I first read about this on Lifehacker. Google now lets you choose a theme for your Google homepage. The neat thing is that I picked the Tea House theme which has a skyline in the background. When I chose the theme, it asked me for where I lived so it could make the skyline match that of my home town. Pretty nifty 🙂
These are the kinds of things that really aren’t necessary, but adds that little bit of extra oomph to the experience.
[update]skyline = sky coloring to the time of day (bright or dark) [/update]
