Top 10 Amazing And Interesting Facts About Google: Today I’m going to tell you about some amazing and interesting facts about the Search giant Google. As we all know Google was founded in 1998 by two Ph.D. students Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
Well, This is the basic fact about Google that everyone knows. I will tell you some amazing facts, so let’s start it.
1. The Name
Co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin originally named Google ‘Backrub’.
The name ‘Google’ is actually derived from the mathematical term ‘googol’ which is basically 1 with a 100 zeros following it.
2. Google Acquired
Since 2010, Google has been acquiring an average of one company every week.
Android, Youtube, Waze, etc. You name it, Google owns it.
There are more than 1000 doodles created by the team called doodlers in Google.They are talented illustrators who work hard to bring smiles on faces of people who visit the homepage.
Google made its first Google Doodle in the year 1999.
Larry Page created a computerized version of the Google letters using the free graphics program GIMP. The typeface was changed and an exclamation mark was added mimicking the Yahoo! logo.
On September 1, 2015, Google introduced a controversial “new logo and identity family” designed to work across multiple devices. The notable difference in the logo is the change in the typeface. The colors remained the same; however, Google switched to a modern, geometric sans-serif typeface called Product Sans, created in-house at Google
5. Google Hardware and OS
In 2007 Google started planning to release its own mobile phone, as a competitor to Apple’s iPhone. This project is called Android, which is an operating system for mobiles.
Google released it first android phone on January 5,2010, with the name Nexus One. Recently Google launched Pixel 2 Smartphone, Pixelbook, Google Home, etc.
Google wanted to sell itself to online company Excite in 1999 for $1 million, but the Excite CEO rejected the offer.
