Dell- Energy-Efficient LED Displays

Dell implements transition to LED laptop displays which will impact energy consumption as equipment is replaced. ...

... "Dell's 15-inch LED displays consume an average of 43 percent less power at maximum brightness, resulting in extraordinary cost and carbon savings. The company estimates customer savings of approximately $20 million and 220 million kilowatt-hours in 2010 and 2011 combined, the equivalent of annual CO2 emissions resulting from energy use of more than 10,000 homes1. Dell also estimates that at least 80 percent of its total laptop volume will be delivered with LED as a standard back-lit display by the end of 2009 and 100 percent in 2010. " ...

If Tomorrow Comes .....

A novel which I read recently..."If Tomorrow Comes..."

Author : Sidney Sheldon
Genre : Thriller
Published on: 1985

The story starts with the suicide of Mrs.Whitney, mother of Ms.Tracy Whitney. Tracy who is engaged to Chrles Standhope, and carrying his life within her, is shocked with the news of her mother''s death. She comes to know that her mother has been cheated and forced to sell her business. On hearing this, Tracy got furious and goes to threaten the guy (Joe Romano), who cheated her mother into accepting the truth. Things goes completely against her and she ends up in jail.

This is where the story actually begins. She faces big challenges and tragedies with the Prison atmosphere and some incidents in the jail. After many troubles, she is released for good conduct (she saves the kid of the warden, dumping her plans to escape). Then Tracy starts destroying the people, who are behind the death of her mother and for ruing her life. Ernestine, jail cellmate of Tracy helps her for the revenge operation.

With no one ready to employ her, she indulges into robbery out of desperation, where she was surprised by her own talent in this field. Something which starts as the means to stay alive later turns into passion and there is no stopping her unless Jeff Stevens enters her life(and later manages to enter into her.....heart). A competition starts and they are now stealing for pride.

Finally they end up together getting engaged and still they can’t be stopped.

A typical Sheldon class novel, it has lot of “masala”, which is not new for Sidney Sheldon. A good entertainer, especially the way both Tracy and Jeff steal, it makes for a good page turning stuff.

A novel worth reading for some nice entertainment..

Frog Light: Light bulb with LED

We all know we should be replacing our energy-sucking incandescent light bulbs with CFLs. As part of its green design program, frog design has conceptualized this lovely light bulb around a high-output LED.

The frogLight bulb fits in a standard socket and can be dimmed -- an important ability for both energy-saving and mood-setting that CFLs can't yet manage. And it's projected to last for 30years.
