Google

COMPANY

Internet search engine, started as a research project by Stanford grad students Sergey Brin and Larry Page in January 1998. Incorporated in September 1998, with its first office in a friend's garage in Menlo Park, CA. The company went public with a 2004 IPO, using a unique "Dutch auction" technique which alarmed many investment bankers. Google's motto is Do no evil, but expect that philosophy to bend now that the company is public.

Products and services owned by the firm include Android, Blogger, Chrome, DoubleClick, Feedburner, Gmail, Google Analytics, Google Books, Google Docs, Google Maps, Google+ social network, Google Wallet, GrandCentral, Performics, Picasa, SayNow, YouTube, and Zagat.
