Google Changes Search Page Layout

Google rolled out some changes this week to its search page layout, giving users more options on the left-hand side of the screen.

We’ve added contextually relevant, left-hand navigation to the page. This new side panel highlights the most relevant search tools and refinements for your query.

You know your company is big when… every news outlet picks up on the changes you made to your website and reports on it as news.

See a sample of the changes below. Personally, I’m used to having the options solely at the top of the page, so it will take some getting used to. Although, I’m very much in favor of the additional options, and the fact you can customize them to your needs and search for photos based on color is a huge plus.

Ellen DeGeneres aired a funny spoof this week on her show in attempts to use the iPhone by using its apps and sending text messages. The spoof was aimed to poke innocent fun at the product, but Apple wasn’t laughing. Apple demanded Ellen apologize and said it makes it appear like the iPhone is difficult to use, when in fact, it’s not. Hold on a second — doesn’t Apple mock Microsoft in those Mac vs. PC ads all the time? And they want Ellen to apologize?!

Check out the spoof below, followed by Ellen’s apology.
