80GB PS3 Core System goes for the green, more energy-saving?

it seems as though the new unit is more energy-saving. For one, the new model used only 130 watts as compared to the 155.2 watts that the 40GB model used when Metal Gear Solid 4 is on play. Other stats show that the new unit used only 111.9 watts when idle on the XBM, while the 40GB was guzzling up to 125.8 watts. [Link]

Dial A Human Cuts Through Automated Phone Prompts

When you’ve just about had it with an incorrect bill, a faulty product, or anything else you have to call a 1-800 number for, waiting for the automated operator to finish listing all the buttons you can push can feel like rubbing salt in the wound. Dial a Human, a web directory of shortcuts and end-runs around unnecessary prompts, eases the pain. Right now, the site’s just a long, single-page list of what button combinations to press to get to a real person, but user submissions can bolster the page to become a more universal directory. Take a quick read down the page, and you’ll realize that jamming on “0” repeatedly just won’t cut it any more. [Link]
