Google is introducing a new feature that brings a whole new level of personalization to Google by letting you add your favorite photo or image to the background of the Google homepage. You can choose a photo from your computer, your own Picasa Web Album or a public gallery hosted by Picasa.
In the down left corner of the homepage, if you are browsing www.google.com (Google in English), you’ll see a link “Change Background Image” or “Sign in to see your background image” if you are not logged in with a Google Account. Once clicked, a window will open with a back shade. There you can easily choose an image from your computer, from Picasa albums, from a public gallery or from the “Editor’s Pick”.
If you’re still having some problems please don’t hesitate in asking me.
Google plans a test that will provide 50,000 to 500,000 people with fiber-optic broadband Internet access with a network speed of a gigabit per second starting as soon as this year.
“We’re planning to build and test ultra high-speed broadband networks in a small number of trial locations across the United States. We’ll deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today with 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections,” Google product managers Minnie Ingersoll and James Kelly said in a blog post Wednesday. “Our goal is to experiment with new ways to help make Internet access better and faster for everyone.”
At this point, the question is pretty much: when will Google dominate the world?
