Induction Versus DC Brushless Motors
"My conclusion is that DC brushless drives will likely continue to dominate in the hybrid and coming plug-in hybrid markets, and that induction drives will likely maintain dominance for the high-performance pure electrics. The question is what will happen as hybrids become more electrically intensive and as their performance levels increase? The fact that so much of the hardware is common for both drives could mean that we will see induction and DC brushless live and work side by side during the coming golden era of hybrid and electric vehicles."

Portland to generate electricity within its own water pipes
very interesting idea. Mouth breathers in the comment section get schooled by people who actually know what they're talking about and who actually read the article.
