Power Meter Thanks for checking out this Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview demo. Browser Power Consumption The browser power meter displays the minimum setTimeout callback interval which indicates the browsers impact on power consumption. The shorter the interval, the less time the CPU can enter longer sleep states therefore consuming more power and impacting battery life. The web platform allows for periodic callbacks via window.setTimeout() and window.setInterval(). In order to achieve small minimum timeouts on Windows Vista and Windows 7, browser vendors decrease the System Timer Resolution from the default 15.6ms which comes at the cost of power consumption. Internet Explorer 9 RC is aware of the user's power profile and by default does not lower the System Timer Resolution when running on battery. If you would like to explore timer resolutions further, you can run ClockRes to display the current System Timer Resolution and see when and how different browsers change it.
Dr Vino's wine blog » wine talk that goes down easy Dr Vino's wine blog The Pour Blog Jamie's wine blog [For the uninitiated, a 'blog' (or weblog) is a web journal with links. This gives me a chance to add short, 'off the record' style items that wouldn't merit a separate article. I try my best to keep entries informal, frequent, brief and (hopefully) interesting. For more information about Jamie Goode, see the about the author section.] A NEW FORMAT FOR MY BLOG It's time for some change around here. Added Feb 2010: And an even newer version of the BLOG IS HERE. See also: My blog from January 2006-February 2010.

STEVE HEIMOFF| WINE BLOG | A blog about the world of wine Wine Tasting , Vineyards , in France The plastic curtains around the bar Shimokotazawa, Tokyo This is yet a a couple metro stations outside the Yamanote district, but on the other side of Tokyo : here is a low-buildings neighborhood with lively narrow streets and few cars, the area is residential, thickly inhabited and with its own gentle character. I discovered the place years ago and even though I didn't visit it often, it's one of my favorite spots in this town. I had called Terumi who lives in the area so that we could go out for a drink and find another casual bar, we had taken a few addresses including a few ones provided by John W. who has a good experience with these, but we actually decided to try this one which was very close to the train station, it was cold and this would leave us with more time with Terumi.
