Google is crazy again with it's "circle particles". And I thought Google really learned their lesson with all the Pac Man criticism:(

Arggh! It's really annoying. I'm trying to work and it's really putting me off.

Could this doodle be about Google search event today? Or its birthday?

Hmm that's a cool thing but don't no why?! Search Event is tomorrow. Google Germany tweets: "Unser Logo freut sich heute schon auf etwas wirklich Spannendes später in dieser Woche..."

But if it's about the birtyday why isn't it global?

I think they use peoples curiosity to make them use html5 browser in the future. I like the particles...

For those trying to work, the https version of Google Search has always avoided these gimmicks (so far...):

"Google told me "today's doodle is not related to a birthday but is fast, fun and interactive, just the way we think search should be."

Got the same statement via email from Google in Dutch. I expect Google will mention this tomorrow at the event. I also expect that Google will mention / introduce streaming search.

It didn't last too long. Back to the standard logo now. Strange that there was no explanation about it for typical users who were likely confused by it.

I always enjoy their logos and experimentation with them regardless of how distracting they are to some people.

"And I thought Google really learned their lesson with all the Pac Man criticism:("

The Pac Man logo had two problems that this one didn't, unsolicited sound and keyboard shortcuts that could override the users ability to type those letters in the search box.

I liked the Pac-Man logo, though. If you have to do serious work, you can search Google quite easily in any modern browser without going to google.com

Instead of it just being a fixed grey....if you start typing in the search box, each letter of the logo turns to its respective colors.

Streaming search it is, Eric Schmidt tweets "I predict big things happening today at Google. We're already fast.. fast is about to get faster."
