    Default Google Jamaica Logos

    OK, so based on your IP address Google will serve up to you a search home page based on Location.. So from Jamaica we get Google Jamaica. http://www.google.com.jm/

    Is it too much to ask that the Google logo represent our holidays ?? and Holidays for all the other countries they have dedicated search pages for ??

    You make a very good point you know and that would be an easy task for google.

    That could also see the widening of their logo competition from just the US to worldwide.

    Because the rest of the world does not revolve around the US. It is nice that all the big US holidays have their own logos, but if Google is going to make a profit from the people of other nations at least show some respect.

    For an organization such as Google, manipulating the locale should be simple enough.

    I personally dont care what Google does, but I can see GPRS's point.

    Thumbs up good thought

    I agree -- they should show some respect too and we can make them do the right thing, which is sincerely missing from businesses these days, if we gang up on them.. I mean unite.

    For realio -- now I am for it, who else got national/country pride?

    I agree, if they do it for other countries then they should do the same for all.
