Today I was looking at internet news and found this article about a Google search engine that has a black background. It’s called Blackle. As I read about how it saves so much energy I couldn't help but think "Why hasn't Google changed to this?" Such a small step on millions of computers could help out the environment a lot.
After checking out the site I was slightly disappointed, as the search engine only shows links. It didn't have the added convenience of videos, images, shopping- and all the other things that are expected to be within a click. This is probably the main reason for not using this energy efficient Web site.
However, as I continued reading and searched for further information on the subject, the positive results were limited to certain types of screens. In fact, with some types of screens, the black background uses even more energy than the white screen. Apparently the answer to being energy efficient isn’t as easy as using a search engine with a black background.
With the popular trend towards "going green" businesses and individuals are re-vitalizing the way things are done in favor of the environment. For some this could mean steps as small as getting more energy efficient light bulbs, while others will conduct a full overhaul--perhaps going paperless, installing solar panels or other more dramatic energy-conscious steps.
The idea that helping the environment involves sacrifice is a misconception. The choice to go green, personally or with a business, does not have to be a dramatic change in lifestyle. It can be simple changes to everyday life such as reusing bags, deciding to reuse towels before washing them, or carpooling to work. With these miniscule steps, anyone can make a positive impact on the environment.

Microsoft Digital Advertising Solutions is making a mini-movie about the disjunction between advertisers and consumers. It's called "The Break-Up" and it's replete with actual Hollywood actors, a movie poster, and a great tag line:
She is a consumer.
He is an advertiser.
All she wants is genuine affection.
All he gives is loyalty reduction.

The Latest Strategy for Spam: Hijacking
Posted on April 25, 2007 by Kevin G.
Spam messages infest our inboxes and inundate filters on a daily basis. It seems to be a continuous war of programmers vs. spammers.
According to Commtouch’s 2007 Spam Trend Report, 85-90 percent of all emails are sneaky spam messages. According to the report, the newest and most prominent form of spam aims to hijack the likeness of a legitimate email message.
The early forms of spam were easy to spot from subject lines using the seven words never to use in email marketing. Now they carry the likeness of a normal message with a mixture of images and text. Since most email service providers track an opened message from images populating, the average spam will now have an image at the top to fool spam filters.
When the newest methods of filtering are developed and integrated, they are already outdated by the continuous cycle of spam sophistication. It seems like an endless rat race to stay on top. You can read more about the newest trend in spam messages here.
