IBM emphasized that there work is still in the lab, but Nobel Prize status will depend on how reproducible their work is in other labs, and the utility of new results obtained by using this technique.

Some nice work in R&D, but was dismayed by the use of this wording - "IBM now for the first time can differentiate individual bonds in molecules," . Shouldn't they speak for the entire scientific community?

Remarkable! I wonder how long it will be before this technique will be generally available? Perhaps they should be in line for another Nobel in chemistry!
