Mod parent up! (Out of points) Excellent perspective there, far too many environmentalists and 'green' fanatics are very confused about these issues. I'm no environmentalist, but with a clear understanding of the importance of energy production, transfer and use I can at least see the real advantages of these new energy sources and means of transfer.

PC World Editor Resigns When Ordered Not to Criticize Advertisers 327

bricko noted a story of our modern journalism world gone so wrong it makes me sad. "Editor-in-Chief Harry McCracken quit abruptly today because the company's new CEO, Colin Crawford, tried to kill a story about Apple and Steve Jobs." The link discusses that the CEO was the former head of MacWorld and would get calls from Jobs. Apparently he also told the staff that product reviews had to be nicer to vendors who advertise in the magazine. The sad thing is that given the economics of publishing in this day and age, I doubt anything even comes of this even tho it essentially confirms that PC World reviews should be thought of as no more than press releases. I know that's how I will consider links from them in the future. But congratulations to anyone willing to stick to their guns on such matters.
