[News] Google Turns 21! Tech Giant Celebrates its Birthday With a Nostalgic Doodle of It's Search Engine On

Hello Mi Fans.
Google, the most popular search engine of all time, and the one that's grown to be a kingdom on the web in its own right, is now of legal drinking age in many parts of the world. As of 27 September 2019, Google is 21 years old! Google has commemorated the day with a doodle with a caricature of a vintage computer and a Google browser window on it.

Google was founded in the dorm rooms of Stanford University in September 1998 by two PhD students, Larry Page, and Sergey Brin. September that year was a busy month for the two of them because while the company now recognises 27 September 1998 as its founding day, Google was given its name and became an incorporated company on 7 September.

Google was named by founders Larry and Sergey after its origin word 'googol', a mathematical term that translates to '10 raised to the power of 100'. They published a paper about launching a prototype of what could be a "large-scale search engine," stating this:

We chose our systems name, Google, because it is a common spelling of googol and fits well with our goal of building very large-scale search engines.


In 2001, Google was granted a Patent for its technology and Page was listed as its investor. After this, the company went public. Over the years, Google released products like Google Docs, Gmail, Google Drive and one of the most-popular web browsers named Google Chrome.
In the coming years, Google acquired video streaming platform YouTube and forayed in the smartphone (Pixel), smart speaker (Google Home) and mobile computer hardware sectors.
Corporate restructuring came along in 2015 which made Alphabet Inc Google's parent company. Together, the two are one of the world's largest conglomerates.
As of this year, Google's estimated net worth is around $300 billion and its parent company is worth approximately $900 billion. Together, the two are worth over Amazon and Apple.
With over 60,000 employees in 50 countries, Google makes and contributes to hundreds of products that are used by billions globally.
Well, you've done that and a whole lot more, Google. Happy 21st birthday!
