Google adds colour filter to image search


Google’s always tweaking its products, and the latest tweak is to Image Search. It’s added the option to filter search results by colour – offering you 12 options for which hue you’d like to dominate your results – red, orange, yellow, green, cyan, blue, purple, pink, white, grey, black and brown.

The update is still filtering out to data centres worldwide, but in the meantime you can use the filter manually by typing something along the lines of “” in the URL box. The tech comes from Google’s acquisition of Neven Vision, so expect to see a few more updates like this in the near future.

CelebrityTweet – behind the velvet rope


If you’re an avid Twitterer, and you want to keep up with the comings-and-goings of various celebrities, then you can just follow them. If you’re not, however, and you still want to keep in touch with what famous people spend their time doing, then you might do well to bookmark CelebrityTweet.

It’s a site that aggregates the Twitter accounts of only famous people. Sadly, that doesn’t include me, yet. Present and correct, though, are Wil Wheaton, Barack Obama, Lance Armstrong and Robert Llewellyn. Recent updates include @bobbyllew getting excited about the Tesla, and @lancearmstrong saying how nice Adelaide is.

Useless if you’re already a Twitter user, though. If you are, console yourself by measuring your Twick size. Not kidding. Mine’s a respectable 7″, the same as @techdigest. Top of the table are @techmeme and @cnetnews with massive 20″ twicks. Childish? Yes. Fun? Yes.
