Are we giving too much attention to Google?

It made news when Google ‘forgot’ to change its logo to give a wink to Canucks on the Canada Day. Although the internet giant has a history of recognizing the Canada Day in the past (except for 2003) July 1st of 2008 brought a bit of hollowness for the Canadians when the same old primary-coloured letters appeared on the Google website. Here is the history and corresponding logos:

  • 2007 – the L in Google was transformed into an image of the Peace Tower, complete with fireworks.
  • 2006 – there was a Canadian flag
  • 2005, a simple Maple Leaf did duty as the first O (although Google’s list of holiday logos for that year lists Canada Day as July 2.)
  • 2004, the second G was a loon and its reflection with a Canadian flag hanging off the L.
  • 2003, forgot the Canadians
  • 2002, a moose lurked behind the word Google with a Canadian flag again suspended from the L.
  • 2001, the first year the company marked the holiday, there was a beaver, a Canadian flag and even text saying: “Happy Canada Day.”

Do you really care if Google forgets or recognizes the Canada Day!
