Wael Ghonim, as quoted in Doodle your Logo like Google!

Today’s WhatIs.com Word of the Day is X dimension. It’s a term used in barcode technology. Google is celebrating the anniversary of this technology by changing its logo to a barcode today.

If you have a few minutes to spare, take an interesting tour at Google’s museum of Google Doodles. Many of them are location-specific.  Don’t you wish we had a holiday called “Moon Viewing Day” too?
