Google Doodle Zipper – Tribute to Gideon Sundback

By  |  2 Comments

I just have seen Google homepage and I was amazed by the zipper there. If you click or drag the zipper it will open a page that is a search query of Gideon Sundback.

Before going into details about the search query, the effect that Google pulled on their doodle today really is inspiring. I really enjoyed it and twitter is full of appreciation tweets as well.

Coming back to Gideon Sundback, he was born on 24th of April 1880. Gideon is the man who invented the Zipper. He invented the Zipper in December 1913.

Sundback was a Swedish American Electical Engineer.

Today Google have changed its homepage to pay tribute to a great inventor.

You can find more details about Mr. Gideon Sundback on Wikipedia.

    I have used OSCommerce and Magento Commerce (preferable). This time I am trying to create a public store (products viewable by everyone – I know how to do that) as well as an area where select few customers can login and it will show them products that are only for them. Hence a personal e-commerce store for specific customers.

    Does anyone know if Magento supports that? If not, any other software package that will allow that?
