DALLAS — Thin is cool. Thin is sexy. Thin is chic. The thinner, the better.
If I were talking about us, about people, that whole "our bodies, ourselves" kind of thing, then I would be shouted down, pilloried as a dangerous disseminator of a wrong-headed and hurtful bias that has distorted our society's definition of beauty and driven countless young women and men into eating disorders in pursuit of an impossible ideal.
But relax. I'm talking about our electronic gadgets, where the pursuit of absolute, ultimate thinness is not only acceptable, it's celebrated.

cellphones, iPods and more.
Imagine a world where your cell phone or iPod never runs out of power and you can leave all your clunky chargers at home.
I tested three solar-powered devices that aim to make this world a reality: a backpack that lets you charge a variety of devices, a Bluetooth headset and a small, handheld electronics charger that clips onto your bag. And if the sun isn't shining, all of these devices can also be charged through conventional means.
