A Meter that Knows More About Your Spending Than you do.

iGoogle has just brought out a new gadget. It shows the users power consumption in near-real time!

If people know about their power-eating problems (where they are spending the most power), they can easily fix the problem. If they didn’t have this gadget, they wouldn’t know until maybe years later, costing the user a ton of money.

Over the next three years with support from the Obama Administration’s proposed stimulus package, more than 40 million US homes are set to receive these ‘smart meters.’

Smart meters so far have not shown energy usage to the user, and Google says that that is unacceptable. they feel that the user has a right to know all about their own energy problems, and that they should have the right to keep that information private, if they so wish.

Google employees are testing out the product, so if they think that it is ok, then we get a go at it.

This movie shows you all about it, but due to problems like an uncooporating internet connection, in the classroom and in the library, you have to go to YouTube to watch it. Go to YouTube, and type in the search box, ‘google power meter’, and the movie is the very first one that you see.
