It'll make great post-apocalyptic architecture.
This reminded me of the domes in Ergo Proxy.
Will this one be called "Mosque?"
That's pretty bad, although it's not that unusual for them to have terribly high standby draws like that. On the majority of them, there is a tangible difference in energy use though (as in you can touch them and feel the heat difference).
With computers it's better yet to use a phone or tablet instead of opening a laptop.
A big one is to turn your cable box off when you're not using it. Ever notice how bloody hot most of them get? It's because they're horrendous power guzzlers. People who aren't nerdy enough to program universal remotes properly just turn off the TV itself when walking away, leaving the cable box to run like a little electric space heater.
I'd drive a cheap-to-run car with torque like a supercharged V8 and my electricity would come from sources that put out their radioactive waste in neat chunks instead of slowly spreading it out the top of a smokestack!? This awful socialist future is going to ruin us all!!!
...unless you're good looking enough to make a career out of it.
They might take that as a challenge. North Carolina made global warming illegal after all.

They sure do want to make killer robots but this has little to do with it.
If you want to look into the dystopian aspects of this technology however, consider the effective intelligence boost that would come with high-capacity, high-reliability memory and then consider the cost of elective brain surgery. Right now the rich aren't any smarter than the rest of us, what if they were!?
Do they have RSS feeds or Twitter Bots or something that tell them "Muslim story on First Look - Troll Force GO!" or something? It's fkn amazing.
I always wonder the same thing...and the answer is "maybe:"
It's only wage-slave click-baiting modern journalists who are responsible for this. It only takes one scientists to slip up and use a funny or sensational nickname for a particle (which will happen eventually), and then these media idiots run with it.
What class action lawsuit? Did you not read about the binding arbitration agreement?
