Just depends on how you look at it.

as far as I'm concerned.

If you received it from left to right it would be Google.

As an ex-G4 I can confirm it does indeed spell google.

But I admit it could be better laid out.

Not sure if there should have been a full stop ie -... - end of my message .- .-.

It does read Google in morse but they have alternated the height of each letter (possibly to catch out the unwary). click here is a morse code translator.

No, because its a representation of the logo, and that doesnt have a full stop.

But I do like their creativity in constantly changing the artwork on their title page, often reflecting something current. What this could signify though is beyond me. Is it some kind of anniversary of morse, perhaps?

Our successors in the military have it easy on comms these days with encripted voice. I remember taking ages to encript 5 figure groups in One time pads and pedalling a man pack generator strapped to a tree. Is it the (bi?) centenary of the inventor of morse?

Samuel Morse's birthday.
