Samsung intros eco-friendly LCD displaysSamsung is showing their love for the environment with the release of two more eco-friendly LCD displays in Korea. They’re in the SyncMaster 70 series with 20″ and 23″ sizes. The LCD displays will come with ToC (Touch of Color) Design and boast that they will suck up to 33% less energy compared to average LCDs.

If that turns out to be true, that’s pretty good. We like to see less waste. Aside from this power-saving feature, there aren’t any other details on this pair. Just a contrast ratio of 50,000 to 1 and a 2ms response time.

Ecobee Smart Thermostat is an energy saverEcobee’s new Smart Thermostat not only has a nice futuristic look compared to your current thermostat, but helps you save some money on your power bill. It becomes part of your home network operating via WiFi and comes with optional ZigBee expansion slots if you want to integrate it more completely.

At $385, it may take a bit of time for it to pay for itself. Ecobee says 12 to 18 months. It gets better as you get to know your energy usage patterns and make adjustments. The Ecobee Smart Thermostat ships early next year. Which is good because in this economy, it may take you some time to save up the $385.
