Got Time to Save the Planet?
by Dave Alm

You're going to love this -- you save a heap of money AND do some good for the planet at the same time. Go to the bottom of our web page and click on the small green button that says "CO2 Saver". 

This takes you to the CO2 Saver main page. Once there, click on the Install Now button. This will download this nice little program for. When you run it it will take over the power management of your computer, saving you money -- between $20 and $65 per year. Put it on all of your computers and multiply the savings! We save over $300 a year with this little program.

CO2 Saver works transparently in the background, reducing the amount of juice your computer is pulling. It shows you how much CO2 you have saved from being emitted into the atmosphere. (It would be nicer if it showed the amount of money you had saved, but for free I'm not going to quibble.

It incorporates a nice little search window, but I almost never use it, preferring to use Google from my browser. You can also click to share it with a friend or co-worker. I am surprised more companies don't make this part of the minimum install on all of their computers. Now get out there and save the planet (and some cash)!
