Mini Power Minder: A Plug That Cares

The Mini Power Minder is an eco-friendly device that can actually make your life easier. You plug your computer in the primary outlet, along with a USB. When you turn off your computer, the second plug turns off automatically.

This is the perfect solution for those running printers, desk lamps, and all sorts of other stuff we might generally be too lazy to turn off. Sure, the $14.95 device only has one automatic plug, but there's no reason you couldn't stick a power strip into the socket*.

Now if we just weren't too lazy to order it.

*Gizmodo assumes no liability should you burn your house down.
