This is one of those gadgets, “why didn’t they think of this before?”. The power tap device called CheckTap can be programmed via your PC through a USB cable to control and also schedule which and when your devices are on/off.
This gadget supposedly could save your home/office a whole lotta electricity, so long as you can “program” it. I do assume that most people will be able to program this thing but do have my doubts that over 50% of population will probably be stuck trying to program it. Maybe they can actually make a “smarter” device that you don’t have to program for the future and gadget-lovers like me.
