While PC users might be familiar with their machines under-clocking themselves to save energy, reduce heat, and prevent damage, the idea is new for Microsoft’s Xbox console. According to an interview Gizmodo had with Xbox’s General Manager of Console Development, Leo Del Castillo, the new Xbox One will be able to cool itself down in a multitude of ways, including "dialing it back to a lower power state."

The team behind the We Love Windows Phone website over in Hong Kong have kicked off their Windows Phone fan giveaway. The LED fans -- when in operation -- display a short presentation stating "Windows Phone" "Simply Faster" (see above photos). Stock is limited, but this competition is open to international platform fans.

Check out the quick demonstration below of the product in action.

All that's required is a short form to be filled out, which includes the question "What would you like to see as the next Windows Phone souvenir to attract the public?" The application period ends on May 23rd, and note that entrants will bear the cost of international shipping. Head on over the We Love Windows Phone's website for the form and further details.

We're not going to lie, the 'I Love Windows Phone' site and fans have a bit more enthusiasm for the launch of Windows Phone than we had here.  What you are watching above is a fan made video made for a "Mango" preview meet-up held in Taipei a few weeks ago. Okay, so it's not like a ton of people showed, but damn these kids have spirit! Anyways, it's a fun video for the weekend and great to see our friends in the Asian markets jumping on the Windows Phone train.  You can see more pics here.

Maybe we should organize a meet-up someday. Hmmm...
