OOP’s Google has spelt their name wrong in an embarrasing posting to celebrate HG Wells’ birthday.
The Google brand name appeared with an extra letter “l” on its home page on Sunday, a change that was quickly picked up by hundreds of Internet visitors.

Visitors wrote “why is google spelt wrong” and “why does google have two ls”.
Google was established on HG Wells’ birthday by Larry Page and Sergey Brin 11 years ago this month – in September 1998 – and the company has in the past altered its doodle to celebrate its own anniversaries.
For its tenth birthday last year the first letter “o” in Google was replaced with a cupcake.
Google has always used its logo as a way of commemorating important historical dates and major world events, but has become increasingly playful in recent weeks.
