Google, that big awesome company founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, is the #1 search engine on the planet today. We all know it for its familiar logo, with the text Google in blue-red-orange-blue-green-red colors. The logo is very simple and clean, the same philosophy they applied to their search page which made Google the #1 name is search.
But while simple, clean and classic, it can get boring after a while. Thus, the Google Doodles. Once in a while, to commemorate an event or a holiday, Google doodles on its logo, turning it into various designs depicting the event or holiday being observed.
Today, is Jules Verne's birthday. Thus, when you open www.google.com, you won't see the usual blue-red-orange-blue-green-red Google logo, but rather one that looks like windows of an old submarine that is 20,000 leagues under the sea.
"20,000 Leagues under the Sea", BTW, is one of Jules Verne's famous science-fiction novels, along with A Journey to the Center of the Earth, and Around the World in Eighty Days. All have been turned into movies and cartoons.
Today, Jules Verne is 183 years old.
