Every day we see dozens of devices, inventions and ideas that are conspiring to make this world a better place. And, usually, their eco aspects are pretty plain to see.
But, while geeks across the world are anticipating solid state drives (usually in the form of flash drives) for the traditional reasons (they are much faster than traditional hard disk drives, and (as they have no moving parts) they are more durable) we EcoGeeks look forward to them for an additional reason.
As any iPod Shuffle owner will note, solid state drives consume far less power than traditional drives. They don't move, they make no noise and they don't need to be cooled. When flash drives replace our hard drives we will work faster, quieter and more efficiently. And that is why, when a new innovation in solid state drives appears, we blog about it here at EcoGeek.
