Millions of users and surfers around the world today, opening Google with the desire to find the information they want, find themselves in front of a smiling cake instead of the traditional search engine logo. It is the doodle that the Mountain View group has created to celebrate their birthday, 23 years of activity.
Every day, “there are billions of Google searches in more than 150 languages worldwide” and “from its first server housed in a closet built with toy blocks” today its servers are “hosted in more than 20 data centers Worldwide.”

The site also recalls the beginnings of Google, when a chance encounter between two computer scientists, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, led to the first prototype of the search engine, born in the dormitories of Stanford University

Is September 27 Really Google’s Birthday?
Why did the Californian company decide on September 27, despite the fact that the foundation formally dates back to September 4, 1998 (and the registration of the domain on September 15)?
The reason can be summarised thus:
Today’s date was chosen at the beginning of the new millennium, more precisely in 2002, as the day to celebrate the anniversary since it corresponds to the one in which, 23 years ago, the search engine announced that it had registered the record of indexed pages in its database.
Below is the first Google layout, at the beginning, when the only tool available to navigate was a computer browser and smartphones would not appeare for at least another decade.
The good old days of 56k modems, when an ISDN line was for many only a distant mirage and ADSL a utopia. Another era.
As is well known, today the activity of bigG extends far beyond the boundaries of online research, ranging from streaming to artificial intelligence, from medical research to experimentation in the field of robotics, to even the operating system in your palms, just to name a few.
The business is now organized as part of the parent company Alphabet, a giant capable of grinding nearly $62 billion in revenue in a single quarter, from which founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin took leave a couple of years ago.__________________________________________________________________________ >COPYRIGHT WARNING!!
