T-Mobile USA Turns to the Sun for Cell Tower Power
T-Mobile USA has switched a cell tower in the town of Chalfont, Penn., from standard electricity to solar power with the addition of solar panels. T-Mobile says that the solar panels are enough to take the cell tower off the grid (no need for standard electricity). The panels generate enough power that it is able to occasionally feed power back to the electrical grid. T-Mobile didn't elaborate on how much electricity the solar panels generate, but claimed it to be the first solar powered-cell tower in the U.S.
There's a new touch panel technology in town, and it's coming to next year's phones with flexible displays. Sensel makes touch panels that have the precision and multi-touch capability of today's capacitive touch technology, but are better suited to the flexible displays coming to phones this year and next.

"Sorry Sir. I tried calling but the sun refused to shine through the heavy cloud cover and I couldn't get through because the tower was dead."
