Google's 24, I Mean 14 Hour Experiment

Advertisement

If you used Google yesterday, you probably couldn't help but notice that Bing-like background picture instead of its signature austere white. It was meant to be a 24 hour experiment. Google, however, mysteriously pulled the plug ten hours early.

The official reason: Google is blaming it "on a bug".

Hmmm...

Let me just add that Google's "trending topics" (that is, top searches of the moment on Google) yesterday rounded out the top five with "remove Google background".

I guess a lot of people out there really, really don't like close up shots of Christmas ornaments, desert vistas or fiesta colored piggie banks with large daisy stickers.
