A refreshing waft of “outdoors” indoors

Today, the day before thanksgiving, is a typical November day in San Francisco – cloudy and rainy. I opened my gmail account and saw some drops on the screen that appeared almost real. I actually tried to wipe the screen off. Here are some screen shots – not very good but adequate. Click on the image below and see the almost real and life-like droplet on the word “Unstarred” or the one on the word “Oldest”!!!

This is the “Tree” theme of gmail in action. Recently, as many of you may have noticed, Google introduced “Themes” to gmail so users can personalize the look and feel of their email client. More out of curiosity than anything else, I started playing with the various themes. I chose “Tree”  and I was surprised when it asked for the city I was in. I typed San Francisco. The theme reflects the weather outside so you can get a refreshing waft of “outdoors” indoors.
