I was lucky enough to catch it on Google U.K. — which is, of course, 5 hours ahead of us (Eastern). Cute.
Kind of in the theme of last year’s extremely clever ‘scratch Google Doodle‘. Just like the scratch it will not be obvious — hence the catch.
That it says ‘Goggle‘ rather than ‘Google‘ will be missed by many (who will read it, thanks to our brains amazing compensatory powers as the right word) — though it is also a HUGE plug for Google Goggles.
From what I can see, and what I can gather, this Google Doodle will not appear on your screen each and every time. It appears that it will ONLY appear when the IP address you are using is deemed by a Google algorithm to be non-prime, random not divisible by 2014. Cute. So if you are on a mobile try different Wi-Fi hotspots because they will each have a different IP. If you use DHCP logoff — and logon to get a different IP. Like I said I lucked out and captured it as soon as I saw it.
All the best. Enjoy. I am sure Google has other tricks up his very long reaching arm.
Happy April 1, 2014.
