On September 22, 2012, Google News celebrated its ten year anniversary. It seems like Google has been around a lot longer than that to me. The company certainly has changed and evolved in that relatively short time.Editor's note: I originally misread this story - the 10 year anniversary is for Google News. My apologies for the confusion. The spirit of the poll question still holds however.
I first heard about Google, at least this is how I remember it, on an episode of The Screensavers on TechTV. Leo Laporte was touting it for its minimalistic display and the power of the search algorithm. The company has come a long way. Google now has everything from the mundane of email to the futuristic concept wearable computer.
So, I put it to the TechRepublic audience, where is Google heading as a company and are we ready to follow?
