Xbox One, PlayStation 4 Owners Will Have Higher Electricity Bills

Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One consoles consume as much as twice the energy as previous-generation predecessors according to a report from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).

The report suggests that owners of either console will have higher energy bills than those using the older PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. While it may be no surprise that with high-powered graphics come the requirement for more juice, twice as much power is a quite a bump up. With a power and digital rights security scheme that allows the boxes to stay always-on, the next-gen consoles could result in as much as $400 million worth of electricity from standby mode alone. Also included in this number was the standby mode of the Wii U for Nintendo.

The report from the NRDC says that 110 million last-generation console owners have upgraded to the newer machines, the total energy consumption could power the city of Houston, Texas and end up costing households an additional $1 billion in annual bills. via Complex

  6. Image Etiquette Consulting in Coral Gables, Florida. In this clip, I’m going to talk about how to spot a fake Kate Spade. Basically, Kate Spade has a wild variety of purses, so it’s going to be really hard to actually know which one is fake and which one is not. But basically, this is a general tip that will go for almost every purse. You need to make sure how the stitches are made and the quality of the bag on the outside. Another important thing to notice is the little handles, you’re always going to see the difference in stitches when it’s authentic and when it’s not authentic. And even if you actually do find the name inside, you have to make sure that it is actual original one. And the way that the stitches are around it is another way to actually know it. But I would just recommend that you go directly to the store and get it there. Image Etiquette Consulting.How to Spot a Phony Military Veteran
