Solar Powered Gadgets: Future Reality

Today’s CNN News video shares a piece of exciting news about Apple’s new technology of using solar power for mobile devices. Even though this solar-power technology is not in Apple’s supply chain yet at this point, I am already looking forward to using solar powered gadgets in the near future. Considering that there are five billion cell phones users and one billion computer users in the world, the results of using solar powered devices will be incredible to the environments. With a little optimism, I can easily see the potential of applying this solar power technology to almost everything that people use every day. Then, tremendous energy can be saved, and most of all, people do not need to rely on their chargers of tens of gadgets at home or at work anymore. How amazing!

Within the hospitality industry, “Going Green” is for sure a definite trend. We emphasize this trend by discussing the history of lodging products, green practices in the hospitality industry, the hottest restaurant trend, the hottest hotels in 2011, and the property tour at Sheraton SU. What do you think of the green concept in the hospitality industry? To which direction(s) will green initiatives lead the hospitality industry? What can we do to prepare for a “green” hospitality industry?
