ʎɐp ɐıpǝɯ |ɐıɔos ʎddɐɥ

facebook has been down or service disrupted for two days during launch of google+ its new rival.  my issue is not w social media which i do not use.. second life was enuf virtual connection for a lifetime..  as sartre observed "l'enfer c'est les autres." 
my issue is w google's black navigation bar and all the happy hype about it.

there is a method to google's madness.  they're calling it Elasticity:

  • Elasticity: In the early days, there was pretty much just one way to use Google: on a desktop computer with an average-sized monitor. Over a decade later, all it takes is a look around one’s home or office at the various mobile devices, tablets, high-resolution monitors and TVs to see a plethora of ways to access the web. The new design will soon allow you to seamlessly transition from one device to another and have a consistent visual experience. We aim to bring you this flexibility without sacrificing style or usefulness.

  • so the purpose to make the illegible black navigation bar at the top of google news, search et al is to make one's pc look more like a mobile device
