Every little helps

For those of you worried about energy consumption:

When your screen is white, be it an empty word page, or the Google homepage, your computer consumes 74 watts of power just displaying it, and when it’s black it consumes only 59 watts.

The obvious response: make Google Black!

Apparently 'Blackle' could reduce global energy use by 750 Megawatt-hours a year which sounds pretty good to us!
