    I really like using the Negative Mode when I am reading, or updating my calendar, and mundane tasks like that. I find it is much easier on the eyes and allows me to focus. My question is, can this mode harm my macbook pro screen? Will it shorten it's life?

    Black takes more energy to display than white, so it'll drain your battery a little faster.

    And by little, I mean it's infinitesimal.

    Not at all. Not even by a second.

    Since it's designed for people with bad vision, it should be easier on the eyes.

    I don't understand how black takes more energy than white. Is it because no matter what, the back-lighting stays on, so for black it has to expend energy to block all of the backlighting?

    No…

    Some people like to be silly and say silly and uninformative things.
