Even if you’re a fan of animated gifs—say you were the first to email your friends the slow loris very slowly eating a rice ball (goo.gl/KDDX1)—you may not know that the origins of animation go as far back as 1879 and Eadweard Muybridge’s “zoopraxiscope” (see our doodle homage to Muybridge: goo.gl/PGQW3). Gifs have been around since 1987 and have become the de facto standard for short animations on the web, from pony glitter text (goo.gl/iZoEZ) to grumpy cat memes (goo.gl/bC9um).

Starting today, there’s an easier way to unearth those gems: when you do an image search, click on “Search tools” below the search box, then select “Animated” under the “Any type” dropdown box.

We’ve also added a second handy filter: if you’re after the perfect picture of Easter basket clipart (goo.gl/XutAa) but must have one with a transparent background, simply select “Transparent” under the “Any color” dropdown box.

It's all well and good Google+ revised their UI, but if I see a notification for a new post and I browse to see it, shouldn't that "1" just automatically go to "0"?

Exciting release for #MusicMonday  — the soundtrack for +Man of Steel by +Hans Zimmer, in theaters this Friday! If you liked his work on The Dark Knight Rises and Inception, you'll most likely enjoy this.

I can't believe I think this is neat, but I do. It's neat.
 
Phoneception: A phone accessory for your Android phone

The +HTC Mini connects to an HTC smartphone via Bluetooth. This smartphone accessory is meant to be able to do simple tasks such as make calls and check text messages, all without having to take your smartphone out of your pocket.

HTC must be running out of ideas.
