It’s going to reach 100F in Raleigh today. That means staying inside is pretty much the only thing to do today. So, seeing as I’m stuck inside, I thought I’d share some weekend Picks.
First up, Google has revealed the process it went through to come up with its new favicons:
There were, apparently, a whole bunch of rejects:
Anyway, it seems even Google’s not married to the new favicons. It’s seeking your suggestions too!
OK, on to other Picks…
- I don’t agree with Rafe Needleman’s suggestion that Twitter should shut down, while it does some repairs. Sure, outages might send users elsewhere, but closing the doors will guarantee it!
- Google’s PR wheels are on full spin, with its recap of the opening ceremony of its new Lenoir, NC data center.
- I’ve just made the switch to Firefox 3–even though Google has yet to release a compatible toolbar!–and if you’re considering the switch, this great video will walk you through the new features. Be warned, not all my bookmarks transferred, and I had to re-enter a lot of passwords, but overall the switch has been worth it.
- Meanwhile, Google’s spending big bucks on outdoor advertising in Russia.
