One thing Microsoft hasn't been clear about: used games. We know that every game will come with an activation code, and that you'll have to install a game to your system's hard drive before using it. You'll also have to register it online and connect it to your Xbox Live account. Your whole family will be able to play the same game on your Xbox One, but if you want to, say, bring a game to a friend's house and play on his machine, you'll have to use your account. If you give a game to a friend, and he wants to play it on his own account, he'll have to buy it.
Sounds like the concept of "used games" as we know it might be going away. But Microsoft says there will be "some" way to trade Xbox One games online. They're being sketchy on the details, though.

Imagine charging your cell phone in 1 second. There's a tiny new battery that can do that.
Scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have created an incredibly small, incredibly powerful battery that could vastly improve technology moving forward. The new micro-battery charges 1,000 times faster than regular batteries.
The batteries are also small. How small? They could fit in and power a credit-card-thin device. Leading scientist William P. King told the University of Illinois News Bureau: "The thinking parts of computers have gotten small. And the battery has lagged far behind. This is a micro-technology that could change all of that. Now the power source is as high-performance as the rest of it.”
The batteries are not only small enough to be used in tiny phones and gadgets, but are also powerful enough to be used in emergency equipment. Indeed, they are powerful enough to jump-start a car battery. The scientists are now working to create a way to create the batteries inexpensively so the batteries can be sold.
