Whether it’s your cable box draining electricity or your laundry machine running wild,you might be wasting energy without realizing. JouleBug gives you simple tips to stop the waste; you earn points and badges while saving money.  Play with your friends on Facebook and Twitter to win bragging rights for the energyyou conserve and the stress you take off the planet. A leaderboard in the next version will make friendly competition even easier.
