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