I really like Google's image today. It is actually a game on an ice skating rink. It is to commemorate the person who invented the ice resurfacer.

The 14th February 2013 Google Doodle is a combination of George Ferris Birthday and that of Valentine’s day. At first like most of the time when Google Brings out a new Google Doodle, I always try to see if I can discover what the Google Doodle is about, before I read more about it. Today’s Google Doodle had me baffled for a moment.

Google Doodle March 11th, 2013, Douglas Adams' 61st Birthday


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPwyMIiexq4

There is a Google Doodle on March 11th, 2013. It is an interactive Google Doodle for Douglas Adams. It would be his 61st birthday today. Douglas Adams was an English writer, dramatist and humorist. He got famous with his "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". It started as radio comedy before developing into a "trilogy" of five books that sold over 15 million copies. Douglas Adams died of a myocardial infarction at the age of 49.
The Doodle is interactive. By clicking on the handheld right of the cup the story continues.
You'll find out the answer to life the universe and everything is 42.
