Google Doodles - 0 views

  •  
    Just thought I would add this page about controversial Google doodles! Its interesting which ones were viewed as controversial.
  •  
    Good one, Adam. I meant to ask Laura and forgot whether the doodles are always the same in every country, and this gallery shows that they aren't. Which makes a lot of sense. The Miró one is interesting, too -- the fact that the artist's heirs felt ripped off, even though it was original artwork in the *style* of Miró rather than anything actually copied from a digital version of Miró.

    This is an archive of google news stories. You can search for specific news events or dates and find the articles written and shared on google. I thought this was an interesting find with archives since it combined google news stories with archives we learned about today in class.

Google has a database of magazines - 1 views

  •  
    You can use Google to search for magazines and magazine articles that date all the way back to the 1960's.
  •  
    Hey, that's super-useful, Talia, thanks! When Google scanned things from research libraries, that included a lot of magazines. Or maybe Google made deals with the publishers directly for these. There are some weird titles in there, though -- no Time, no Newsweek, but you can search through _Torque_, "Singapore's best homegrown car magazine" :)
