Our family regularly goes through 1100-1200 kWh a month, and it’s been frustrating that I couldn’t really get a grip on where or when the power was really being used. I want to get my power usage under control for three reasons: I want to reduce my $180-a-month-and-climbing power bill. Public Service Company of NH (PSNH) has one of the higher electricity rates in the country (we have a nuke we’re still paying off, among other things.) I’m seriously investigating adding solar to the mix, now that a 30% federal tax credit, a $6,000 state rebate, and lower prices for the panels have converged.
I had been tracking Google PowerMeter, a Google initiative that lets people monitor their energy usage online, but it was only available to customers of electric providers who were using so-called “Smart Meters”.

Since then, tens of millions of people have checked Buzz out, creating over 9 million posts and comments. Plus, we're seeing over 200 posts per minute from mobile phones around the world. We've had plenty of feature requests, and some direct feedback. In particular there's been concern from some people who thought their contacts were being made public without their knowledge (in particular the lists of people they follow, and the people following them). Like Gmail's chat service, Buzz helps you create a social network by automatically setting you up to follow the people you email and chat with most.
So here is some more information about how Buzz works, and some immediate improvements we are making today based on your feedback. 1. 2. 3. Search for "me" on Google. It's no secret that from time to time many of us have searched on Google for our name or someone else's.
When searching for yourself to see what others would find, results can be varied and aren't always what you want people to see — whether it's someone else with your name, or the finishing time from that 5K you ran back in 2002. We want to make that better and give you more of a voice. To give you greater control over what people find when they search for your name, we've begun to show Google profile results at the bottom of U.S. name-query search pages.
These results offer abbreviated information from user-created Google profiles and a link to the full profiles. We've also added links so it's easy to search for the same name on MySpace, Facebook, Classmates and LinkedIn. Don't have a Google profile? Profiles : About profiles - Accounts Help.
