Google celebrates a decade in business

Published: September 5th, 2008

Search engine mogul Google Inc. will celebrate its tenth anniversary on Sunday Sept. 7. Ten years since its inception, the popular use of ‘Google’ as a verb is testament to the fact that the company has established a presence in people’s everyday lives.

But the Mountain View, Calif.-based company, started by two Stanford Ph.D students as a research project in a garage, has since branched out from its search engine roots to other areas like e-mail, office productivity, online mapping, and video sharing. And no doubt there will be more in Google’s pipeline of offerings…

For the meantime, though, stay tuned for a special celebratory Google logo when you head to the search engine this weekend!
