New Power Saving Search Engine By Google

April 14, 2008 at 5:37 am (Gadgets, Google, New Technologies) (, , )

Google is the second Brain to many of us. We use it frequently. It uses
white screen which consumes higher power.

Read the following?

“If Google had a black screen, taking in account the huge number of page
views, according to calculations, 750 mega watts/hour per year would be
saved?!!!!!

In response Google created a black version of its search engine, called
Blackle, with the exact same functions as the white version, but obviously
with lower energy consumption:
Help spread the word.. Use ” www.blackle.com“…

    Test conducted by Google itself http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2007/08/is-black-new-green.html has proven that Blackle may save little energy with CRT monitors but will actually increase energy consumption with LCD monitors.

    Because of this misconception, it has created a easy money making business for the creator of Blackle. It has been estimated by many SEOs that he should be pocketing over thousands of dollars each day from google ads.

    Also it is very obvious that Blackle is violating Google’s TOS and adsense policy, “Publishers are not permitted to make prominent use of ‘Google Brand Features’”.

    I personally think it is so unfair for other publishers that are putting huge amount of times and effort into writing quality contents for website to attract visitors and increase their income from adsense, while someone just violate the adsense policy and Google isn’t doing anything about it.

    If anyone agree with me and want to stop Blackle, then just visit Google’s adsense violation contact form and lodge your complaint about Blackle. STOP BLACKLE!

    There are around 25 different versions of “black google” online. The best one I’ve found is http://www.cleanblack.com. Cleanblack is the only version that allows you to change the text colors of the google search results. Try it yourself by going to http://www.cleanblack.com/theme/
