I must be stupid...

Postby Bazza » Thu Aug 12, 2010 6:46 pm

Well I`ve just discovered that the "Google" picture that
changes regularly is a pointer to what is relevant in that
picture...

Today`s is, (if this is the correct grammar), "The Wizard
Of Oz"...

If you double click on the image it will send you straight
to a search of the same name! :O

I know, I am an idiot for not noticing this before... :/

Well you said it, mate. :D

You're no idiot. It's amazing how easy it is to completely miss something like this, especially if you are looking at it each and every day. It becomes so familiar that you never give it a second thought.

Or if you never look at it because you never go to the Google home page.

It's been happening for longer than that - the original "Google Doodle" was in 1999 for the Burning Man Festival. The history of Google Doodles is available here and you can access all Google Doodles here.

Some of us can remember them first hand :wink: :lol:
