Anybody else notice the weirdness with Google lately? How they're not showing anything except the logo and search bar until you actually move around the mouse and such.
I don't think there's a joke to it--I think they've taken their philosophy of minimalism and taken it to the next logical step. It's just a matter of time before Google's home page is nothing but a blank screen where you type and magic happens.
Oddly enough, that's more or less the way opening a new tab in Chrome works.
There may be nothing to "get", but that said, I still don't get it.
