects of the Federal Reserve System. What he did was he took a fairly simple concept but by the time that he was through explaining it, we didn't have any idea what he was talking about.

Best interactive iPad books of 2011 for kids of all ages - iPhone app recommendations - Lisa Caplan All of these best iPad books for kids use digitization to enhance the reading experience, not divert attention from it. Where there are frills, I prefer to see them focus on education instead of playtime. There are great books for pre-schoolers but also for older kids, a somewhat under-served sector. And, for those aimed at school-aged readers, I primarily looked for educational offerings, since there are iBooks, eBooks and digital comics for fiction fans. Here are eight amazing iPad reading apps for kids from 2011. The order is based on approximate audience age, not preference.
