google sidebarI really like Google’s redesign! The search results look like candy now! Although isn’t using talk balloons three times (see left) seem kind of repetitive? Maybe we should stop inventing new web mediums until we all decide on what icons will be used for them. Kids in ten years aren’t going to “get” why save buttons have an image of a floppy disk on them. As things get abstracter, points of physical reference diminish and icons just get more confusing (i.e. what the hell is this??) So why not just use random objects? Let’s all agree to use a slinky to represent “updates.” Bam. Done.
