Google with Larger Search Box Now

Google has made its search box larger than before. Google Marissa Mayer, Vice President, Search Products & User Experience just announced this last night that the search box's size was increased.

He added. "Although this is a very simple idea and an even simpler change, we're excited about it — because it symbolizes our focus on search and because it makes our clean, minimalist homepage even easier and more fun to use. The new, larger Google search box features larger text when you type so you can see your query more clearly. It also uses a larger text size for the suggestions below the search box, making it easier to select one of the possible refinements."

Blogger is 10 years old now

Don't know if you have seen the blogger's birthday logo on the blogger site or not? I just have noticed it by today only and that's inspired me making this post. Well! I am little late..no I am a lazy bone..

As Google already mentioned about the blogger 10th birthday in their Official Google Blog. You can the post here at http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/09/happy-10th-birthday-blogger.html

Blogger was released in August of 1999 and after that we have seen many changes yet in the blogger blog's customization and look & feel.

In celebrating 10th birthday of Blogger, Google have been releasing birthday presents as a way to thanks millions of users of blogger announcing 2 more, courtesy of two Blogger partners:
  • Socialvibe: When Socialvibe approached us about finding a way to empower the Blogger community to help raise funds for charities, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to leverage Blogger's reach to do some good. Starting this week, Blogger users can show their support for charities and raise funds by adding a gadget to their blog. The Socialvibe team has challenged us to raise $50,000 for charity by the end of the year, and we're pretty confident we can beat that.
  • InfoThinker: If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch and a Blogger blog, you're in luck. The team at InfoThinker (makers of the iPhone app BlogPress) was eager to help celebrate Blogger's birthday. Earlier this week they submitted a free version of BlogPress that works only on Blogger to the iPhone App Store. Blogging on the go has never been so easy! Keep an eye out for the app.

The Net is 40 years old now

For something that we cannot feel or see or realise, our World Wide Web (www) turns 40 years on September 2nd 2009 which born on 2nd Sept, 1969 at the University of California which has changed our thoughts and and our lives in ways we are only just beginning to realise. The internet truly shrunk the world, being the harbinger of an information evolution. Now, if we see Microsoft and Google has a big hand of support in our advancement through the internet in surfing the www plots and getting information through worldwide by web browsers.

This mode of connectivity was born at the University of California 40 years ago last week. And when was the first time it was attacked? In 1988, by 'Morris', one of the first internet worms which are the common thing in the web world now. Everyday we suffered through many malwares, trojans, viruses and worms online and in way to protect our desktops and laptops from these cruel online junks.

Anyways, but this www has change the world a lot - changes our thinking, get to know more about anything etc and its still in a way of advancement everyday.
