Microsoft introduces the Surface Pro 3: 
A monster 
12-inch tablet that 'replaces the laptop'
At 11am Eastern Time (4pm UK time), 
will hold a special Surface event in New 
York City.
 Microsoft has been uncustomarily secretive
 about the
 event, offering no guidance or embargoed 
 to journalists. The only clue we have is a line
 from the 
invitation -- 'join us for a small gathering' -- which hints 
that Microsoft is probably going to unveil a small 
Surface tablet. A live video feed of the event is 
embedded below, and this story will be updated 
with the latest news once the event begins.

The worst storage mediums of all time
Papyrus and movable type were huge steps forward in their times, but the 20th century 
saw massive
 jumps in data storage. Paper and ink gave way to magnetic tape and various types of disk, and 
suddenly humanity could store so much more than just the written word. Unfortunately, we've also
 hit some major speed bumps along the way.

Scientists work out how create matter from light, to finally prove Einstein's E=mc2
Physicists in England claim they have discovered how to create matter from light, by 
smashing together
 individual massless protons -- a feat that was first theorized back in 1934, and has been
practically impossible until now. If this new discovery pans out, the final piece of the physics
 jigsaw puzzle 
that describes how light and matter interact would be complete. No one's quite sure of the 
 if matter can indeed be produced from photon-photon collision, but I'm sure 
something awesomely 
scientific will emerge before long

Here come the rice-grain-sized brain implants: Stanford discovers way of beaming power to
 microimplants deep inside your body
Stanford electrical engineer and biological implant mastermind, Ada Poon, has discovered a
 way of 
wirelessly transmitting power to tiny, rice-grain-sized implants that are deep within the human
This could well be the breakthrough that finally allows for the creation of smaller pacemakers, 
sensor networks, and a new class of "electroceutical" devices that sit deep in the human brain 
stimulate neurons directly, providing an alternative for drug-based therapies for 
depression, Alzheimer's, and other neurological ailments.

Oculus Rift, three Kinects effectively bring an entire human body into a virtual world
It's now possible to dynamically represent your entire body inside of a virtual world,
 and this
 monumental task can be accomplished with off-the-shelf hardware. With three first-gen
and an Oculus Rift dev kit, a developer by the name of Oliver Kreylos has hacked together
 a true 
VR prototype that actually makes you feel like you're in a computer-generated 

FCC votes in favor of pay-for-priority internet fast lanes
Later today, Thursday, the US's Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will 
vote on a
 new net-neutrality Open Internet proposal. This proposal (which still hasn't been publicly
was originally full of language that would allow ISPs to set up internet "fast lanes," forcing
providers (such as Netflix or Skype) to pay for traffic priority -- a barbed dagger in the heart 
of net
 neutrality. Where does this leave the internet and net neutrality? Is there anything we can do to 
stop the FCC and its kowtow to capitalism?

Toyota abandons Tesla's EV tech, will push hydrogen fuel cell vehicles instead
In the wake of the auto industry collapse in 2010, Toyota made a move that many industry
 applauded. It partnered with electric vehicle maker Tesla to incorporate its battery 
technology into 
future Toyota cars and SUVs. Tesla was seeing success in a very niche market with its
 Tesla Roadster, so it seemed like a safe bet for the Japanese company to bring it to the 
 Four years and one spectacularly failed vehicle later, Toyota is throwing in the towel on pure 
vehicles in favor of hydrogen fuel cells.
