    Not to be a cynical dick, but there don’t seem to be many solar panels on this thing…

    If solar panels that small actually provided any meaningful power… wouldn’t they be on the roof and hood of electric cars?

    I’m all for solar and wind, but turning green energy in to a “gimmick” does nothing… except green-up the image of giant corporations.

    The wind turbine aspect is gorgeous – though since GE had no real hand its development, they needed to add some fluff in order to put their name on it.
