“Google it.” – Honestly, how many times have you heard that?
On September 4th 1998 Google was created and our ability to research using books was lost; 29 years after the launch of the internet. It started out as a small website allowing the general public to search their interests; fulfil their curiosities and provide them with information on just about anything.
Over the last 18 years Google has evolved greatly because of the internet. Google has added numerous features to their website, this includes: Google maps; Google images; Google News; and many other Google add-ons that somehow make our lives that little bit easier.
Without Google, people in this day and age wouldn’t know what to do if we did not have the internet there to comfort us by answering any questions we desire the answers to. If it wasn’t for the invention of the internet in the 1960’s we would not have the luxury of asking Google what the weather will be like tomorrow or ask Google Maps where the local chip shop is after a heavy night out…
What astonishes me about Google is how much it’s relied on, on a daily basis. It surprises me how people before the 1960’s survived without the internet. Especially Google.
