I can’t believe Larry Page is a double space after a period guy. You’d think the CEO of one of the biggest tech companies EVER would realize you don’t do that. *facepalm* Where can I email him, this is ridiculous. It must have been his stupid secretary or intern, right? There’s no way he’s that uninformed… Here’s where it gets really interesting though. It’s only that way for the first section. Subsequent sections have the CORRECT one space after a period. Really strange. Google needs a copy editor.
Old school interpretations of what Google, youtube and Facebook would look like if they existed in 1997. The painfully slow server speed is a nice touch.
I was delighted to finally get an invite for Google+ today (actually 2 within minutes of each other, go figure). I have to say, it’s very slick, clean and if I had more friends on it, a Facebook replacement for sure. Everything there so far has impressed me. I love the idea of circles, I like their photo viewer with nifty photo details and I love how everything works very well and smoothly. I think Facebook is so overwhelming these days with Apps and ads and a billion different types of requests coming at you. I’m hopeful that Google+ will continue to mature in a very “Google” fashion and keep things simple, elegant and useful. So far I’m very happy with it and I even pulled out the ol’ smartphone and played with the Android app. That is also pretty good looking and easy to use. So if you’re on Google+ look me up. If not, would you like an invite?
Interesting. I’m intrigued by Google’s attempt to line up all their products in a new, consistent and updated design. It’s kind of a shock compared to their older stuff but will probably be a really great experience when it’s all rolled out. I’m looking forward to watching more and more Google sites that I use everyday get their new looks.
Quite possibly the best thing to happen to the web since CSS. I did a quick run with it and the results were great. Now, what would it take to get the world to start using this?
