If you're of a certain age, then you no doubt remember spending hours staring at that DVD screensaver, forever waiting for the floating logo to finally hit the corner (spoiler alert: it never did). Well, in both the best and worst news of the week, Google has seen fit to resurrect the animation for a blast of nostalgia – and frustration.

Google 'DVD screensaver', wait for a few seconds, and the Google logo itself will start bouncing around the screen, changing colour every time it hits a side. Google's might not be one of the best logos of all time – but it's pretty neat to see it bouncing around like it's 1999.
