The good folks at TrickleStar have provided us with three (yes, 3!) PC TrickleSaver units to award to subscribers of the TMO Express, our daily newsletter that includes all of the TMO and iPO headlines and news briefs each day.
The PC TrickleSaver is a device that lets you automatically reduce the standby power that is consumed by your Mac's accessory devices. It operates on a simple Master / Slave principle where your Mac is the “Master” and the accessory devices are the “Slaves”. The PC TrickleSaver connects to your Mac via a standard USB cable and, using current sensing circuitry, senses when your Mac is On or Off and switches the accessories accordingly. Visit TrickleStar's online calculator to figure out just how much power you'll save with one of these hooked up to your Mac!
