We’ve had a few people as us about this. Well here is what Google say:
Google have released “App Search” in its labs today which allows you to search from your email including matching results from your documents and sites.
Check out the full details on the Google Blog:
There are reports that Facebook is asking users to enter in their Skype details to search and connect with more contacts. A report from TechCrunch gives us more details:
Today when a colleague and I opened up Chrome and faced with our Google search page there was a slight change, there was a background. Most of us are aware that Google are now giving people the opportunity to set a background on their Google search page, but this was to be optional. Now Google are giving you the following option:
“Curious about today’s homepage? Add your own background image now”
When you click the link, you are taken to your Google Account login and given a choice to change your background settings:
You can pick files from your computer, your Picasa Web photos, Public Gallery or the editors pick.
I am not sure that this is very useful, it takes away the simpleness that I like about the Google Search page, but I am sure that there are many who really appreciate this feature.
It doesn’t look like you can disable it at the moment, and we are looking for a way, but you can create a white image and upload it.
For the moment it looks like this is just in the UK. May be it is a mistake, may be not.
