Think Gothic and Search with Blackle

 

Yes, you read that right, I want you to don the black clothes, lipstick, nailpolish and those foot tall platform boots that allow you to look down on the world. Okay, I’m horribly stereotyping here and this really has nothing to do with the gothic image. It does have a lot to do with saving evergy though or so says Mark Ontkush. (Surprise)

Blackle is a search site that was created by Heap Media based on the idea that the white screen on your compter uses more energy than a black or dark screen. Powered by Google, Blackle is intended to demonstrate that small differneces in your lifestyle, even if it’s just a change in your search engine, can help save energy.

Called the Black Google, it is not a Googled owned site, but as it has the search engine giant’s resources, it can be used as an alternative. So put down the black lipstick (you can’t pull it off anyways) and start using Blackle for your searches. Every little bit helps.

  1. I prefer using Darkoogle http://www.darkoogle.com another black Google and is available in over 40 countries http://www.darkoogle.com/international

    Best of all its got the ‘similar page’ option in the result page like the normal white Google. I use that a lot.
