Awake yet? (7)

An interesting read on using solar energy (Wired):

Idealab impresario Bill Gross couldn’t wait for the dawn of the sun age. So he built a high-energy, low-cost solar concentrator that will fit on your roof. And overthrow the powers that be.

We may not be there yet but if the improvements his group has made are an indication, solar energy that can compete with other energy sources without government funding may be closer than you thought.

Another interesting article (Ars Technica) on Apple’s decision to go with Intel chips:

The cold, hard reality here is that the Mac is Apple’s past and the iPod is Apple’s future. It’s a shame that Steve Jobs can’t be upfront with his user base about that fact, because, frankly, I think the Mac community would understand.

That’s all for now.
