Mock-up: What if Google Made a Yahoo-like Start Page?
A few weeks ago, when Jeremy Zawodny discovered that Google had ripped off a Yahoo page design, I thought it'd be fun to create a Google start page that looked like Yahoo's. So here it is, just a little fun what-if comp. I'm no designer, so don't yell at me for substituting the wrong fonts and getting the kerning wrong, and blah blah blah.
And yeah, I know Google would never design something like this. But at the least, it gives you an idea of how Google really is a "portal," and how well all its apps fit together into a more work-oriented Yahoo start page.
