Logo Recognition Quiz

This quiz shows variants of popular logos and times how long it takes you to pick out the real ones (via Boing Boing). I found it surprisingly difficult. I remember that Amazon’s curved arrow is below the text, but I didn’t remember which letters it connected. I remember Google’s colors, and that the G is blue and the repeating O is yellow, but not which O repeats or which other colors went with which letters.

Desktop Icon Screenshots

Erik Barzeski:

I didn’t know that desktop icons could be captured with the spacebar trick after hitting cmd-shift-4. They’re not only captured, they’re captured with full transparency.

I didn’t know that, either.
