The device features a 10 centimeter wide thin-film photovoltaic panel that can power the reader for a full day's worth of reading after 4-5 hours spent sitting in the sun."
Thus mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know
what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true.
