Do you know the original Google storage server was made form Lego? Sergey Brin & larry Page made it in 1996 and storage of 10(4GB) hard drives with LEGO construction.
The search engine’s first ever Twitter post was actually geeky and humorous at the same time. The tweet, which was posted in February 2009, was written as: “I’m 01100110 01100101 01100101 01101100 01101001 01101110 01100111 00100000 01101100 01110101 01100011 01101011 01111001 00001010”
This isn’t Google’s piratical joke for April Fool. Google rents 200 goats to cut down the weeds at its’ HQ. They thought it is a lot cuter to watch than lawn mowers.
Google’s famous homepage logo wasn’t actually centered until March 31, 2001. It had a bias to the left-hand side. And as early users could remember, Google also uses Yahoo-style exclamation mark way back in 1998.
The infamous “I feel lucky” is nearly never used. However, in trials it was found that removing it would somehow reduce the Google experience. Users wanted it kept. It was a comfort button. That button actually cost 110 millions a year.
Inside the Google company, the staffers are commonly called as “Googler,” while new team members are referred to as a “Noogler.” Nooglers are required to wear a colorful beanie with a spinner on top. But according to a former employee, those hats were already unusual in some companies, so Google then announced: “Every Noogler gets a yellow smiley balloon and a nameplate.”
The name ‘Google’ was an accident. A spelling mistake made by the original founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brith, who thought they were going for ‘Googol’.

Thuyain is my name. I am amputation, curious, positive, energetic, funny, and considerate individual from Myanmar. I love chit chat but I hate long conversation. You may fine that I’m a bit chatty once I become your friend. I’m so indecisive. Occasionally, I flip a coin to deicide something. My dream for the future is to become a graphic designer and maybe an art director one day. The reason I’m taking this class is to achieve my dream and my curiosity about web-design. Also , this course require for my major.
