Google Bus Stop – Themes

Google Themes - LifehackerWhile scrolling through Lifehacker today, I came across this post about a fun new addition to the Personalized Google Homepage – Themes.    Google is now offering 6 customized themes that you can apply to dress up your version of Google.  While they are not earth shattering designs, they are a fun way to liven up your Google experience.  I chose to use a theme with a scene from a bus stop.  The background will automatically update itself to match the weather in your zip code, which I thought was an interesting touch.  For those of you who like the Personalized Google Homepage, this is worth a look.

As I scrolled further down through Lifehacker, I discovered something else cool for the Google Home Page.  A live television gadget.  While this will certainly not improve my productivity, it is really cool.  There are a wide range of channels that you can choose from and view right there on your desktop.   Perfect for when “something is happening” and you have an immediate need to get the latest from your old friend television.   Use with caution.

Thanks to Lifehacker for the tips.

    I use the Bus Stop theme.
    I have tried all sorts of different zipcodes around the U.S.

    Exactly how hot must it get to so the black guy takes off that giant parka?
    I tried Honolulu, HI at 85 degrees and he wouldn’t budge.
