#3 I've heard this kind of stuff for a loooooong time. Wake me when cold fusion really does work.
I'm just skeptical about these early announcements.

#6 From Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microwave):
Microwaves are a form of electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths ranging from as long as one meter to as short as one millimeter, or equivalently, with frequencies between 300 MHz (0.3 GHz) and 300 GHz.
So 900MHz is in the microwave band as well as UHF.
