check the Google logo today. Holy bouncing balls Batman!

by James Denison / September 7, 2010 12:06 AM PDT

Best guess I've heard yet is it's related to Stephen Hawkin's book release today. Maybe, but I suspect it's some celebration of programming achievement in the past involving random motion.

LINK to stories.

When I see these differing logos I always click them, or hover the mouse over, to see what it is today.

Can't do that with these darn balls, they keep moving! Happy

I even let the cursor sit right on the place for the word till they all quit moving around, thinking a link or explanation box would then pop up. Nothing.

Save the entire page to your hard drive. Then you can get a better look. But there's no Flash or anything like that.

It's changed 'again' today.

Greyed out logo which colors in letter by letter as you type in the search box.

They're playing with us. They are going to take over the world and are just toying with us, showing what they can do. Happy

It could be some kind of plot, to distract us from what we're doing, while "they" ________ .

Well, I'm not quite sure what it is "they" want to do. OMG. You think world take over?? Shocked

What happened??? I just tried to google something. The logo from earlier has changed back to a (boring) "generic" type logo.

I believe this is some sort of sign. A sign telling me to stop playing and focus on something more constructive! Happy

(Thanks, btw. I feel "once removed" )

Odd about the bouncing balls
by Roger NC / September 8, 2010 8:00 AM PDT

I saw it fine in Chrome, but my wife didn't see anything but the standard logo in IE7. She switched to her Firefox browser and the balls bounced.

So what gives?

This article is about a new logo today that doesn't seem to work for me, I only see the usual logo.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
