Google Fades to Black


Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Google, Internet


Blackle

In January, Mark Ontkush wrote a blog that commented that using a black version of Google would save about 3000 megawatts a year, since a white page uses 74 watts and a black one only 59. Toby Heap thought Mark’s idea was such a good one that Blackle was created. The site reports that just since its Febuary release, 95,918.333 watt hours have been saved. You know that Gear Live is trying to help the world become a greener place, so we thought we would give it a try and found that the darkened screen not only worked fine, it had a nice Zen effect. Everybody say “O-h-h-h-m-m-m.”

(Thanks, Toby)
