Google’s Unexplained Phenomenon: Tip To Old Video Game?

Google has been playing games with its logo and Twitter over the weekend. First came the UFO logo beaming up the second O in the Google home page (as shown below). Second came the string of numbers in Google’s Twitter post.

The number string: 1.12.12 25.15.21.18 15 1.18.5 2.5.12.15.14.7 20.15 21.19 – translates when assigning letters to the numbers in a straight code you get: All your O belong to us. Perhaps a nod to Zero Wing -a computer game that was big 20 years – replacing O for zero.

Was it a test of Twitter’s power to refer traffic to Google for even an oblique message? Or could it have been an oblique accounting reference – “Zero-base budgeting does not use the previous year’s budget or expenses in setting a new budget, since the company’s circumstances and finances may have changed”.

Obviously that last one is a stretch, but if you leave cryptic messages there will always be speculation.
