For those who know me, they know I am an avid gamer. I have been console gaming since I was a kid and only in the last few years did I get myself into World of Warcraft. I play the game with a lot of real life friends and we use a voice server to communicate whether we are actually playing the game or not. When you live alone, using just your computer’s speakers and a stand-alone microphone is okay for gaming but when you move cross country to be with someone and you now share space, finding the right headset is essential to the livelihood of the relationship and staying in touch with friends online.
Solar power has been touted around for some time as the savior of our global energy problems, although there remains a great deal of skepticism. Perhaps what the critics fail to realize or acknowledge is that solar technology involved is improving at such a rate that anything, literally anything, could soon be possible. Whilst it is true that solar power is unlikely to provide enough power for our cities to abandon their existing grids, it is the general consumers in general consumer markets who are benefiting the most from this great innovation. Five years ago the idea of having a solar-powered watch would have been dismissed by many as ludicrous, but solar-powered watches are here, and they are good. Very good.
