Google have created a gnarly animation for the New Year which you can access by clicking on the ‘I’m feeling lucky’ search button from the Google home page. This worked for me today on the Australian version (.com.au) Check it out and let me know what you think and if you’ve seen this before.
You might be wondering how it is that I found this, and the story is relatively innocuous. I was testing a new broadband connection we got from Telstra, the Sierra 21 USB modem. It has a theoretical maximum speed of 21Mbps downstream bandwidth, which is pretty cool. Anyway, I was told that it would work on Snow Leopard Mac OS v10.6.2 but oh no… after about an hour on the phone with Telstra they decide it is broken and will send a new one. Anyway it was when this new one arrived and I finally got to work inside my XP virtual machine that I was testing Google.com -> they sent me to .com.au and because it finally worked, well… I *was* feeling lucky.
