Best Widgets To Save Energy

Written by on September 20, 2009 under Software, Widgets

Saving energy is something that matters to a lot of people these days, and if you couldn’t care less, maybe it’s about time you did. For one, you get to save on your finances as well. Another reason, which is more altruistic, is that you do your bit in helping the environment.

Did you know that there are widgets out there that can help you in this regard? I have been looking up some of these widgets and found that there are quite a lot to choose from. Here are some of the best widgets that you can use to save energy.

Computer giant Hewlett-Packard is doing its share in saving the earth by providing a host of free widgets on the site The widget runs on most any PC, and does not interfere with the regular functions. So how does it help? When you leave your computer unused for a while, it will show you a pop up reminding you to turn it off. It also computes how much energy you have saved over time.

Another widget that you can use to save energy is Verdiem’s Edison application. Just like HP’s widget, this baby’s free to use. The great thing about this widget is that you simply enter data such as the hours you use your computer the most and how much energy you want to save – the program does everything else for you. And to encourage you to save more, you can see how much energy you are saving at any point.

Try these out and do your part!

Show Off With The New PokerDIY Widget

Poker has become a huge thing in the recent years. Perhaps it is due to the immense exposure that it has enjoyed, thanks to celebrities playing poker and to poker players becoming celebrities themselves. I’d like to think, though, that poker is such an exciting and challenging game that this popularity couldn’t be helped – exposure or not.

In any case, it is quite common for people to create their own poker leagues these days. Bars hold their own tournaments even. If you have a poker league or tournament of your own, you might want to check out the widget from PokerDIY, which is a web site that connects poker players from all over the world. The people behind PokerDIY describe their baby as a “lovechild of the union between a social network for poker players and online poker league software.” Basically, through the web site, poker enthusiasts can find likeminded people and join existing home games or tourneys or invite others to join their home game or tourney. Of course, there are other tools available on the web site, such as forums and poker-related software.

This brings us to the poker widget that they are currently promoting. The widget basically allows a user to show off poker tournament statuses and scores on any web site and Facebook. Other information such as statistics can also be shown through the widget. The best thing about the widget is that it is FREE for use!

If you are already using PokerDIY, go ahead and grab the widget code. If you’re still looking for a good poker league management tool, go visit PokerDIY now and see how it can work for you.
