UK Wants To Ban Energy-Thirsty Plasma TVs


I remember when the United Kingdom used to run this stupid planet, now it’s all about banning anything that might offend anyone or, in this case, draws “too much” electricity. Yeah, OK. Apparently, if we want to trust the UK Sun, government leaders in the UK will propose a ban on electronic devices that suck up too much electricity, draining the lifestream from the planet or some other nonsense. Plasma TVs are said to be among the biggest offenders, with many of them “falling foul” of proposed standards.

Oh, and there are plans to eliminate altogether the standby function of electronic devices. Awesome.

Hooray for knee jerk reactions!
