    Anyone else opened up google and seen the logo and thought something is wrong with your computer or the website? Took me awhile to figure out what that was. :)

    For some reason I can't feel anything... I've been running my hand over it all morning and I can't read it. I dunno. Maybe my monitor is bad?

    I'm sure a bunch of people will think something is wrong with their computer. I'm waiting for my non technical mother to call me for support.... I can hear it now “something is wrong with Goggle, do I have a virus”
