Is it possible we could see 3.3 million zero emissions vehicles on American roads by 2025? That’s the ambitious dream of eight states across the country, which inked an agreement last week to try and nudge the fledgling green vehicle market into electric overdrive.
Think about it. Apple sold 33.1 million iPhones in 2013. It's revenue for the year was $37.47 billion. Sure, the company also sold 14.1 million iPads, among other stuff, but as mathematical relationships go, it's hard to beat that correlation.
A new research study - jointly written by Lars Backstrom of Facebook and Jon Kleinberg of Cornell University - tries to understand how your relationships pan out figuratively and mathematically. The result is a predictive of the ebb and flow of your relationships.

Google's web-centric Chrome operating system (OS) was originally coded to run on laptops and desktops. However, it seems as if Chrome OS may be evolving into an operating system that could ultimately run on tablets, hybrids and convertible notebooks.
Cosmochemists have solved a long standing mystery in the formation of the solar system: Oxygen, the most abundant element in Earth's crust, follows a strange, anomalous pattern in the oldest, most pristine rocks, one that must result from a different chemical process than the well-understood reactions that form minerals containing oxygen on Earth.
It's a view as good as gold. A loop high above Saturn by NASA's Cassini spacecraft revealed this stately view of the golden-hued planet and its main rings. The observation and resulting image mosaic were planned as one of three images for Cassini's 2013 Scientist for a Day essay contest.
Did you know that crystals form the basis for the penetrating icy blue glare of car headlights and could be fundamental to the future in solar energy technology?
The ozone hole that forms each year in the stratosphere over Antarctica was slightly smaller in 2013 than average in recent decades, according to NASA satellite data.
Scientists have fingerprinted a distinctive atmospheric wave pattern high above the Northern Hemisphere that can foreshadow the emergence of summertime heat waves in the United States more than two weeks in advance.
Nokero has made a bit of a name for itself in marketing and selling environmentally friendly solar-based technologies such as solar lights and solar battery chargers. It is now introducing what it says is the most affordable solar light bulb in the world, and it is aimed at emerging markets.
