    On September 7th we celebrate the birthday of Google. Ten years ago in 1998 Larry Page and Sergey Brin founded Google Inc. a designation that has now become a synonym for the world's most famous Internet search engine. Initially having only two employees, now Google has nearly 20,000 workers and a $150 billion market value. At the moment Google is still on top of all internet search pages, and without a doubt can be considered an Internet icon, everybody knows about Google even our grandparents. If there's something you can't find, just Google it! Once again, Happy 10th Birthday Google. There're a few sites below that have covered the occasion:

    NYTimes | Wired | BBC | ZDNet

    Exactly why I posted the Umbrella Corporation. I think that is what they are becoming. If anyone is a Resident Evil fan, they will know what I am talking about.

    What an awesome company. Imagine when Google finally turns 100, how the !@#$% would the web look like then? Here's to many more years, Google! :rockout:

    :toast: Google

    Good job on making it 10 years, :toast: to the best search engine I've ever used. I can find about anything I want in any topic, has been an excellent tool for PC OC/Pricing/Tuning stuff, none better!

    I often fail to find stuff in google that I KNOW 100% certain is out there, and sometimes find via other routes, I'd certainly not go and say google is the end-all of searching.

    Also I hate the new suggestion thing in google, taking over my browser's history-of-typing too.
    I just hope that they don't add more stuff to ruin it, the plain page concept is good.

    10 already and you know how they get when they reach puberty :)

    At this pace, expect a UAC out of Google.

    Funny, they deck up the homepage with a custom logo on pretty much every occasion. Nothing special for today?
