While BP finally seems to have a cork in the bottle so-to-speak, others continue to develop promising advances in environmentally friendly things like green housing. The first link highlights an ongoing project in South Africa designed to prove that green housing can be affordable to everyone. From there we continue the green machine with a look at concept art depicting futuristic power stations. Not to be outdone, pictures of Apple’s very blue test room are next. Who knew the iPhones went through so much testing? Personally, I’m impressed. I would also like to sit in that very high chair and make a phone call from there. Is it just me, or does it look like something out of Tron or some other sci-fi flick? Anyway, from there you will learn why we all need to get up off of our derrière before sitting in the comfy chair kills us. One more serious article on medical billing waste and then we move on to a double-helping of kludge from the ‘There, I Fixed It’ blog. Enjoy your weekend and we’ll see you next week!
