Google reader has changed. Gmail has changed. Let’s all be up in arms about it!
Erm, what? Why? Things have to change to move on. Yes, I understand in Google reader’s case it’s more than just cosmetic changes. The way you socialise on it has changed. But Google are trying to change the way you use them. They’re trying to BE the Internet rather than just a search engine, just an email system and various other disparate entities.
I love the fact they they’ve even, basically, created a whole new Google+ Android app to make it look and function a little bit more like the web-based version of Google+. Just wished there were more people using it. Hopefully there will be with time.
Visually, Google looks a whole lot cleaner for me. I like the clean and airy look it has now. I love that it’s the same colours and look and feel across all of their areas now too.
So for trying to bring it all together, I give Google a thumbs up. I do realise I’m probably supporting Google’s bid to take over the world, but rather Google than anyone else at the moment!
