An old classic commercial for the Sega Genesis video game system featuring it's "Blast Processing" feature. FUN FACT: The "Sega Genesis" and the "Super Nintendo" system were two fantastic video game consoles that were nearly two years apart in age, Sega Genesis was first released in January 1974, and Super Nintendo was first released in December 1975. And both systems tried to deal with their rival and were both fire burning hot at the video game market.

BY LINDSEY WOLF ANCHOR JIM FLINK You're watching multisource tech news analysis from Newsy. In honor of Earth Day, Greenpeace released a study alleging the world’s largest tech companies really aren’t that green. San Francisco’s KGO explains. “The environmental organization criticizes several companies including Apple, Facebook and Twitter for the enormous amounts of energy they use and calls them to commit to using clean renewable energy sources.” And the dirtiest of them all according to green activists? Apple. CNN: “Apple's data-storage practices earned the lowest ‘Clean Energy Index’ score. The score considers the percentage of these data centers' electricity generated by ‘clean’ energy such as solar or wind power versus ‘dirtier’ energy sources, such as coal and nuclear power.” The main culprit appears to be the company’s 500,000 square-foot data center in North Carolina which Greenpeace says, only uses 5 percent clean energy. The facility consumes as much energy as 80,000 homes in the U.S. or a quarter of a million homes in Europe. Greenpeace says Apple is thinking economically -- not ecologically. "Apple's decision to locate its iDataCenter in North Carolina … indicates a lack of a corporate commitment to clean energy supply for its cloud operations … [I]n addition to tax incentives, access to inexpensive energy, regardless of its source, is a key driver in Apple's site selection." To the contrary, on its website, Apple highlights how small their carbon footprint is. “Apple is committed to ensuring that working conditions in our supply chain are safe … and manufacturing processes are environmentally responsible.” But a blogger for ZDNet argues - should the environment be the first thing on these tech giants’ minds? Or should they focus on - well - technology? “I do believe the cloud computing could be more inherently green than the current model, but I agree that energy efficiency shouldn’t be the only focus. These companies have the might to make a difference.” So, who is this cleanest? Greenies say -- Yahoo! -- with a 56% clean energy index. Sure, the search engine is eco-friendly, but it’s not doing too hot from a business standpoint. “From a purely business perspective, none of this matters, of course. Yahoo, for example, may be among the greenest of cloud providers, but the company itself has been tanking.” Another fun fact from the report: if cloud computing were a country, Greenpeace says, it would be the fifth-largest energy consumer in the world - behind Japan and before India.

Tomatoes: How do They Grow and Other Fun Facts - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. The most important thing to know about tomatoes when you plant them, is that you want to plant them as deep as possible. Basically, you want the stem under ground, because the stem actually can send out roots. And so the plant automatically has deeper root system as soon as you start putting them into the ground deeper. It also puts out the roots horizontally, so the root system is more shallow than deep. There is one tap root that goes pretty deep, but then the rest of it is more across the level of the ground. That is why they do so much better in the ground than in containers. Tomatoes do best if you raise them off the ground, because pests and diseases more easily go from the soil to the plant. And if you stake them or cage them, then you have more control over their growth habitat. And I like to take just their suckers off the tomatoes, so that it can grow more fruit, larger fruit, better quality fruit. So I am going to show you how to stake and cage a tomatoe. The top six or nine inches of soil gets all the roots. And the reason we stake and cage tomatoes is to help keep the leaves off the ground, where they could contact some soil organisms, and it keeps the plant healthier, allows us to get in and harvest more readily, and gives the plant air circulation and the ability to strech out and get the suns rays. And the fruit starts at the bottom and the clusters come on successively as the plant grows up taller. And that is why it is important to cage them or at the very least stake them. Because a lot of times you have to put a stake in just to hold the cage anyway. So definitely get stakes for your tomatoes. That will keep them off the ground and growing up towards the sun. It is really important to know what variety you have, how long it takes to go from seed to fruit. And on the package of seeds, usually it says wheather 60 days, 90 days or 120 days. And that is because the smaller tomatoes take a lot less time to go from seed to fruiting. And you will want to choose those varieties to stretch out your season, so you have some coming in early, some coming in mid-season and some coming in late.

Pennan Brae's video, 'Need You Now' was shot in the sweltering heat of Osaka this August, 2010. Directed by Mogcat Productions, the premise is of a young man writing a love letter which he folds into a paper airplane & hurls in the air, hoping it finds his love. The paper airplane begins its hopeful journey for 'her'. It navigates crowds by the thousands, skips past planes, trains & automobiles & ventures in an arcade & music store, amongst other places. Pennan & Mogcat looked forward to uncovering attractive backdrops. Luckily, Osaka is full of bright lights & unique settings that only exist in Japan. The pair filmed on the roof of the highest spot in town. They captured a glass escalator 550 feet above the ground. The duo took for the tallest Ferris Wheel & timed their shots within the ride's big circle. They went underground for scenes in the Osaka subway system & filmed in the halls of an infamous 'love hotel' (ie; you can rent the room by the hour). Waived off by security guards & watched warily by security cameras, it was a non-stop adventure from start to finish. & as day gives way to night, the paper airplane discovers its destination & lands at the feet of the girl for whom it was sent. As she opens the note, it reveals the title of the song & message of the author; 'I Need You Now'! Other Fun Facts: -2010 was the hottest summer on record in Japan since 1946 -Osaka recorded the hottest temperatures within Japan during the shooting of the video -2 Ferris Wheels were used in the video, 1 in Kobe & 1 in Osaka -3 locations were used; Kyoto, Kobe & Osaka

Akane the Kunoichi Review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Akane the Kunoichi, a retro ninjutsu-platformer developed and published in 2011 by Haruneko for the XBox Live Arcade Indie Channel. Fun fact! "Kunoichi" derives from the three strokes used to write the kanji for "woman": the hiragana "ku," katakana "no," and kanji "ichi." Put them together and you get a feisty redhead with an unlimited supply of kunai, a master-slash-love-interest in need of rescuing, and 15 levels of wall-hugging, crony-slaughtering, huge-boss fighting old-school action. This CGRundertow video game review features video gameplay footage of Akane the Kunoichi for the XBox 360 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
