Google sent an image to 9to5Google that offers a glimpse at the new Gmail logo, which appears to still be under construction. 9to5Google The rounded corners follow Google’s latest design language, according to 9to5Google, which also believes that the final version of the Gmail logo will feature blue, green, red, and yellow, moving away from the current red-and-white scheme. This will make the logo coincide with the icons for the company’s other services such as Google Maps, Google Assistant, and Chrome. The new Gmail logo also apparently drops the envelope design, which makes sense as the service has become so much more than just for…

Although Williams made it all the way to the semifinals this year, her absence in the finals — like Djokovic’s — left room for other rising stars like Naomi Osaka to shine on this year’s cutthroat women’s singles roster. It seems…

Portland Passes a Sweeping Ban on Facial Recognition Tech
