Google Home Page Updated! Sort of.
Google doesn't update its home page very much. In fact, hardly ever. But this week it updated its page to include background images. Fierce Google-ites went nuts and demanded that Google reverse this particular course that made its page look an awful lot like its competitor, Bing by Microsoft. I'm not much for World Cup Soccer but I am very interested in watching the corporate gamesmanship of the Big Titans of Tech: Microsoft, Apple, Google, etc. as they position themselves against each other and battle it out for our hearts, minds, cell phones, and everyday computing life. Within a few hours Google reversed course and made the feature 'opt-in' and also reversible. I like it. And Margarita appears to approve of my choice of background picture!
