    Google Homepage Today

    Google have changed their logo for John Lennons birthday, i thought today i would click on it for a change and to my surprise it started playing a nice flash video with one of his songs playing. After its finished it takes you to the search results for it.

    Brilliant if you ask me!!

    This is what we are getting:


    But no Flash animation and no tunes playing [before or after a search]

    Maybe that's why it will not play. YouTube is blocked here. So if it's linking to youtube that would explain it.

    I can confirm that YouTube is blocked here. That would explain it then.
