ik kan blijkbaar nog iets doen voor het milieu naast stoppen met de afwas doen onder een lopende kraan, de lichten aanlaten wanneer ik niet thuis ben en rijden met een Lada die vijftien liters verbruikt. Ik heb onlangs naar de presentatie van Al Gore geke

LCD panels consume the same black or white or other.
CRT (cathode ray tube) (still 25% of monitors) + Plasma + OLED (the future) use more electricity for white than for dark.....

Black Google Would Save 750 Megawatt-Hours a Year  それがスゴイのかどうかは。。

Assuming that users run Google in full screen mode, the shift to a black background will save a total of 15 (74-59) watts. Now take into account that about 25 percent of the monitors in the world are CRTs, and at 10 cents a kilowatt-hour, that's about $75
