Stupid Is As Stupid Does
So last week we thought we were really cool and posted links to our past newsletters for y'all, since you asked. Imagine how stupid we felt when the emails started coming in about how the links were screwed up and they all went to the same (wrong) place. Well, it turns out that our email service was to blame (yeah right) and something funky happened between our test run and live run. Anyway, we learned what not to do, so we now have them posted on a web page that you can click to, bookmark or whatever.
 
Don't Be Stingy With The Reads
You'll notice that we now have a Facebook Share link at the bottom of certain articles. If you particularly like any of them, feel free to try it out and share with your like-minded friends (of course, you'll need a Facebook account). Just as an FYI, this is sort of a test run to get the bugs out and MAY need some tweaking. So, we'll look forward to your emails telling us what idiots we are, if it doesn't work. Don't worry, after last week, we're used to it!
 
It's Football Season!
Whether you're a Packers fan or Bears fan, I think we can agree that we're ALL fans of cool technology. So before Sunday's game, have a look at this week's cool reads, brought to you once again by the great people over at HITEC.
 
That's it, enjoy!
Previous Cool Reads Newsletters
Let's try this again!

If you've come on board recently and missed any of our previous newsletters, or you've deleted them and now realize what a huge mistake you've made, you can now get access to the web version by clicking here or HERE. This was kind of a last minute thing so you'll have to check out each link to see what's there, but we're gonna list all the articles there too (and spruce it up a bit), so you can find what you want more easily.

Also, don't forget you can find all the other parts of any article series in the "Series" tab located near the top of the right hand column. (It magically appears when you access any article that's part of that series.)
Turing Machines

The Green Standby
The Green Standby
Don't let your TV or other appliances suck power when they appear to be off.
 
Most of today's home appliances have no genuine off switch. They are instead equipped with standby circuitry over which users have no direct control. Even when the appliance appears to be turned off, it is still consuming energy without any purpose.
