[image-1]The simple Green Gas Saver app shows you when you are accelerating or turning too fast for optimal gas mileage. Keeping a ball in the center of a meter on the screen yields a higher resulting score, so the application also helps challenge you to drive better by making a bit of a game out of it. When you accelerate too quickly, the diameter of the ball increases and an alarm sounds to warn you that youve accelerated to quickly.
The cornering meter also works by making a ball increase with acceleration and moving to the side to indicate I when youve taken a turn too quickly. The app gives a total score at the end of a trip so you can measure how green your drive was which helps you squeeze more mileage out of that personally and environmentally costly tank of gas.
The obvious danger of this app is that youll be paying more attention to the feedback your phone is giving you about your driving than your driving, so please use a copilot to monitor the app for you while driving or just check your score when at your destination.
In closing (warning: editorial sentences forthcoming), as a Floridian, I urge you to check out Green Gas Saver to see how you score so we can consume as little gasoline as possible and hopefully help thwart Obamas new push for drilling off our coast. What about that whole Hope and Change platform you ran on, Mr. Obama? I hardly call going back to the same old push for more oil and tax subsidized nuclear power plants Change." Going back to old, dirty technology is not change and I guess Im supposed to hope you can figure that out before you force another one of your plans on We the people." I hope you change your mind and get a clue. Maybe you can figure out what to do about the stockpile of nuclear waste we already have before you give more taxpayer money to private industries that will add to it while making a nice little profit for them.
Mr. Obama may not know that The Gulf of Mexico already has a growing red tide pollution problem and we have these things called hurricanes that are known to level anything in their path, so adding more oil rigs to the scenario only courts more disaster no matter how much big oil guarantees the supposed safety of their new drilling technologies. So, until we have an iPhone app that keeps politicians from doing a one-eighty on their campaign promises, well have to make do with apps like Green Gas Saver to control what we have control over.
One last question: Will Obamas health care cover all the oil-sickened sea life after a spill or will they only be covered by oil?
