Everyone is aware that how crucial electricity is in present scenario.
When it comes to internet surfing, We love to google things, dont we?

www.laalten.com was created inspired by 2 ideas:-
- A black background web search so as to save electricity
- Integrate all searches at single place: Web, Email, News, Sports, Finance, Social Networking.. everything

So, one can search for anything in any desired website from a single page and at the same time save energy because the screen is predominantly black. A given monitor requires more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark) screen**.

Simple but very very effective. Isnt that great :)
Join your hands in this enegry saving mission.

Always use this site for search and make sure to SET IT AS YOUR HOME PAGE.

Please spread the good word among your friends, neighbors and forward this email to as many peoply as you can.

Lets use www.laalten.com and save energy.

Thanks,

** Take at look at Google, who gets about 200 million queries a day. Let's assume each query is displayed for about 10 seconds; that means Google is running for about 550,000 hours every day on some desktop. Assuming that users run Google in full screen mode, the shift to a black background will save a total of 15 (74-59) watts. That turns into a global savings of 8.3 Megawatt-hours per day, or about 3000 Megawatt-hours a year. Now take into account that about 25 percent of the are CRTs, and at 10 cents a kilowatt-hour, that's $75,000, a goodly amount of energy and dollars for changing a few color codes.
