Google Bar Code LogoIf you visit the Google home page today, you may see Google's logo has been taken over by a bunch of stripes. Those stripes are actually a bar code, and when you convert the bar code to english, guess what it means? You got it! It means Google.

Here is a picture of it:

There is a lot of discussion and questions around this logo. We have threads at WebmasterWorld, DigitalPoint Forums, a few at Google Web Search Help, and Google Webmaster Help.

Here are some of my favorite comments from the thread on the logo:

Folks really disliking it:

i don’t like barcode sign today ! i don’t feel Google any more wit this signature ...please change it and use shiny colourful Google :)

It is a bug!

My Google Icon has turned into a BAR CODE for some unknown reason. What has happened and how to correct.

Out of nowhere today, 7 OCT 09, the Google logo shows up as a barcode on the homepage. Any fixes?

Too funny.

Truth be told, today in 1952, the US Patent Office issued a patent for the bar code. You can see the patent over here.

If you use your barcode scanner available for download on your smartphones you scan most UPC's out there. If you scan this it actually says Google.
