Today, Google is paying tribute to the late guitar pioneer Les Paul with a guitar-themed doodle that allows users to play it and record songs of their own.
The doodle, which was designed by engineers Kristopher Hom and Joey Hurst and doodle team lead Ryan Germick, will be up for 24 hours, and was released to celebrate what would have been Paul's 96th birthday. (Paul, a leader in the development of the solid-body electric guitar, died of complications from pneumonia in 2009.)
A giant McDonald's video billboard in Stockholm, Sweden is hosting a game of pong that just about anybody with a smart phone can join in, without having to download any new software.
Instead, potential players use their smart phone to log on to a website associated with the promotion. After the phone's geo-location device confirms you are close enough to the billboard, the phone's touch screen can be used to control the game.
Singer-songwriter Andrew Gold, whose song 'Thank You For Being a Friend' was made popular by the Emmy-winning comedy 'The Golden Girls,' died Friday in his sleep from a heart attack, PEOPLE has confirmed. He was 59.
Gold, who worked with artists ranging from Cher to Art Garfunkel during his career, set out as a solo artist in 1975 following a stint with the band Bryndle. In 1977, he released arguably his best-known song, 'Lonely Boy,' which peaked at number seven on the U.S. charts.
