Here's what "Google" actually sounds like when sent using Morse Code (mp3 file):

<< Every time someone plays Beethoven’s Fifth, it starts with the Morse code for “V”. >>

Roger, that's a great little fact that I've never realised before!

On a related note, the default text message tone used by many Nokia handsets is morse code for "SMS".

[Edit: Sorry, I guess I should have read your whole article properly first... I see you mentioned that one too!]

That's why those notes were used in the UK during World War 2 to introduce news and propaganda broadcasts, even though Beethoven was German: "V for Victory".

There are many readers not familiar with morse code, the picture doesn't say "morse" :)

Who said it says "Morse"? I think everyone knows it says "Google". Don't they?

Is there any relevance to the different level of the letter Gs and letter E in the doodle or is that just a bit of artistic license?

That Nokia default text message tone fact is very well known here in "Nokialand" :)

[put at-character here]Tony: Yes, maybe not so many are expecting to see "Morse"... they see "Google"
