Google is pushing for more efficient power cords for PCs. Totally random, seemingly, but a fine idea.
From the Times:
The Google white paper argues that the opportunity for power savings is immense — by deploying the new power supplies in 100 million desktop PC’s running eight hours a day, it will be possible to save 40 billion kilowatt-hours over three years, or more than $5 billion at California’s energy rates.
Is there a Mac version? I HATE HATE HATE the way the Mac handles power.
