They showed this video in my journalism class today and I found it hilarious. This video dates back to 1981 before I was born, and it's about being able to read the newspaper from home on the computer. The people in the video sounded so excited about being able to view the newspaper from home at $5 an hour....And it takes two hours for the full newspaper to load...LOL

DAMN that’s a big number.
Scientific America, says that US workers waste $2.8 billion annually in energy costs by failing to shut off their PCs. This stat is actually take from the 2009 PC Energy Report, a report done by 1E that shows findings on computer energy usage in the UK, US and Germany. The report also states that PCs and monitors account for 29% of all the IT industry’s emissions, which is equal to 43.9 million cars.
I guess the lesson here is to turn off your computers at night. But I leave my computer on forever. The only time I turn it off is if I know I’m not going to be using it the next day, which is almost never. I don’t turn it off cause I don’t like waiting for it to turn on. Sometimes I’ll put it into sleep mode, which is like half turning off your computer, but I’ve been running Windows 7 lately and the beta has some problems with sleep and hibernation so I’ve just been leaving it on.
Screw the environment.

The Dell Adamo looks gorgeous. Except for one minor thing.
I hate the extrusion sticking out the back of the Adamo. It looks like a BIG FAT ASS. And its annoying because its supposed to be the “world’s thinnest” notebook but that big fat ass just ruins it all. Look at the FATNESS!
Check out the unboxing video from Xavier at Notebooks.com. That’s some pretty fancy packaging.
I think the Voodoo Envy 133 looks better.
