Dell Ad, Frontpage of WSJ, Slash Energy Consumption up to 45%

In today's print and web, Dell has an advertisement headlined Slash Energy Consumption up to  45%, Unlock your Hidden Data Center.  The url for the site is here. IBM and HP have been running multiple ads on Green Data Centers.

This is in direct contrast to my post on Going Green from an Architect's view.
