Seems pretty pointless to me barring the recorded information which could deem somewhat useful. The price of this thing would be astronomical but it would be nice to see what other manufacturers do to fill out the market.
Oh boy! Now someone can hack a PSU and cause it to blow!
All in all, this is probably a much better solution than WOL, especially because it's wifi-connected. Should be very useful for HTPC applications; I hope they make options in small form factors...
It all depends on implementation. This could be good potentially (you could accurately measure the power draw on each rail, which would be nice), but I could also see it turning out to be awful. It has to be a good PSU first, and all the additional stuff should be the second priority.
Now we have to wait for the jonnyguru review and see what kind of quality it is. I bet its gonna be over 200 bucks at launch.
for sure it's over 200.
