Google turning twelve

Google 12th Bday Doodle

 

It is Google’s 12th birthday today. The Doodle is a simple cake with Google’s name on it and the L substituted by a candle.  Guess it doesn’t want the resources strained more after the “Google Instant” release. While I find it a waste of processing power, I thought people liked it. But found out of late not everybody is in its favor. Anyway considering that Google is a libra it may be a part of the libra vanity 😉 . 

 The Google 10th Bday page was a particularly interesting one. There was also a fake google 12th bday page with balloons and gifts which popped up when users made a spelling mistake and typed goggle instead of google.  Looks like someone wants to make the birthday more meaningful 😛 

Anyway Happy Birthday Google 🙂 

Flintstones 50th Anniversary

 Today’s(30th Sept ) Google Doodle for Flintstone’s 50th Anniversary. Must say I am loving it 😀

Search Quest

I am back may be for the nth time 😛 At the cost of losing my readers though 😦

One of my initials posts(when Bing had just launched) included a poll: Google or Bing (in which very few people participated 😦 ) . But the answer was obvious: It was google all the way. No competition!!!

Today I happened to open Bing after a long time coz I was unable to find something on Google. I always loved the unique collection of background photos on Bing. The square boxes that redirect to some interetsing piece of news was a surprise for me. I loved the feature and the search engine inspite of it being from Microsoft 😛 . And to my joy also found the page I struggled to find on Google. I went ahead and added bing to my favorites bar.

For first use of the new shortcut, I decided to open Bing for my daily dose of news and Google news appears second in the list wheras it appears third in Google!!! Go ahead and bing for the info ( Oh I almost forgot yahoo is also a search engine. Do any of you use Yahoo for searching?)

Google Goggles

First of all, Wish you all a very Happy and fun filled New Year. May all your dreams come true this year. 2010 is hailed as the year of hope 🙂

And today it happens to be Isaac Newtons birthday. Today’s Google Doodle shows an apple actually falling from an apple tree in an animated doodle.

In one of my previous posts I had commented how nice it would be to have an image search With the current pace of innovation it wasn’t too far and such a feature has been brought out by none other than Search Giant Google called Google Goggles (Youtube video). But right now it is only available for mobile phones running Android 1.6+. Lets hope very soon we can see one for web as well…After all we have just bid adieu to a decade of innovation…
