IBM just announced a major breakthrough in computer cooling technology using a water cooled system. Today most computing devices, especially servers, are cooled through air conditioning. However, through this new breakthrough IBM claims to be able to cut the amount of energy spent cooling by 40%. Naturally this would reduce both power consumption (something critical in today's data centers) and carbon emissions. Given that electronics and water do not mix this will be very interesting to see how this develops. More importantly it is nice to see that IBM is alive and innovating, it's been a while Big Blue.
