10 'Green' Gadgets We Like

Well, it's Earth Day again today and the whole globe seems to be a little more eco-conscious this year. (We think it might have something to do with last year's spike in energy prices, so let's hope it lasts.)

We picked ten of our current favorites, from whimsical solar lights for your garden and energy monitors for your home to laptops that use up less energy. For pictures and details, take a look at the gallery below.
