This is what you see if you go to www.google.com right now and you live in San Francisco. I guess they’re doing geolocation specific homepages now. Yikes! Google’s trying to raise awareness for solar power! Alright, alright, not JUST solar power.
Here is where Google’s “lights out” link goes.
My friend in IM in response to this said: “Hey, did you know some dude figured out that if Google made their page black that it would save like 300000 gillion megawatts or something?”
Well, actually BS. Google outed that guy as wrong, apparently it takes more juice to run a black screen than a white screen. I believe this because it came from google and, well, of all people, they would know the answer to THAT question…. but I’m an electrical engineer and I’m not sure why.
