summery

Google Spain logo 21st June 2010

As I’ve said before, not only do Google adapt their logo according to the date, but they do so according to location, too. I find it strange, though, that June 21st should warrant a special logo only on the google.es page – celebrating el inicio del verano – and not on the .com or .co.uk versions. After all, surely summer starts on the same day?

(That’s not actually true every year, as the suite101 page about the June solstice explains. But it is the case in 2010.)

Since I’ve used the title ‘summery’, perhaps I should keep this post brief and only mention in passing the oddity of the screen shot with google.es apparently offered in español – català – galego – euskera but with the buttons defaulting to English in my browser.
