And no, its generally NOT worth getting an entirely new PSU just for efficiency's sake. Odds are its only going to be 10% or so more efficient than your existing PSU, and if you are only sucking down 100 watts or so, then it would take a long time to make up that difference. Unless you run the computer 24/7.

And for your call for more socialism.. We've already had the massive shift towards a socialist society. Corporate socialism, that is. The ignorant fantasy of socialism is here. Oh it's so glorious and all of our problems are solved! Endless wars supporting a global empire, corporate bailouts, a bankrupt government, central bankers counterfitting trillions of dollars whenever they want, every industry lobbying congress for ever more 'favors', boom & bust economy, failed regulatory agencies, the list of socialist insanity here is endless. Oh socialism, you are my dream come true! /sarc

You've just described terminal end stage Capitalism.

The savings automation brings should be put back into the social net, not into some CEO's pocket.

That is the problem we've had forever though. The wealthy accumulate wealth and do everything they can to avoid paying. Google was just in the news for using tax havens to avoid paying taxes. They were even proud of it. That's the crap that needs to get sorted out That's the real discussion to have.

Yup.

Obviously when robots take everyone's jobs then everyone's new job will be to make better robots to take THOSE robots' jobs. Obviously. And somebody is going to have to design the robots to go on Faux News shouting, "dey tuk er jerbs!"

Conservatives aren't afraid of anyone or anything taking their jobs. They are independent and do what they must to provide. They work because they don't make excuses for themselves.

Liberals on the other hand, well we know they'll be complaining. Add robots to their long list of things other than themselves that prevent them from holding a job!

Hahaha

I remember the "Robots will kill everyone's jobs" in the 80's.

Obviously these posting kids like Cutter wouldn't remember, they only remember what CNNMSNBC tells them so they can throw their 'socialist' talking points in every thread.

So putting billions of people out of work will be easily remedied by some education will it? And even if everyone was capable of post-secondary education - which most are not - what exactly would they be doing that would be viable and not automated? Who's going to pay for said education as well as the food, clothing and housing required while people retrain? Without a massive shift towards a more socialist society it'll result in all out revolution and warfare.

Calm down.. It won't put billions of people out of work forever. They'll get new jobs as long as their inalienable rights are preserved. No, education doesn't necessarily solve the problem either. Frequently people over-educate and end up in debt to banks for far longer than needed. Human rights and liberties are the essentials we need to worry about.

And for your call for more socialism.. We've already had the massive shift towards a socialist society. Corporate socialism, that is. The ignorant fantasy of socialism is here. Oh it's so glorious and all of our problems are solved! Endless wars supporting a global empire, corporate bailouts, a bankrupt government, central bankers counterfitting trillions of dollars whenever they want, every industry lobbying congress for ever more 'favors', boom & bust economy, failed regulatory agencies, the list of socialist insanity here is endless.

Political freedom can only be preceded by economic freedom which is preceded by monetary freedom.

I assume if robots do everything, then we just give people credits for food, shelter, entertainment and travel. We only have to work today because the fruits of our labors are essential, if robots did that, then it's perma vacation, woohoo! Humans Win! BUT... there are so many other paths to take that aren't as rosy and some control freak will make this a very bad thing most likely.

By the time robots are capable of taking all our jobs, they won't be our jobs anymore anyway. They'll have all been outsourced or "made redundant."
