Another brilliantly useless program

Some times I just wonder how much oxygen could be saved if the "inventors" of these sort of "inventions" would just stop breathing. Install an application that must constantly run, use CPU time, memory and bandwidth so the user can track how much CO2 you have saved.

How else would they know how good to feel about themselves.

CO2 Saver
# Save energy when your computer is idle - Reduce electricity usage;
# Reduce harmful CO2 and other emissions;
# Lower your electric and cooling bills;
# See how much you've saved!
Nevermind this function is already easily accessed through the control panel. The bottom line here appears to be another way to route users through the little used search engine. Perhaps if they just turned off all their servers, plenty of electricity would be saved.
