I'm quite amused by the latest Google logo. It's a short video featuring Charlie Chaplin. :lol:
(Obviously, it's not really Charlie Chaplin but a modern remake, since it includes the Google logo.)
Edit: Sorry, typos.

Just watched and downloaded it.  Funny.  I've seen some silent comedies and it was done just like one of them was.  

Thanks for posting this, otherwise I would have not known about the new Google logo since I use Blackle, a search engine I think done by google with an all black background.  I use it since I find white backgrounds a bit painful to look at, and to bright.

There is a link to youtube in the lower right corner of the video if you want to watch it in a larger format.

Today's Google logo seems quite interesting. I think it's some kind of guitar that you can play and even make your own recordings. I find it a little fun, but made no recordings since I consider myself terrible at playing an instrument.

Man, the person behind that image MUST be good at what he/she does. :)

I'm rather impressed.

Today's Google logo looks interesting. It's basically a wavelength that somewhat resembles the word Google. For example, the "G" part is a large blue arc, and the "l" part is a narrow and tall arc that's colored green.

Interesting to see.  Thanks for the information.  Since I use blackle as my search engine I dont' usually see the Google logo since their all white page is a little painful to my eyes.

Several times people have reported trouble with this particular Google Doodle. this article has some useful links, though in particular I'm annoyed by the article's tone and lack of extra information other than "here's a list of browsers that sometimes don't work." Click through links to get real useful information.

Google have made this cool Google logo for Robert Moog. Who was the inventor of the Moog synthesizer. You get to play the synthesizer and record you're own music. Have fun out there. :DD

RIP Robert Moog.

Google turns 14 today and to celebrate, they changed their logo.

Take a good look at how the cake disappears.  It's actually pretty neat. :)

The Google Doodle today is The Zamboni game, created for Frank Zamboni's birthday.

So that's what it was! I was wondering when I saw this, what the game was based on :p

I really like today's interactive Google Doodle. For the anniversary of the first parachute jump, in this game you guide the parachutist left or right on where to land. There are all kinds of places to land: in a city, in an empty field, on the water, in a boat, up in a tree, on an iceberg with penguins, even on the back of an elephant. :lol  Yeah, I've pretty much spent the past hour trying out all kinds of possibilities. (Where you start is always random, so it's never the same twice in a row.)

Dr. Who fans will love today's Google logo. I've played through that game three times now. My best time was just over three minutes. :D
