Oh this is just too rich. Check out Jeremy Zawodny's latest post showing Google copying a page from Yahoo. I'm starting to think someone put something in the water over at the Googleplex.
I've long suspected that Google's graphic design department consists of one 13 year-old running a PC that has MS Paint as it's only software.
This would seem to corroborate that. It'd be easier, faster and cheaper to copy some other company's design than to pay the outrageous fees of a precocious 13 yr old.
