Here's a power strip worth mentioning. The color-coded Smart Strip is designed with the PC user in mind. See that big blue plug? That's where your main PC power cable goes. The other red ones? That's for stuff like your monitor, printer, and speakers. When you turn off the PC (or whatever is connected to the blue plug), it shuts off power to the red sockets as well, to help you conserve energy and not rack up your electric bill because you forgot to turn off your monitor when leaving your apartment. There are also other plugs for regular items you want on all the time such as an alarm clock. A handy item indeed, the Smart Strip is for anyone using a lot of peripherals with a PC setup. It's available now for $31.
