Hmmm, "more effective power save mode"? I wonder what it can do that windows doesn't already do, if you use the "Power Options" control panel applet. The site doesn't have much info, but it uses phrases like "our advanced algorithms will predict
". Advanced algorithms? Doing some time-keeping and multiplying with values from a database?
Now, the idea of tracking power usage and keeping a database of power consumption for various devices sound good, but it doesn't seem to me that the app does that much, it just looks pretty and has buzzwords. I wonder what their agenda is, and how they plan on making money.EDIT:
indeed it doesn't seem like it's actual power settings do anything, compared to the standard:global warming vs. local cooling
...apart from being a bit more "accessible" for the... less gifted... users (it can
be hard clicking start->settings->control panel->power options).
The LocalCooling UI looks pretty, but it does seem to confuse Screenshot Captor
(alpha transparency). I do wonder if they take CRT vs. TFT power usage into account.global warming vs. local cooling
Also, the UI's "snap to edge" feature means I can't move it to my secondary monitor. Yay for developers that don't think about multi-monitor setups >_< (which probably also means they don't do multi-mon power usage yet, either).
