This is one is for the eagle-eyed among you.

Google quietly - very quietly - changed its logo this weekend. I bet you never noticed, and I bet you can barely see it even when it's animated for you:

Google changed the kerning - or spacing - between a couple of letters, and moved one letter down and over. By one pixel. Each.

A pixel is the smallest possible image unit on a computer. The period at the end of this sentence - depending on your computer settings - is probably just a pixel.

Why do it?  The letters were just a bit off, and according to experts, if the spacing is off just a little, it can leave a logo looking unfinished or unbalanced.

Did you notice something wrong with Google's logo before? Does it look better now? Does it even matter? Tell me what you think below!
