"Reducing climate change by saving energy is an important effort we should all join, and that's why we're very glad to see the innovative thinking going into a variety of solutions. One idea, suggested by the site called "Blackle" (which is not related to Google, by the way, though the site does use our custom search engine), is to reduce energy used by monitors by providing search with a black background. We applaud the spirit of the idea, but our own analysis as well as that of others shows that making the Google homepage black will not reduce energy consumption. To the contrary, on flat-panel monitors (already estimated to be 75% of the market), displaying black may actually increase energy usage. Detailed results from a new study confirm this."
It is very well said by one blogger that "I suggest Blackle to change their tag line to “Over 100 thousand watts wasted” to avoid misguidance"
Blackel is not the only one. There are many of its kind like :
These all are Bullshits. Making money on the name of 'Google' and 'energy saving'. Blackle and all are getting money per searches. Whenever you search something in blackle, blackle shows some sponsored links (i agree that it does not show sponsored links ALL the time. SOME time only it shows this link and from which Blackle makes money.). For showing this sponsored link, blackle gets some amount of money. The way Blackle shows this sponsored links is also different than great Google. Try searching for 'Blackle' on Blackle search and you will see link to "Bollywood Bindaas" as first result !!! Per appearance of this link, Blackle charges a lot. (FYI : Try searching for Blackle on great Google and you will see the difference.)
Look at below shown snap shot showing junk sponsored links first :
Let me again say that (As I have already said in Smart Google - Stupid Blackle and Blackle - Saving energy one search at a time),
A search in Blackle does not necessarily return the same results as a Google search. Means Google is "Synonymous of find" while Blackle is Blackle only.
My this blog is kind of suggestion to Google to start same thing officially. Instead of having this energy saving Google search getting owned by another company, Google should step forward and launch (Or acquire) black Google.
I wants to see Google like this :
