In addition to efficiency, VIA has started a program called "carbon-free computing", where they offset the carbon that will be produced by the manufacturing and lifetime energy use of their CPU's. They do these offsets by building renewable power generation in developing countries, restoring forest and wetlands, and doing energy conservation." http://www.worldchanging.com/archives/006239.html http://www.via.com.tw/en/products/processors/c7-d http://www.via.com.tw/en/initiatives/cleancomputin g/carbon-free_computing.jsp"

The new system from Imation will embed RFID chips in standard tape-cartridge labels. They can either be scanned individually with a handheld device or by placing cases, with up to 20 tapes, on a scanning pad. Imation's DataGuard rf Tape Tracking System will be sold as a kit that contains scanning devices, tracking management software, and a newly designed tape cartridge carrying case that fits most tape cartridge formats, including LTO, DLT, 3590, 34x0, 9x40, 3592, and T10000."
