Everyone else seeing favicons next to text ads now? Trying to determine if they have anything to do with lower CTR the past few days.

I just saw a variation on the favicon ads that I hadn't seen previously:

In a 300 x 250 block on my site, the first three text ads are standard text ads with the little favicons and arrows, but the fourth ad has a great big icon (about half an inch square on my high-resolution display, or maybe eight times the size of a favicon) with no arrow. The icon is to the left of the headline, URL line, and text.

Gone from my site, too. Maybe they've had second thoughts, or maybe they're waiting to release the monster versions.
