The old special "one-offs" were quite fun.

The new page-wide banner is SO F***ING HORRIBLE.

Actually has made me think they're a less healthy thing than I used to. It's the same old story - the less an organisation/person etc lets you aware of about itself, the more you can project onto it.

A humungous disaster from a branding poin-of-view.

Google is the new Microsoft.

...and hark at Microsoft Internet Explorer -vs- Chrome.

Microsoft's biggest attack on Google based on their argument that Google uses Chrome to gather data from users.

Who's the badman?

I thought this was something to do with the Winter Olympics. It is horrible though.

i'm confused, can you link to what you are referring to? i just went to www.google.com and it looks pretty much the same it always has, white screen with google logo and search box.
