When I logged in to Google on 19th Jan 2013, I saw a different Google logo. And it was a Birthday doodle. Now, I thought some big personality who invented, lets say - air or water or nuclear energy or the likes, was being remembered on his / her birthday. Since it was a Saturday and I had lots of time at my disposal, I decided to check out who's birthday was it. And this is what I found. Check the message on the doodle -
Thank you Google! What a nice gesture and a nice way to start surfing the net on my birthday!
In case you are wondering how it works: I have shared my birthday details on my Google+ page. Here's the pseudocode:
If Login = "Binu Thomas",
If Current date = Profile Birthdate,
Show "Birthday Doodle"
Show the doodle for the day
And, needless to say, this is a doodle only you can see when you logon to Google on your birthday. Watch out for your birthday!
