    Apple recently filed a patent on technology for a smart home energy management system dashboard that will help people monitor the energy usage of their electronics like computers, iPods and iPhones.  The technology is called HomePlug Powerline Networking and it would allow users to see in real-time the amount of energy their electronics are using and to manage this usage so they can charge them at the best time for best prices, etc.  So far, the patents have only been filed but there is speculation over whether and when this will come to the market.
