The Project: I want to find a product that will allow me to turn on my USB devices from the computer.
The Reason: I have set up the home system so that i can log in from home and use the Mini to do stuff. At tthis precice moment it is backjing up my websites via FTP. I am about to set it to do some batch processes on my music and video files. In order to do this i had to plug everything in before i left home which meant they were running for hours before i needed to use them. Not Very Green!
I’d like a system where i can program it to either turn on each USB device at the mains on screen, or to tunr them on when the computer comes on or both!
Solution 1: Go home made! But this is an almighty fafftastic route and there is a risk of death! Instructables – A USB Power Controled Plug Strip. With Isolation.
Solution 2: Eco Strip– not sure if this will actually do the job!
Its coming up to the time to renew my mobile phone contract. URGH!
I hate this whole process! Its always really painful and stressful trying to get what is a fair deal.
I would like to upgrade my phone but i dont necessarily want an iPhone. The things i want in a phone are as follows:
- 3.5G or faster
- Large Disk space 8GB or more
- Good Camera
- Nokia N900
- Nokia X6
- Nokia N86 8MP
- Nokia N97 Mini
- iPhone 3Gs
