Methanol-powered PC

PCs don't go down well with booze, but that idea could offer a sign of things to come as computers of the future could run using a 'direct methanol fuel cell' (DMFC) method that involves methanol which is then converted into an electricity to power a computer. This is in essence, a new type of fuel cell that can be refilled whenever you run out of juice, and will definitely be a greener way to running things. Imagine the positive environmental impact if all computers were to run in this manner - those folks at Energy Star would be out of a job then, and tree huggers will have to look elsewhere for victims to pick on.
