Anyway Intel going in this direction is definately a plus. Intel has such a large and highly skilled workforce, and it wouldnt be hard for them to expand into other areas. They do have many engineers/scientists, and processors and batteries are around the same field; in terms of chemistry and manufacturing processes. I'd really love for the end of petrol cars (actually end of everything that utilises fossil fuels) and the mass adoption of electric powered vehicles, but the limiting factor is the endless greed that oil/fossil fuel companies have, as well as their overwhelming influence.
