p>So, Google+ looks interesting. They’ve clearly put a lot of thought into these things. The “Circles” thing sounds boss for people like me who like putting people into lists. Facebook has “lists” like that except they’ve been sorta phasing it out and hiding it in drop down lists because no one used it, which annoys me. I don’t get the “Sparks” thing, isn’t that just Google Reader? And what is Google Buzz’s place in this whole thing?

Over on Regular Google, they appear to be getting rid of the colorful icons that I love so much in favor of some unGooglely red & gray jazz:

Is there no end to their tyranny?
