It is the time of year where opulence meets millions of people for the fall of the annual Time Square New Year Ball. This year, the ball is going “Green,” with the use of 9,576 LED lights supplied by Phillips. The ball is capable of displaying millions of colors with infinite designs all while using the equivalent of a few toaster ovens worth of energy. At 11:59 EST tonight view this “Green” ball drop to bring in 2008. While you are at it, visit the Times Square site and sign the virtual wishing wall, and learn more about the 100th anniversary ball drop.
Have a very Happy New Year to all of you and here is to a prosperous 2008!
