Thing #10 - Technology Blogging

Apple files patent for solar charging

I found this over on The Unofficial Apple Weblog, and this is great. Apple has filed a patent for a new type of transparent solar cell to power your electronics, like your iPod or laptop.

Personally, I think this is a great idea. There has been times that I haven't been able to find my power chord for my iPod and had to suffer the consequences---awful radio for a five hour ride home. However, if my iPod had the solar cell that this article is about, I could just leave it in a window sill and charge it up.

Way to go green!
