Google Powermeter

Interesting initiative by Google – empowering people to measure their daily power usage by appliance to help them understand what is burning the coal the most so they can adjust their behaviour for the betterment of their financial bills and the overall global environment.

In Demo at the moment, and requires the installation of “Smart Meters”, but overall a tremendous idea and one I’d sign up for!

On the flip side, there is no limit to the amount of personal data that Google will soon be storing on each and every one of us (who subscribe) with the influx of useful widgets and tools like iGoogle, Google Latitude, Google Powermeter (in the near future) and many other Google tools aimed at saving us time, effort, stress, money and so forth.
