Hap­py Birth­day” from Google

In case you haven’t noticed yet:

In case you use a Brows­er which “is reg­is­tered with Google” (cook­ie, Chrome sync, Hang­outs plu­g­in …) in a way that Google knows who you are when you enter the search page, and you have your birth­day entered in this account, then Google presents you a “Hap­py Birth­day” Google-Doodle on that day. If you are not on Google+ and you klick on the pic­ture, you get a page which offers you to upgrade to Goolge+.

Fun­ny/scary? Up to you. For me it just visu­alis­es what I knew already (you can do a lot with per­son­al info, and Google get’s a lot of this) and I say “Thank you Google” (but I don’t upgrade to Google+).
