“We’re excited to team up with AT&T and Pensa to help make New York a little greener and solar power a little more accessible,” said Joe Atkin, President and CEO of Goal Zero. “Nearly half of all Americans own a smartphone and the amount of time we spend on handheld devices has increased dramatically. All too often, we hear the dreaded low-battery beep and it happens at the most inconvenient times. Street Charge will fix that.”
Really? People spent time on this? Yeah, sure, it’s green and all but…I apologize, I can’t find a way to end this sentence the way I’d like. Let alone the amount of time it takes to charge a dead phone battery do we really want to encourage our reliance on these even more? I’ve seen and known people who have a hard enough time putting these things down. I can just imagine how much more people’s bill will be when they can use it more. And should I mention the current NSA/Big Brother media hype thing that’s happening right now? Do we really want to be on our phones MORE?
