Microsoft has updated its corporate logo after using it for 25 years. The new logo has two components: the logotype and the symbol. For the logotype, Microsoft uses the Segoe font, which is the same font it uses in its products as well as its marketing communications. The symbol’s squares of color are intended to express the company’s diverse portfolio of products.

Google Intros Handwrite Search

Google has announced a new search feature for smartphones and tablets. Dubbed Handwrite, the feature allows you to make searches from Google.com using your fingers rather than typing the words on the keyboard. As you write, your handwritten text converts into words in the search box.

To enable Handwrite, visit www.google.com on your smartphone or tablet, click “Settings,” found at the bottom of the page, and then enable Handwrite.

Once the feature is enabled, tap the Handwrite icon on the bottom right corner of your screen to activate the writing surface. Write a few letters and you’ll see autocomplete options appear below the search box. If one of the options is what you’re looking for, just tap it to search. For longer queries, you can continue writing and use the arrows next to the autocompletions to move the right one into the search box. Since you can write anywhere, you don’t have to look back and forth repeatedly from the keyboard to the search box.

This feature is currently available in 27 languages.
