jgberry, thank you very much! That makes a lot of sense. After reading that article, I figured if there was energy costs to be saved, even if small, why not? Since I leave my desktop on 24/7, I will just start using that to charge my bb.
scott_perry, I'm not sure why trying to cut down on my energy use is a bad thing. Even if you don't jive with the global warming deal, everyone is for saving money and clean air. The less we collectively use, the lower energy costs will go. It isn't like I'm going to great lengths to save the energy. I'm just plugging in my blackberry 1.5 feet to the right. This whole "tweak out" attitude towards anyone who wants to conserve energy without inconveniencing anyone else is beyond me..
