Vampire Slayer Act of 2006 Approved by California Assembly
 
The Vampire Slayer Act of 2006 has been approved by the California Assembly. AB1970, a bill proposed by Assemblyman Lloyd Levine, would force companies to put labels on devices that tell consumers how much energy is being used while the device is in standby mode. AB1970 supporters claim that the average household will pay an additional $200 per year due to electronics on standby. However, not everyone is pleased with the Vampire Slayer Act -- the Consumer Electronics Association, Electronic Industries Alliance and the American Electronic Association believe the bill will ultimately confuse consumers.

this is a good thing, maybe make a suggestion over here in belgium? Most people don't know what appliances use in standby.

Eh. I am still rather divided on the Vampire Slayer Act of 2006. I am sure that we will manage a way to ruin it so consumers end up getting screwed.
