Looks like Google saw that Bing changed their logo the other day and wants to stir up some search engine beef by changing theirs and make it more simple. Looks like flat is the new trend these days. If you can’t tell the difference look at the image below.
Now you see it?
Google glasses aren’t even available to the public yet, but some establishments are already banning them. Belltown’s 5 Point Bar is one of those establishments and is the first Seattle business to do so. The Owner, Dave Meinert posted “For the record, The 5 Point is the first Seattle business to ban in advance Google Glasses, And ass kickings will be encouraged for violators.” on their Facebook page. He did later admit that it was somewhat of a marketing stunt, but at the same time did not want the people in his bar filmed or photographed.
Time to educate for the day. With constant new apps and websites being developed, certain words are going out of style. For example how people don’t really say “I’m going to search for this” anymore but instead say “I’m going to Google that”. Now another word has finally taken over, Tumblr over blog. Google reports that “Tumblr” is now being searched much more than “blog” mainly because of it’s convenience with tag searches and quick results. Click HERE for the full story.
Well this would be a very bad situation for any gadget user. While testing the charge on a Google Nexus 7 in China, the device started to emit smoke and ended up exploding!

“If your gmail is down right now, you’re not the only one. There’s currently a widespread outage, judging from Twitter—our own Maureen O’Connor reports that her gmail is displaying this sad “Temporary Error” message. We have no idea what’s causing it, but for now, the best course of action is to pretend that you can’t do any work at all without your email and go outside.” _ Source
In the month of December Bing officially became the second most popular search engine behind Google. Bing was launched in 2009 and has cracked 15% of the search engine market share last month. Yahoo bumped down to third place, had 14.5%. Pretty sure Google will stay ahead for a long time, unless Bing pulls off a miracle.
