It means well, but why would you ever leave your charger plugged in in the first place? Of course, I’m speaking as someone who obsessively unplugs everything after use.
The 117mm x 60mm x 12.45mm (4.6in x 2.3in x 0.49in) Aspen is available in two colors: iconic black and white silver. It sports a 2.4-inch touch screen 320 x 240 resolution display, a 3.5mm headphone jack, aGPS, and WiFi connectivity. The Aspen also comes equipped with a 3.2 megapixel camera.
In short, the qualities I look for in a phone. Aargh. It’s a lovely piece of work and it’s a good thing that green phones are really getting in shape, looks- and features-wise. Now mobile phone manufacturers have no excuse for making crappy-looking phones with shoddy features.
Cez has recently been in need of a portable hard drive for her photography business, so this might be something that she’ll find interesting. Samsung has unveiled the EcoGreen F3EG, an upgrade from last year’s EcoGreen F2EG. So what’s so green about this 2TB beauty? For one thing, it doesn’t use any brominated flame retardants or halogen compounds and for another, it consumes 40 percent less power in idle mode and 10 percent less in read/write mode. The HDD will be for sale soon with a price tag of $179.99.
ZDNet.com‘s blog posted the news “‘World’s Most Eco Friendly External Drive’ released“. The name? [re]drive by SimpleTech. Hopping over to SimpleTech’s website, it turns out that this external hard drive’s capacity is 500GB. Not bad.
Other features include, among others:
* Energy-efficient external hard drive uses less power
* Eco-friendly ingredients and packaging (believe it or not, it’s made with renewable, naturally grown bamboo and recyclable aluminum!)
* Automatically powers on or off with your computer
* Simple plug n play add-on storage
It’s worth a look. I’ll definitely hunt this thing down after I contemplate whether or not I need an external drive.
