At the Google I/O Conference, according to news.com, Google lifted the iron curtains and gave a sneak peak of the Google Data Center Operations. Google Fellow Jeff Dean spoke a bit about the mystic realm of the Google data centers. Google has 36 data centers across the globe.

Google Maps getting a Facelift?

May 31, 2008 114 reads by Navneet Kaushal

According to Philipp Lenssen, Google seems to be working on a bit of redesigning in the Google Maps. Philipp states that these changes are visible only on Firefox and not on Internet Explorer. The orange tabs in Google Maps have been replaced with a light blue bar on top with plain blue links reading “Get Directions” and “My Maps”. The search examples that were printed in gray above the input box, are now inside the input box itself.

This new design template gives the impression of a lighter and simpler Google Maps.
