  • Sony Ready To "Crackle" The Web Thursday, 15 Nov 2007 | 4:38 PM ET

  • Hollywood's Newest Hit: The Color Green Wednesday, 31 Oct 2007 | 5:03 PM ET

    In the entertainment industry, the idea of being green is very, very cool. You can't go two feet without seeing a Prius--they're even becoming the limo-of-choice for the Oscars. I myself bought a Prius in May and I love it. Not only is it eco-friendly, but it's also incredibly convenient. Not having to fill up that often saves a ton of money, and all that time wasted at the gas station. Tons of time.
