Gadget warning...

From Green Living Magazine

5 not so green gadgets

There's more to a truly eco-friendly technology than energy-efficiency. So the next time you're out shopping for the latest electronics, keep these tips in mind.
Here's a summary of the gadget types to avoid:
  • Plasma screen TVs
  • TVs from manufacturers that don't have takeback programs
  • Greenwashed gadgets (they sound green but in the end, more energy is used in their life-cycle than a standard gadget
  • Gadgets with a stand-by mode (without Energy Star rating)
  • Electric appliances (compared to gas appliances)
  • Bonus gadget: Desktop computers compared to laptops
