A long time ago now, before he got sucked into Apple (and recently Yahoo it seems) a young man called Dunstan Orchard implemented a banner image in his blog that changed with the weather conditions of where it was taken (a photo of his parents house).

Today I noticed that Google have also implemented this feature as part of one of the themes on the google personalized home page. The theme selector seems to only be on the .com url for the moment but the weather changes with the postcode you enter.

It’s kind of cool, and it’s nice to see google moving forward with the personalized home page, which I think is great, mainly for my links (cross browser) and my Digg top 10.

Check it out and let me know what you think
