Sounds like something DEC had years ago.  I have two square power
boxes (they aren't strips).  There is one white outlet and four or
six black outlets (can't recall the actual #).  The white outlet is
the control outlet.... power that on, and all the black outlets turn
on.  Quite handy.

A friend of mine who used to work at DEC gave them to me (as I recall).

I haven't seen any others since, but would grab them should I ever
see them again... quite usefull.
