Accepted answer: no
One of the more annoying aspects of the default WordPress install is that the login page is plastered with a large WordPress logo that links to WordPress.org.
Unless your visitors are somewhat blog savvy, most probably have no idea what “WordPress” is. They thought they were on Big Bob’s Blog, and now they’re seeing a logo for something called WordPress. Even worse, when they click it, it even takes them to a place called WordPress. What the …? Where is Big Bob?
Not to worry. There are a number of simple plugins that will take care of this problem for you.
There are some fairly complex plugins that I’ve seen that will change nearly everything about your Admin areas, including the logo on the login page, but many people just need a simple solution to do this one simple thing.
Below are three plugins that will get the job done for you, changing the WordPress logo for your logo.
1. Uber Login Logo (DOWNLOAD HERE)
The first option, the “Uber Login Logo” is so simple, it should be called the “Uber Simple Login Logo.” It’s so simple, in fact, it doesn’t even have a “Save” button on the Settings page. Just upload your logo and it’s done. It automatically links your logo to your home page, so you don’t even have to worry about that. You’ll probably spend more time looking for options and buttons that aren’t there than you will actually getting your login page changed.
2. Customize Admin (DOWNLOAD HERE)
The second option is slightly more sophisticated than the first, but not by much. It has a spot to upload your image, and a place to insert a URL for where you’d like the image to link to. There are a few other options on the page, but if you’re just looking to change the login logo, then the first two are all you will need to worry about.
3. Admin Customization (DOWNLOAD HERE)
The final plugin has the most options. It will let you change other elements such as the backend favicon, the dashboard widgets, update notices, and the admin footer text. This plugin still remains relatively simple, even with the added options. If you’re looking to change a little more than your login page without worrying about reconfiguring everything, you might check this one out.
A Simple Fix
Changing your login page logo is a simple fix that can eliminate a lot of confusion on behalf of your visitors. We know WordPress needs the love, but sucking away unsuspecting surfers into a world they don’t understand and don’t want to understand is not the way to go about it.
Reverse WP’s bad decision with one of these plugins.
Last April, we announced our plans for Google Cloud Print (GCP), the service that powers printing on Chromebooks as well as a new generation of connected apps and devices. The goal of GCP is to enable simple, secure printing from any app on any device to any printer—and with the latest cloud-ready printers, you can also print without using drivers or cables.
Since launching earlier this year, we’ve seen a surge of enthusiasm from users and developers. More than 6 million printers have already been connected to GCP using Google Chrome; dozens of cloud-ready printers have been released or announced by manufacturers like Epson, HP and Kodak; and the developer community has released a flurry of apps and extensions to enable cloud printing from both Android and iOS.
While developers and printer manufacturers have embraced GCP, we've also released a variety of improvements to the service. You can now share and control access to your printers so your friends and family can use them too. With “Save to Google Docs,” it’s easy to save your online receipts and confirmation pages to an archive in the cloud. The management page has a new tablet-friendly design and a “Print” button so you can upload and print files to your cloud printers from anywhere.
Finally, webmasters can add the print button element to their site to enable printing functionality for tablets and mobile phones.
People with Chromebooks have always had access to the latest and greatest Google Cloud Print features, but today, we’ve reached a new milestone: starting with the latest release of Chrome, anyone using the browser on Windows, Mac and Linux will be able to print any webpage to Google Cloud Print. We’ve also turned on print preview for Chromebooks, so you’ll get the same familiar experience wherever you use Chrome.
In the coming months, we’ll enable GCP from more Google products and work with partners to add more printers and printing services. Happy printing!

I've recently been playing with the Gamepad API and implementing it in Rawkets (gamepad stuff isn't online yet, sorry!). Up until a few days ago this was a Firefox-only feature but I'm glad to say that builds of Chrome are now out with gamepad support. Here is a quick video of Rawkets with the Gamepad API working in Firefox and Chrome.
I'm looking forward to this functionality maturing and getting supported by the other browsers. For now you can play with this today in experimental Nightly builds of Firefox or download the Chrome Dev build for Windows support, or Chrome Canary for Mac support (Linux coming soon).
