Last night I logged into my Gmail account and I see that there is this new feature, themes. Oh well, I say finally it’s time for such a move from Google, since I noticed that some changes have been made on their CSS. For some time right now I have noticed that every single input box in gmail is incredibly … well square. Too round and square.
Now when it comes to themes in Gmail, if you ask me it was really about the time. There were few Firefox addons and they were ok and all, but lets face it, you change your computer and there goes your Gmail look.
And then as I said it, last night I log into my Gmail account and there’s a notification about themes. I’ll present the some screenshots, for all the other stuff that I don’t say here you can read the official Gmail blog post. Too say the least, there are some really interesting themes. The one I finally picked is most interesting me for several reasons.
I’m using theme named “Tree”, it’s incredibly slick, second depending on weather conditions theme will change. So last night when I first tried it, it was raining so the whole theme got “wet” and there were drops all over the place. Tree on the bottom was swinging by the wind and stuff like that.There are also few themes that are “dependent” on weather conditions. Which is definitely *thumbs up

Just few days ago, I had this conversation how Google is becoming … well just like any big corporation. However I still I couldn’t stay negative when it comes to Google. For begining, when I was opening foolcontrol, I have it all prepaed, my own mail server to everything. But still I’d use some of Google services, search, analytics, code, google earth and so on.
I really know a lot about Google, so I’m just trying to separate them from companies such as Microsoft … When I first found them in 99 or whenever, I was literally looking for something for at least half an hour, Google and there 20secs …
But lately, I’m getting cornered with Google. First, I use Gmail, I have 5 mail accounts in it, Google has my data. Hell just until recently Google was holding my blog data. Anyways, but I’m just being careful what I write with Gmail, when I need something to be sent without passing by “censor” system or anything like that, well I’ve got separate email account for that one ;)
But one thing that was bothering me the most about google, was Google Web History. Ok, what’s so helpful about google web history, that I can look what I was looking for, and go through my web search trends and so on? Yea, except that Google will go through it too, I’m setting what I’m searching for to Google as well.
