Gmail gets themes

Gmail, the popular email service from Google which launched back in 2004 and is still in some form of beta, yesterday announced that a choice of themes are now available, this news comes only days after the Gmail team added loads of new ‘labs’ options along with video chat right within Gmail. The themes are being introduced to allow users to spice up the look of there inbox, if they so desire.

All you have to do if you want to change the look of your favorite email service is head on over to the settings page, and hit the theme tab, once there you will be presented with a healthy selection of new themes to choose from, ranging from simple colour tweaks to radical background changes. I think I will probably just go for a simple colour change as I like the simplicity of my ever busy inbox.

If you can’t see the option to choose a theme yet, fear not, as Google are rolling out the update to all users over the next few days. Be sure to let me know what theme you choose by leaving a comment.

Goals for 2008

Happy New Year! I hope you all have a great 2008 and achieve all that you aim to. (Also to bring in the new year, a congratulations from Scott at mythermos.com for winning my small holiday entrecard contest.)

Now as for my plans for 2008, these include goals for my blog, my sites and personal aims:

1. Get a custom blog design:

Mainly a goal I hope to achieve far before 2008 is even close to finished, I want to give ChrisBrandrick.com it’s own look and feel. It’s commonly known that using a public free theme (despite their merits) is frowned upon. Having a design unique to me gives my blog an identity, a brand, and recognition. John Cow has ;
