No technology company is arguably more responsible for shaping the modern internet, and modern life, than Google. The company that started as a novel search engine now manages eight products with more than 1 billion users each. Many of those people use Google software to search the repository of human knowledge, communicate, perform work, consume media, and maneuver the endlessly vast internet in 2018. On Tuesday, September 4th, Google turned 20 years old, marking one of the most staggeringly influential runs for any corporation in history. As Alphabet, the holding company of which Google is now a subsidiary, steadily rises to join Apple and Amazon in the $1 trillion market valuation territory, we’re reflecting on all the moments in Google’s past that led to its position at the peak of industries as diverse as mapping, self-driving cars, and smartphone operating systems.

Biggest news today? Google finally closed the Motorola deal, so we’re waking up to a day when we should finally decide whether it’s Googorola, Googlerola or Motoogle. (Have your say in the comments below, we like Googorola!) Fact is that Google just spent a massive $12.5 billion mostly because of patents. Along with them, it got a phone and set-top box maker, though, and the way the search giant handles it is what will really prove interesting.Google’s first step after acquiring Motorola Mobility is changing the CEO. Sanjay Jha who proved to be an exceptionally clever manager, selling the huge deal to Google and ending up with a parachute made out of gold, and also making it to the top 5 of best paid CEOs for last year, will be replaced by Google’s Dennis Woodside.

Afraid of hurting another, she searched the test results in Google. Right there at the top was an ad for rehab. “I thought to myself, ‘Oh my God, even Google knows I need … [Read more...] about How disreputable rehabs game Google to profit off patients
