Would appear that Google, atypically, appears to be gun shy after all the flack they received about the Cesar Chavez Doodle on Good Friday.

Other than the amazing SCRATCH Doodle they did on April 1, April Fool’s Day, they have stayed away from U.S. Doodles.

But they have been doing Doodles for their overseas markets. I was particularly struck by the April 9, 2013 one, in Hong Kong, for Hung Xun Tao’s 85th birthday. I have never heard of him. Appears he was a famous famous Chinese children’s literature writer and theorist. Also appears that Google, as they have done in the past, got his name wrong! It is supposed to be Hong Xuntao. Look at that Doodle, which I reproduce above. Notice anything unusual? ‘Google’ does appear, somewhat, BUT it is unusually muted and blurred. They never do that?

Wow. We now have controversy about Google Doodles! Who would have thought. [See below.]

And Bing is competing. Though my ISP, TDS, has Bing as the default search if I mistype a URL, I am a dyed in the wool Googler. I just banged my name into Bing when I went to get the background. I was impressed with the results. Maybe I should try it. But, as Deanna always complains I like my routines — but, part of that is the discipline. I have used Google for so long.

I am, as you know, partial to Google Doodles — especially after they gave me the one I requested!

Bing, I guess, has a different background daily — and as with Doodles, some of it is country-specific. Yes, there is an archive (and I will confess, it is better laid out than Google’s).

I don’t think I will have the time to follow both. I am hooked on Doodles.

But …

Read about the controversy related to this Doodle on Easter
and the Bing counter with Easter Egg background!


Mexican American Cesar Chavez [March 31, 1927 – April 23, 1993]
was a farm worker, labor leader and civil rights activist,
who, with Dolores Huerta, co-founded the National Farm Workers Association
(later the United Farm Workers union, UFW).

Nice touch by Google.

Chavez has been getting a lot of press of late.
