Valentine's Day at Google

For Valentine's Day, Google prepared some special logos and design changes. Here's the kitschy Google Docs with custom icons and a prominent "Happy Valentine's Day!" at the top of the page (it reminds me of Slashdot's pink theme for April Fools' Day 2006: OMG!!! Ponies!!!).

Google Docs Pink Theme

There's an interesting doodle on the homepage:

...and YouTube has a commonplace logo:

Over the years, Google changed its logo and even linked to a Java animation. Last year, Gmail removed the invitations and Google surprised everyone with a doodle that seemed to miss a letter.

If you spot something different with Google's sites today, post it in the comments.

{ Thank you, Ilya and Nathan. }

    this just brightens my day too see an old couple still together, it really makes me smile. ITS SOOOOOOOOOOO LOVELY TO SEE, I LOVE IT. lolzi.

  10. Google always one step a head in technology. You can expect anything from Google. They way they are moving I am afraid after some time there will be only one search engine. On every year they come up with new ideas and graphics.

  11. What an amazing company. To think that they tried to sell to yahoo in the beginning!

  12. It's amazing.. but It should have more surprises as I feel. like free calling system to lover.. any kind of message like Christmas season. :)

  13. Google's Valentine's Cartoon sent I.E. for a loop on my PC and finally locked up the whole machine!!! I thought the days of loop errors were over with the Commode 64!! Thank you Microsoft A-holes for showing me that you still can't write a program correctly. And you want me to buy into Windows 8!!!
