Apple considers solar power for it’s product line up.
If Apple can pull off using solar cells effectively with small surface areas the concept has gigantic potential of extending battery life for laptops, iPods and iPhones. The most interesting concept within the patent application is the ability use the surface area behind LCD screens to capture the ambient light thats passes through. Apple is just investigating the potential of solar power into their products, although the company is known to innovate. If they can merge their products with solar power, the best outcome would be more of the mainstream public would get comfortable using solar power and then consider going solar for their home or business. Considering solar power, Apple is sticking to its value proposition, “Think Different.”
