Mother Earth thanks you, CherryPal

Let's be frank: the group of people that care about computers have never been very green. It's true! Computers are energy-hogging, constantly running machines that, as they consume electricity, contribute to global warming and the end of the world as we know it. So can we as nerds bake our cake and eat it? In all seriousness, a computer doesn't contribute as much energy consumption of, say, a car, but it is true that for people who use them a lot, a computer can burn through the watts. Like the "green car" movement, we now seem to be entering the "green computer" era of consumer electronics.

With that we have CherryPal, an upstart computer company focusing on green computers and a fruity name to boot. Relying on "cloud computing" (a term for low energy chips) from Freescale, 4gb of flash memory, some USB ports, and not much else. Apparently CherryPal hopes to have a cheap and functional computer when this goes to market, but has not showcased the power of the computer. At only 2 watts of energy consumption, even if this buggery doesn't run well, it's users can feel morally superior to everybody else around them. Well that's what really matters anyway.
