    If anyone didn't know it is the Lego company's 50th birthday

    I remember playing with Legos when I was a little kid, I had a lot of containers full of Legos I used to build stuff with all the time.

    I was wondering what that was about; you can't click on the logo to get the information.

    By the way Google is very aggressive in promoting his Brand name... and i think this is what the Google's way promotion by targeting people's values and ethics. Google use to take care of everyone's emotions and cultures.

    What do you say DPians on this comment. :)

    Just put your cursor over the logo. They always put the info in the ALT and TITLE tags

    I think this logo has to do with the way Google empire was built with tiny blocks, one at a time... and now they are multinational company.

    I see... That's the reason why the logo looks like that.. Actually, I miss playing lego. As a child it's one of the first toys I enjoyed playing.

    The company was named Lego in 1934. One of Lego's first toys was a duck on wheels. The first plastic lego bricks were made in 1947. The current style of Lego bricks was created in 1958, 50 years ago, so happy birthday to Lego the brick, not Lego the company.

    I think the Google logo looks awesome today. They have been slacking off a tad with doing cool stuff with their logo lately (except for major holidays), so I hope that we will be seeing more in the future!

    I used to know a really fat kid down the street that was like the Lego god. His mom even let him take over their huge upstairs loft area just for his legos. He always hated what I would build with his legos....
