Saving Energy With Google...err...Blackle

So, Google's most recent attempt to help save the world is a new search engine called Blackle. By using a black screen with white text, per blogger Ecoiron, Google hopes to contribute to saving mega-loads of megawatts. EcoIron proposed that 200 million daily Googly queries could result in some serious energy savings if a black background was used instead of the current.

I'm sure the energy conserved has to add up, so it can't hurt to try. And personally, I like the black screen. A little less draining on my eyes. That said, the name does ab-so-lute-ly nothing for me.
