iGoogle theme!

Sunday, February 10th, 2008

You wish your iGoogle looked as cool as mine does:

iGoogle Cuttlefish Theme

(Click for Enlarge)

If you’ve never used iGoogle before, its designed to be used as your browser’s start page. You can customize it with any number of widgets and themes, and add multiple tabs containing even more widgets! Google recently released their API that describes how to make your own theme, so I wasted no time in making my own cuttlefish based theme! You should be able to apply it to your own iGoogle (temporarily) by clicking here:

Cuttlefish Themed iGoogle

If you want the theme to persist, you need to use the iGoogle Theme Manager widget, available here.

New CuttlefishTech Intro

Friday, February 8th, 2008

First, Here’s the old one, where a group of cuttlefish circle an ancient medallion lying on the sea floor.

And here’s the new one where a cuttlefish swims through a reef, passing over some mysterious glinting pieces of metal in the sand.
