I thought this article from Yahoo Games might be of interest to those of you with gaming consoles.

I notice the 360 power brick gets quite warm as well. I make sure to keep it off the rug for better ventilation. All good advice in that link.


I’m armed and I’m drinking. You don’t want to listen to advice from me, amigo.

Sounds like good advice for all electronics.

I would add one more. No liquids in spilling distance of the electronics cabinet. A friends co-worker spilled a drink and took out a receiver and I think DVR in one shot.

Wow... I would have thought it was a big beer or something at least.
