How much did the Les Paul Google doodle cost?

That depends on if you’re talking about how much it cost Google to make or how much it cost in lost productivity as workers around the world spend hours playing with it. Extreme Tech breaks it down. And we were glad to see that the Les Paul Google Doodle has been given a permanent home by Google. And in case you were wondering how they did all that neat stuff, Google was nice enough to break it down in the Google Blog.

Bad idea, part 1

If you’re on jury duty, it’s probably a bad idea to try and connect with the defendant on Facebook. A juror in the UK is facing contempt and possible jail.

Bad idea, part 2

The 10 most common iPhone passcodes account for 15% of all iPhones, so if you use one of them chances are if your phone falls into the wrong hands, your phone could be unlocked without initiating the datawipe. So if your passcode if 1234, you should probably change it.

Google changes

Google announced a lot of changes in the past week including city pages – which is being tested in few markets now, but what we hope will bring together Places, Hot Pot, and Offers in a more logical way.

Google is also updating search including integrating voice search from the desktop and changes to image search. Gizmodo says this is because Google wants to be part of the way we think.
