Energy Saving Core 2 Quad S - Series

Intel recently announced energy saving versions of its Core 2 Quad Q8200, Q9400 and Q9550 CPUs. These S-Series chips are built using the same 45 nanometer process technology used on the regular models and their performance is the same but instead of having a maximum thermal design power of 95 watts they're TDP is only 65 watts. The S-Series is priced higher than its 95 watt cousin and Tom's Hardware has some benchmarks which will help you decide if the power saving and cooling benefits outweigh the price increase.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
