background" is a popular search phrase after the Internet search engine added a feature last week that allows users to customize the image that appears on their own Google.com.

Google is also becoming more customizable with "Epic Google" and "Weenie Google." Epic Google stretches the search box, while Weenie shrinks it.

The chatter on Main Street (a.k.a. Google) is always of interest to investors on Wall Street. Thus, each day, TheStreet compiles the stories that are trending on Google, and highlights the news that could make stocks move.
