'Magic Nano' nano? Naahhh

Small Times reports that the "Magic Nano" toxicity scare was really much nano about nothing. The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment plunged into the toilet cleaner's ingredients and resurfaced with nein nanotech.

Yet, the story continues at its surreal pace. Erich Pica of "Friends of the Earth" (quotation marks are mine) does his best to synchronize reality with farce by calling for regulations on use of that nano marketing label. Sorry, Apple. Inject some real nanotech into the iPod Nano, or face the consequences.
