Energy efficiency gets more efficient for Digital Trends readers

Energy efficiency software company Enervee and Oregon-based have partnered to bring energy efficiency information and utility energy rebates to readers of the online tech-review and news publication via the Enervee Charge widget.

Readers browsing a product review on Digital Trends are now able to see available energy efficiency rebates provided by their utility — without leaving the article — with the Enervee Charge widget. The Charge widget renders the rebate information directly on the article page, and for many readers, even allows them to claim the rebate without ever leaving the Digital Trends website.

Utilities offer these rebates–which can be worth as much as hundreds of dollars — to encourage consumers to choose more energy efficient products and drive energy savings, but many consumers are unaware of the opportunity.

“By offering these efficiency rebates to its readers, Digital Trends is doing something amazing,” says Luis Castro of Enervee. “With more than 24 million monthly visitors, Digital Trends could help drive thousands of kilowatt hours of energy savings, in addition to helping its readers save money.”

The Enervee Charge widget is already in use by online retailers such as Appliance Connection and Goedeker’s, and now becomes the first publication to provide the service, further extending Enervee’s unique data and insights on energy efficiency to drive more energy efficient purchases.

“We are excited to be working with Enervee. Adding this widget to our reviews furthers our mission to give people real information about the products they use and the impact they have on their lives. ‘Tech for the way we live is our mission’ and this partnership is a perfect example of how we are able to bring it to life,” said Jeremy Kaplan, Editor in Chief.

Video encoding could soon get a lot more efficient in Windows 11
Windows 11 updates are moving to once a year.

Microsoft is bringing a new video encoding API to DirectX 12 in Windows 11. The new API aims to help app developers tap into the raw power of GPUs so that video editing tasks can be more efficient, and speedy.

Now available in preview to third-party apps, the API is native to Windows 11 and should allow video engines to better perform with the modern standards of DirectX 12. Both the N264 and HEVC codecs will be supported, which are two of the most popular in many video editors such as Filmora or Adobe Premiere.

Tidal launches free subscription tier and more ways for artists to get paid
Smart phone with the Tidal logo

Tidal, the streaming music service once co-owned by Jay Z, now has a free subscription tier, bringing it in line with Spotify and Amazon Music, both of which offer free listening options. Known as Tidal Free, it's only available in the U.S. for now.  The company says that the free tier will offer access to its entire music catalog and playlists, with "limited interruptions." It did not specify if those interruptions would be ads from third parties, or simply promotions for Tidal's paid subscription options.

Tidal Free joins the $10 per month Tidal HiFi tier, which was previously named Tidal Premium, and the $20 per month Tidal HiFi Plus (previously Tidal HiFi). The $10 per month tier now includes lossless, CD-quality tracks, which was previously only available at the more expensive $20 per month price. This was likely done to keep pace with Apple Music, which added lossless audio and Dolby Atmos Music to its standard $10 per month offering earlier in 2021. Amazon Music also includes lossless, Dolby Atmos Music, and Sony 360 Reality Audio (360RA) in its standard $10 per month plan.
