In this trendwatching podcast, Cathi Bond talks about Samsung’s new Restore cellphone. It’s cute! It’s green (literally and figuratively)! It’s a follow-up to its previous Reclaim phone. The Reclaim featured mostly corn-based bio plastics, and was mostly recyclable. With the Restore, it’s 84% recyclable, and the shell is made of more than 25% post-consumer recycled material.

Cathi also discusses Indonesia’s plan to get geothermal power from volcanoes (via Inhabitat)
Nora says it’s a sign of the times that New York’s Limelight, which began life as a church before becoming a much talked about nightclub is now set to be…a mall! A sign of the times, as shopping seems to be the new religion. That said, it does look pretty swell! (via JC Report)
