Google is trying out a new look (see above). Over the years, we've become accustomed to Google modifying it's logo to honor holidays and current events (see Google Doodles). But now, it seems it is trying to update its navigation bar. There's only one problem. This look really isn't "new."
Google trying to look more like it's wanna-be rival, Bing, is the equivalent of Facebook trying to look more like MySpace. Seriously, you would think that with all of the geniuses working at Googe, SOMEONE would have been able to come up with something more creative. Oh, well, apparently, this is just an experiment (See TechCrunch). Maybe it'll get better.
Oh, and with all of the excitement over making their front page look more like Bing, it seems some of the folks at Google forgot about the time change. I've been getting my once-a-day Google news alerts an hour early every day. Did anyone else notice this?
