Eco-button & Stats

Good friend of mine sent me the following link to an eco-button, a device that plugs in to the USB port of your computer. When you're away from your computer, one hit of the button switches the computer to ultra-low-power mode until you get back.

Apart from the device itself, i mention this because the website has an interesting animation (partially shown above) which demonstrates the amounts of carbon dioxide generated (to power computers) in terms of hot-air balloons and football stadiums. Scary stuff!
