why change the Logo google Chrome?

Google announced Google Chrome browser logo changes. The new logo looks more 'refined' than the previous logo.

Google seems not to change the color scheme. Blend of red, yellow and green with a blue circle in it remain a key element.

The changes are quite striking is the three-dimensional effect on the old logo has been completely left out of Google. Chrome logo now looks elegant with 2D display.

Well, what is the reason Google did it change? Google designer, Steve Rura, said the change was in order to adjust to the philosophy of Chrome itself.

"Because Chrome is built with the aim of providing the best web experience easy and not messy," said Rura in the official Google blog that quoted on Friday (25/03/2011).

What do you think? Is Chrome the new logo better than the old?

Google's 'Clean' Search Results from Site 'Ghosts'

Google realizes many sites 'ghost' (an unwanted presence) in the search engine. They also started to clean it up.

"Now there will be a way to find sites that you really want in the Google search results, that is by blocking sites that do not want to see," says the Google staff who dealt with the quality of search results, Amay Champaneria and Beverly Yang, as quoted by Straits Times, Friday (03/11/2011).

According to the second explanation of these staff, internet users who use search engines have the option to tell Google which sites do not want to appear on a subsequent search.

"Maybe the results will not always correct but sometimes do not taste like it comes from a common, either because the site is considered too offensive, pornographic, or have poor quality," said Champaneria.

"For the time being we allow you to make certain domain block from the search results in the future," added Yang.

Therefore, Google has added a button 'block' to the options listed with links of search results. Blocked Domains is associated with a Google account user. The next search will produce sites that do not want to display a message indicating they had been blocked.

"We added this feature because we believe in giving you control over the results you find will provide a more personalized experience and fun at Google, 'they said. (srn)

Cover Kulit iPad 2 Dijual Rp 12 Juta

Hermes Station (geek)
Jakarta - iPad 2 telah dipasarkan perdana di Amerika Serikat, sebelum ke wilayah lainnya. Untuk melindungi komputer tablet tersebut, konsumen gemar membeli cover pelindung. Bagi kalangan berduit, sepertinya cover besutan perusahaan fashion Hermes ini bisa jadi pilihan.

Ya, dengan embel-embel desain penuh gaya, cover tersebut harganya memang aduhai. Bahkan lebih tinggi dari iPad 2. Versi pertama bernama Hermes Swift dan tersedia dalam 10 warna. Banderol cover ini mencapai USD 820 atau sekitar Rp 7,1 juta!

Jika Anda berpikir harga Hermes Swift mahal, versi kedua yang dinamakan Hermes Station bahkan lebih mahal lagi. Harganya mencapai USD 1.400 atau jika dikonversi ke rupiah berada di kisaran Rp 12 juta. Bahan pembuat cover ini adalah kulit binatang dan desainnya cukup berkelas.

Hermes memang terkenal suka memajang barang dengan harga menjulang terkait reputasinya sebagai rumah mode kelas atas. Bahkan dikutip detikINET dari Geek, Senin (21/3/2011), sebuah gantungan kunci dijualnya di kisaran ratusan dollar.

Bagi mereka yang tak sanggup membeli cover tersebut, sebenarnya Apple sudah menyediakan cover sendiri yang dinamakan Smart Cover. Bentuknya cukup bagus dan bisa dijadikan tempat dudukan iPad 2. Harganya lebih masuk akal.

Nokia Mulai Kerjakan Windows Phone Pertamanya

Jakarta - Tampaknya Nokia tak ingin berlama-lama dalam mempersiapkan ponsel Windows Phone 7 (WP7) mereka. Sang CEO Stephen Elop pun memaparkan, saat ini Nokia mulai mengerjakan handset Windows Phone pertama mereka.

Sabtu (19/3/2011), Elop mengatakan kepada Reuters perihal dimulainya proyek Nokia dengan Microsoft tersebut.

"Kami saat ini tengah mengerjakan handset Windows Phone pertama dari Nokia," ujarnya. Berita ini memang tak terlalu mengejutkan. Pasalnya Nokia memang mamatok target bahwa ponsel WP7 mereka sudah beredar di pasar tahun depan.

Perjanjian antara Nokia dan Microsoft tersebut berlangsung lima tahun. Di satu sisi Micosoft memang mencari partner hardware yang cukup mumpuni, sementara Nokia sedang mempertahankan pasarnya yang kian menurun, tergerus Android, BlackBerry dan iPhone.
