For the future of solar, we’ve got the tech—it’s the economics, stupid

In the US, the future of solar energy will be made in California. Earlier this month, the state’s governor signed legislation that commits California to obtaining half of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030.

Withings Activité Steel review

The fact is that the Activité Steel is a wristwatch, which has inherent pitfalls. I’ve had very occasional short bouts of steps – moving between chairs in the living room, for instance – not tracked. Similarly, on one day I gained a couple of steps while sitting in my chair doing work. I also racked up some decent mileage by ... Read More »
