Nokia unveils eco phone and planet-friendly charger

Rob

Coltan?

I'd be more impressed if they could certify the coltan in the phone was recycled, which would cut down on the damage to the Congo, which is the source of 80% of the coltan and one of the main funding sources for the civil war.

Big brotha 0WNz your car

This is about being able to lock down whole tranches of waddling Yanks who can't escape from a transpecied H5N1 outbreak without their mobile sofas.

UK boffins form nanotech taskforce

Rob

amanfrommars

Almost looks like markov chaining, pointed at a reg page, but it's a damn clever routine if it does typo's.

Maybe it's nano AI. In which case we're in trouble.

But back on topic, I'm confused. An MP and a University want the government to act. Where do they think their salaries come from anyway?

Biggest barrier to green IT is cost

Rob

All systems are go, then.

Great! 75% can afford to make their IT services carbon neutral, 90% have a "green champion" in the department to write the plan and carry it through, and 80% can source the kit to do so.

And 70% will get kudos from the board for prioritising this.

So in 4 years we'll have a broadly green IT landscape. Apparently.

PlusNet does Pole dance for migrants

Rob

Nie! Nie ma!

If the Polish customer service I've experienced in Warsaw and Gdansk was anything to go by, I think they'll come back to an English service pretty quickly.

Sweaty spooks feel the heat as NSA runs short of juice

Rob

Neal Stephenson IS the prophet!

He predicted the merging of the CIA and the National Library of Congress.

NSA moves into Google datacentres, completes scanning everything in print, backs up all data traffic in the google system, and Neal collects the IP rights.

Mugabe gets email snooping green light

Do they still have access anyway?

I thought they'd gone dark last year?

Did someone pay the bill?
