Google is celebrating the 57th anniversary of the first patent on the bar code. And any  barcode reader will probably read the above code as Google!

If you take a scanner from any of your local retail buddies who have a scanner you can put it up to the computer next time Google puts the barcode up and then you will see the current value of Google Inc.!

I missed this logo. Sad:
From time to time Google logo changed in honor of holidays celebrated by people around the world. It’s a smart thing!
