It's pretty elementary as Sherlock Holmes would say to his inquisitive offsider, Watson.

 

I love the name that DIY Kyoto has given to this energy monitoring device. 

Do It Yourself Kyoto is also pretty indicative of the type of company behind this.

Popcorn Hour A-100 Network Media Tank Review

Written by Paul Moons on . Posted in Video

Read more: Popcorn Hour A-100 Network Media Tank ReviewIn creating the original Xbox, Microsoft unwittingly helped create the single most affordable and feature packed media player of the Standard Definition age. The free open source Xbox Media Centre (XBMC) software - when coupled with a modified Xbox - sets the standard for home theatre playback.
