Hippyshopper's eco verdict on Blackle.com
The whole of the internet has been banging on about Blackle the past few weeks and its supposed energy-saving ways. But for those of us who remember www.black-google.blogspot.com from years back, they’ll also remember the controversy surrounding whether it is actually eco-friendly or not.
Sister-site Hippyshopper has come to the rescue yet again, and given us their eco verdict. Supposedly Blackle actually causes an increase in monitor power consumption in comparison to the standard white Google we’ve all come to know and love, so using the goth-friendly search engine could actually be harming the environment even more.
Head on over to Hippyshopper if you’d like to find out more about the site and its claims, it makes for an interesting read, although does lead me to think if we really care enough about the environment, to the point where we’d willingly strain our eyes on a black website all day…maybe we should just abandon computers altogether and resort to good ol’ paper and pen. Recycled, natch, needless to say.
Hippyshopper’s verdict on Blackle
Blackle is cooler than regular Google – literally
iGoogle, youGoogle – we all Google
Google’s solution to YouTube problems: give us all your videos

I really believe that if we all search with black google and get black results we can save energy.
It’s been discussed time and time again, a black search portal offers very little in the way of power saving overall. All this site does is generate revenue for it’s owners which is put to no good use at all.
As an alternative search portal try –
Any profits from using this portal are actually put back into environmental projects to cancel out a portion of energy etc that is consumed.
Hey it’s a start, and every little bit counts in my opinion..
i prefer skinnle, it´s more flexible http://www.skinnle.com
