Google is killing the planet, or something

Along the line of Austin Hill’s Dark Green PC, there are people out there making sure that all that whitespace on isn’t wasting energy (up to 750 megawatt-hours per year, some people say).

The solution: Blackle. You’ll find it easier on the eyes at night, too.

    The poor, the 2nd/3rd world, and people that generally don’t care to update their machines… which adds up to a fair number, I imagine. 🙂

    What’s really killing the planet is my addiction to the computer! It’s past midnight and I’m writing this… I should be in bed! 😉

    Good link – Thanks.
    I also find it has the added benefit of NOT automatically redirecting or giving me results instead of results.

    using a white screen saves a good deal more energy when using an lcd.

    honestly, that high contrast shit gives me a headache.
