World Cup 2014 Google Logo Day 2 Mirrors Opening Ceremony With Dancing Trees & Drum
Today’s Google logo continues the FIFA 2014 World Cup celebrations with a dancing tree and drum-playing letter “e” to mimic Brazil’s World Cup opening ceremony.

For fans who may want to wager on the games (not that Search Engine Land is promoting illegal gambling), Bing has applied its predictions technology to forecast World Cup winners.
Using an algorithm that based on team records, home field advantages, weather conditions, and win-loss probabilities, Bing displays which World Cup teams it predicts will win when users search “World Cup predictions” along with the group division.
