Have you ever been frustrated when you put brand new batteries in a device, only to find out that it didn't work? Have a device that requires batteries, but have a hard time making out which end is + and which end is -? Microsoft, of all companies, is here to make your life easier with its newest tech: InstaLoad. Simply place the batteries in your device, and forget about which way each one should be facing. It really couldn't be any simpler, and to be honest I'm surprised that no one has come up with this before. The tech should work with most of your standard, cylindrical batteries (AA, AAA, C, D). Now if Windows and IE could "insta-load." [Mashable]
