Second: You misunderstand the grandparent. If you don't understand the basic ideas behind a crypto algorithm (or, more importantly, crypto protocols) then you will pick the wrong one. No matter how good a cypher is, or how verified the implementation is, if used incorrectly it will still be insecure.
Serif fonts work fine on small devices, they don't work well at low DPI. Which, in an age of 200+DPI on cheap devices, means that this move makes little sense. The only reason that the scaling is a problem would be if they're doing something stupid, like using a bitmap image rather than a vector. And, of course, a quick trip to google.com confirms that they are, indeed, using a png rather than an svg (with png fallback if they care that much) for their logo.
So, the real story here is that, in 2015, web giant Google has yet to learn that resolution-independent images are a thing.
At the other end of the design spectrum, Cavium's Thunder X has 48 ARMv8 cores (not hyperthreads) per die, and supports dual-socket configurations for up to 96 processors per board. Individually the cores are weaker than a Xeon, but on some workloads (network routing, some database serving), they're pretty impressive in aggregate. That many physical cores also makes it easier to load balance VMs in a hosted environment. This is especially good for the kind of workload where most clients are idle for a lot of the time, but when they're busy they're very busy.
