The gas and electricity have been off here for about 90 minutes...makes you realise how reliant you are on power to get anything done. I now have another cellphone in the house - built inside a gas/electricity meter from start-up energy company Oxxio. The device sends gas and electricity meter readings by cell-phone to a central headquarters. Big brother is watching me...but what can they learn from meter readings? Saves about 100 Euro a year on the energy bill this way.
