Slate's Matthew Yglesias Bings-it-On on Easter Sunday, taking note of Google's decision to commemorate Easter as the birthday of Latino labor leader Cesar Chavez in today's Google Doodle, while Microsoft's Bing went with an Easter-themed secular graphic of Easter eggs for its home page (side-by-side comparison). 'The doodles are, obviously, not significant in and of themselves,' Yglesias writes. 'But Google's ability to indulge the whims of its staff rather than cater to mass opinion on them is a highly visible signpost of its extremely strong market position. The same phenomenon is why it can plow search-related operating surpluses into speculative ventures from Android to Glass to self-driving cars.'
