Ok, I'll start off with an update with the news regarding "easter eggs" found in Google doodlez.

Here's a recap:
The Great Google Doodle Triforce Conspiracy

Developers often place hidden messages or images called "Easter eggs" in their works. One interesting find, if you look close enough is the "Triforce" symbol obscurely placed within special Google doodles. The latest one was released last July 10th - "Nikola Tesla"



The pyramid looking icon highlighted on the image could be the artist's representation of his signature or an Easter egg in reference to Nintendo's Classic RPG series "The Legend of Zelda" where the Triforce appeared.

What is the Triforce?
Here's how Wikipedia explains it:
The Triforce (トライフォース, Toraifōsu?) is a triangular sacred relic that represents the essences of the Golden Goddesses. It is made up of three smaller triangles known as the Triforce of Wisdom, Triforce of Power and Triforce of Courage. Each of these embody the essence of their respective goddess, and bestow certain boons on their bearers. In most of its appearances, the Triforce or its pieces manifest as a crest on the hands of their bearers. These crests resonate when near each other, and the Triforce pieces can emerge from their bearers.


An image of the Triforce as depicted in a cutscene in Ocarina of Time.


When united, the Triforce allows one who touches it to make a wish that lasts until they die or the wish is fulfilled.

You can view the rest of the doodles from the original blog entry at blogoscoped

The Update:
Google Removing Triforce From 'Doodle' Logos


Several Triforce logos have also been spotted on many of Google's older doodles. It seems that Google found out about the Easter eggs and has since removed the hidden icon from all of Susie Sahim's doodles.

Who is Susie Sahim?
The suspected culprit behind the google doodle-triforce Easter egg is none other than Google's web illustrator and web designer Susie Sahim.

Susie Sahim's Personal Blog:

If you will check the location of the actual image and examine it, you will see that the Triforce from the Nikola Tesla doodle has been removed.

Going to Susie Sahim's official website you'll also notice that the images has now been updated sans the Triforce symbol.

I can tell Susie's a hardcore Legend of Zelda fan. She even makes her own costumes and joins cosplays!
