Google I/O – Another clever thing by Google

Google is famous with their cleverness – to make little happy joyful things. We developers are all familiar with their tricks, such as “snowy day” , or “do a barrel roll”.

And it’s time for a new trick!

The purpose is simple: get the ball from “input” to “output”.  You are given a variety of “pieces” to make your machine. The pieces include redirectors, elevators, walls,… and so on. Can you make the best machine with only fewest pieces? Let’s try!

Some beautiful machines:

Google isn’t a history book anymore

Google

It’s not as cool and hot as the barrel roll trick, but the other news from Google today really catch my eyes.

The story is here.

In short, Google made changes to its algorithm to alter search result behaviors. In stead of results with more than several months old, now you get newer results (maybe only minutes after it was online).

It mean that Google changed the way they do searching. They do change. They are not satisfied with what they achieved, but they seek to improve on. And this improvement is one of the things that Google could do better.

(From my own experience, in past it took several weeks to a new blog post from WordPress make it way to Google search results.)

Cheers for it!
