Make Friends With Your Computer Screen
January 12, 2010
The personal computer is the mainstay of this American boy’s modern life. Obviously, I spend a little too much time on this manmade contraption. If you’re reading this, then you’re a wordpresser, and thus a blogger, and whether you like it or not, you waste a lot of electricity through that computer screen looking at you dead in the eyes. I found out the other day that the more white being displayed on that screen, the greater amount of electricity consumed. So am I right to assume that there is an opposite effect when the screen is displaying more black? Yes, yes I am. Blackle.com has proven this, just check it out and see for yourself. I have to go read, but remember, my friends: when you’re not using that computer, shut off that monitor. Tomorrow we’ll take a look at the person of the week, a certain Ms. Wangari Maathai.
