The Bright Side of Dark



What if we could save energy using Google? That's the idea behind Blackle. Apparently, a computer exerts less energy displaying a black screen than it does a white screen. With that thought in mind, a group called Heap Media believes a black Google would conserve a significant amount of energy if multiplied by the number of searches conducted on Google each day. So if you're not quite ready to go hybrid or buy those expensive light bulb, just use blackle. It's certainly an interesting idea, despite it's name. (I would would have gone with Google Dark or something less forced feeling.) Maybe Google will decide to go green by going black and take up the cause on their own. Another example how a little goes a long way.

I hate to be the nerd, but even if the thing is true for CRT monitors, it does the exact opposite for LCD screens. LCD screens have a backlight no matter what. The energy is spent to make the pixels OPAQUE, so that when you show black, it's more energy consuming that showing white. But the differences are so small, that if the whole world used Blackle [and had CRT], it'd be like turning off a 100 watt light bulb. It's something.

Continuing the nerd theme :) it also needs to be pointed out that white text on a black background is known for being hard on the eyes. The reason most successful websites have pale or white backgrounds and black text is because this combination gives superior usability, particularly over any length of time.

You might want to note that blackle is just the homepage of www.searchincolor.com, which has offered web search in different colors since a much longer time. In general, all dark backgrounds on light text are energy saving-less illumination of the CRT-less pixel activation.

My favorite on searchincolor.com is the white background with green links-although not energy saving-it is really better for the eyes.

If you have questions such as how a car accident lawyer can help you, you certainly seem to ignore the overwhelming support that lawyers provide representation of Auto Accident. However, a lawyer car not only to represent the complainant about the incident, but also non-conductors and drivers. Car accident lawyer is one of the types of lawyers are not only involved in the representation of your car accident, but it is also involved in making sure that you are in a safe position.

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
