A very happy fourth of July to all our American readers! There are some very creative logos from the search engines today.
Google has a double logo, doodle, one for July 4th and it dupes as a happy birthday logo for Rube Goldberg. Rube Goldberg, as per Wikipedia, was a "Jewish American cartoonist, sculptor, author, engineer, and inventor. Goldberg is best known for a series of popular cartoons he created depicting complex devices that perform simple tasks in indirect, convoluted ways – now known as Rube Goldberg machines." So Google put together a doodle that showed off a July 4th theme, as Rube Goldberg would have.
Here is a video of the Google Doodle:
After you click one more time on the logo you will get a search result at Google for [4th of July].
