Woody & Ted: "The Perils of Technology"
Posted: Friday October 3rd, 2008 by

In the November 08 issue of Maximum PC magazine there's an article titled "I Can Use My Compuer FOR THAT?!". The article describes 35 "amazing" thing you can do with your PC. Nestled amongst the 35 is Eaton's Home Heartbeat System, a bit of technology that lets you remotely monitor different aspects of your house.

Sure the system doesn't quite leave you in the lurch by locking you in or out of various potions of your home, but it is designed to let you monitor stuff in your house such as locked/unlocked doors, water/power sensors, motion sensors, water shutoff controllers, a Home Key that lets you check on everything with a semi-small keychain remote, etc.

There's nothing here that's gaming related but I thought it was cool, if a bit pricey, and wanted to share it with you guys. And the comic, well... I'm sorry it was late and not really spectacular, but apparently I locked myself in the bathroom.

The truth is I was out of town all day yesterday, went to bed early (for me) [without doing a comic] and woke up really late.
