Use Blackle Search Engine

In the midst of my excitement for being nominated as one of the most eligible bachelor in town, let's not forget that we are celebrating Earth Hour with the rest of the world this Saturday.

As promised (that i will post an Earth Hour article daily), here is one article or tips about taking small steps to save energy everyday.

Since i am always online, my girl suggested that i start using Blackle search engine and make it my homepage. Blackle saves energy by displaying a black-colored background for search result pages. According to its website, our monitor requires more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark) screen.

That actually make a lot of sense. However, Blackle comes under criticism that it does not save as much energy as reported.

Despite the controversy that Blackle saves minimal energy, i'll still be using Blackle since i spend a huge portion of my time online. On top of that, i will be changing my blog layout to black next week.

Save a little better than not doing anything, right?
