Rogue Google Doodle? Oscar Wilde Google Doodle In U.K. Not U.S.

October 16, 2010

Today is the 156th anniversary of the birth of Irish writer Oscar Wilde.

Google are celebrating this event by featuring a Google doodle image of Dorian Gray on their homepage in the U.K. but not the U.S.

While there is nothing unusual about Google substituting a doodle for the Google logo, this is the first time I can recall seeing a non U.S. Google property feature a doodle that wasn’t also featured on Google.com.

Soon will every Google property worldwide be able to run its own Google Doodles like Google.co.uk has done today?

What if any consequences are there for the Google brand?



Gootter.com Real Time Question and Answer Q&A Engine

March 30, 2009

Thinking out loud…

Innovation by definition isn’t incremental so why write about incremental improvements?

I am also getting bored with the perpetual stream of incremental improvements that come from every imaginable corner of the world of technology.

So some extemporaneous thinking here:

Gootter.com would be the name of the merged services from Google.com and Twitter.com.

Twitter is an answer engine looking for the right questions.

Google is a question engine that already has the right answers.

Gootter.com will answer your questions before you ask them.
