And, on those iCloudy and raiNy days users will just have to go back to iWiFi (like they're used to).

Interesting, though, how Apple is concerned more with global Environment than with Humanity (in China).

There must be some sort of BIG iTax break.

interesting how you're more concerned with apple articles than android on a daily basis...

There must be some sort of BIG insecurity.

im actually surprised they didnt go with wind power or a blend of both to cut back on the amount of acreage that solar farms use and reduce its environmental impact.

Wind isn't as reliable of a source though. The sun shines a lot more than wind blows. Also it could be due to the lack of wind in that area possibly that could make Wind not a good source of clean energy.

Did a whole project on solar.... THIS IS DEFINITELY A SUSTAINABLE AND GOOD IDEA...

THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE 95% EFFICIENCY OFF TODAYS SOLAR CELLS FOR 25 YEARS.... I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY EVERYONE ISN'T DOING THIS...

AS A DIEHARD FANDROID .... I WILL HAVE TO DISAGREE WITH YOU REMIXFA (A FIRST PROB LAST) ON THE BASE THAT THE LAND USED IS STILL BETTER THAN A EQUALLY LARGE OIL REFINERY OR COAL PLANT!

It's a great idea. Hope they don't get patents like "searches processed by machines powered by the sun", or as the heading funnily states, from the "North Carolina sun".
