(NEWSER) – Is your iPhone running? Better shut it off, because that device is using more energy than your refrigerator. A new report says that a fridge uses just 322 kWh per year, compared with the 361 kWh for an iPhone, if you include its wireless connections, data usage, and battery charges, the Breakthrough Institute reports. But that's nothing compared to information and communications technology worldwide, which uses 10% of global electricity—and that's a low estimate. New trends like wireless broadband could make the figure even higher.
