How to bring blueberry bushes back to life?

I got a pair of blueberry bushes recently. They were potted and intended for ground planting, but I was unable to plant them. I was out of town for a week and a half and they went about that long with little or no water. When I returned, the leaves were brown and crispy and the soil was bone-dry. I put them in the ground and watered them copiously every day, but it's been a few days and they seem no better. Is there anything I can do to revive them, or am I out of luck?

Organization focused on 3 plant species, all adept at filtering water

I can't remember the name of this organization, and I've seen online crowds do better. The website I remember was focused on 3 plants, and the organization's major goal was cleaning waterways by replanting in places where we have uprooted for the sake of a better view or access to the water etc. It's possible they've branched into more species, but at the time they seemed pretty dedicated solely to a tree, a bush, and another plant. Thanks, here's hoping.

BioLogic washer - how does it work?

At some trade show recently, Whirlpool showed a prototype washer called BioLogic that ("if feasible") relies on hydroponic plants to purify and reuse the water [pdf, p17]. So, are there any users out there who go to Kitchen and Bath trade shows, and know more details about how this works? Alternate question for hydroponics enthusiasts: What kind of plants are those in the washer?
