I had to actually go peek at my google page today. Most of the time I kind of forget to look at the image.

I see they use the flying saucer means of transportation, whereas in the book the Martians were fired out of a giant cannon. Although at least they haven't tried to transplant it to New York, like most Hollywood versions try to.
