Wireless Ways to Go Green

Worldchanging ally David Pescovitz has a great piece in his Lab Notes newsletter about Arpad Horvath's work weighing the environmental benefits of websurfing and teleconferenceing vs. reading print newspapers and attending meetings. In a new study, UC Berkeley researchers report that receiving your news wirelessly on a PDA instead of delivered to your door requires up to 140 times less carbon dioxide, several orders of magnitude less greenhouse gases, and the consumption of 26 to 67 times...

Green Computers, Part Five

We've covered green computers before, but the CBC's done a whiz-bang job of explaining why designing new, green computers is such an important goal. Turns out the best way to shrink your computer's footprint is to extend it's lifespan by upgrading it instead of replacing it. And smart power management can reduce the juice you pulling down to power it. But if you do need to buy a new one, greener machines are starting to show up on the shelves. The current benchmark seems to be 2002's...
