The biggest standby loss of energy, sometimes referred to as "leaking electricity," occurs in modern consumer electronics. Even when your television is turned off, it's really in standby mode so that it can respond to your remote control. Along with TVs, VCRs, cable boxes, and satellite dishes account for the largest share of a home's leaking electricity, roughly 35 percent. Audio equipment makes up another 25 percent of standby losses; a small compact audio unit can draw 9 watts while it's ostensibly turned off. Communications equipment such as answering machines, cordless phones, and fax machines are responsible for an additional 10 percent of home electricity losses. Today's estimates say that the average household constantly leaks about 50 watts of electricity.

When cameras used only film, consumers didn't have much of a choice about where to get their photos printed, unless they had a darkroom at home. Now, with 80 per cent of cameras sold this year projected to be digital models, consumers have more options than ever about where, or even if, to print their snapshots. One result is an all-out war among retailers, printer manufacturers and on-line companies like Snapfish for a piece of the $8.2-billion (U.S.) pie that the Photo Marketing Association International said consumers spent on printing photos last year
