Google homepage goes a bit Agatha Christie – Poll: do you prefer Christie or the Balls?


Google is like a virtual art installation these days, with increasingly wacky home pages like this murder in the study scenario which celebrates the 120th anniversary of Agatha Christie’s birth. Still, nothing like a bit of fun on the interwebz.

Agatha Christie is a natural fit for Google because her stories are all about private detectives finding things, like the way Google finds things see. Only thing is that Mrs Marple got you one answer, while Google gets you several hundred thousand and rather quicker.

As part of an important survey into human into human behaviour and attitudes, we’d like to ask you whether you prefer the Agatha Christie Google home page this week, or the famous interactive Balls one from last week:
