    noticed that google image search has now removed "view image"
    (and also apparently "search by image") because

    Google's deal this month with stock-photo agency Getty to end their legal spat
    carries one very noticeable provision: the "View image" button will be removed
    from Google Images search results.
    The photo biz complained that photographs shown in the advertising goliath's search
    results were unfairly offered in full high-res formats, as opposed to small thumbnails,
    and that the snaps could be easily saved via the "View image" button and ripped off
    without any attribution or royalty payments. This in turn slashed traffic to Getty's
    websites and subsequent sales, it was claimed.
    from
    Code:

    edit: seems to have gone back to normal now.

    Ode to a Smashed Donut

    Indulging in sweetness I was

    Looking forward to maple-iced goodness

    Unaware the sound I heard in my trunk

    Twas the sound of the demise of my snackness

    Amazing how weight of 1 gallon milk

    Can make donut become sadness.









    *not my best work but I'm on low sugar here....

    were you able to salvage your donut, ideally via some Frankensteinian,
    jacob's ladder-adorned kitchen shenanigans?

    I did mount a search and rescue operation but the remains were largely unrecoverable. Mushed right into the bag he was.

    He was a good donut, we barely knew him.
