Apple has always been know for its unique take on new technology and the amazing ways they use it. However, changing the way our home and work electronic “tecnoverse” operates is a new angle. Stepping out of the interface world and into the “power” industry in a big way, Apple has filed a few new patent applications that may set the world on it’s toes.
Apple’s new, proposed, hydrogen fuel cell technology will not only give apple a leg up on the “cool” factor of its devices but also on the quality.

There are some behemoth companies that read the Apple news last week and filled some boots with warm yellow liquid.
