This power strip has quite a few things going for it. Some are eco, some are just intelligent. First, it'll clamp onto your desk, giving you easy access to all your power (no more crawling around under the desk.) Second, it's modular, so you can expand it to have from one to a dozen outlets. Third, every outlet has a wrap-up area around it, to prevent that previously un-preventable rat's nest.
But, if that's not enough for you ecogeeks, the power strip also prevents vampirism. Power vampires are devices that constantly suck power from your walls even when you think they're off. It's a conspiracy, I'm sure, between electronics manufacturers and utility companies, but it wastes a huge amount of electricity. This power strip detects when a device enters standby mode. It will flash an attractive warning light for a few minutes and, if you don't tell it not to, it will cut the power from the device in question.
It's an elegant solution to an annoying problem. Now we just have to wait for it to show up at your local electronics store.
