I Really Can't Remember Life without Google, Can You?

Real Estate Agent with Sabinske & Associates, Inc. (Albertville, St. Michael)

Well, according to Google, they are now 12 years old today.  It's been all over Twitter, the tech blogs, and the news.  Congratulations to them.  As one woman put it, you have one more year to use them because when they become a teenager, they will no longer listen to you! 

I hope that doesn't happen.  I still happen to like my gmail. 



The other news today was that the guy who was the Segway president ,Jimi Heselden, died while riding off a cliff on the Segway.  Oh, I can just hear the jokes now.  However, he had donated over 23 million in British pounds to charity over the course of his lifetime.  So, for that, let us go a little easy on him. 

Given the fact that he was worth only 166 million British pounds that isn't a bad number for donations to charity.  Wonder if some of our highly paid executives in the states could boast that kind of percentage? 

And, wonder of wonder, the porn honchos are out to take down the "pirates".  Enough said.

I can't imagine life before and definitely without Google nowadays. Happy Birthday to Google! This is a prime example of something I couldn't do without.

Happy Birthday to Google and I love how it has made internet surfing much more enjoyable for me. Can't believe it's been 12 years though. Wow.

Suzanne, I don't know how I ever survived without Google - and what an odd mix of news you have to share!  ;)

I can remember when they were the new kids on the block. Remember when Altavista, Dogpile, Ask Jeeves and others were vying for the top spot? Can we say bye-bye to most of them...

Google is so useful, and could not think of a day without it.    Everyone should count how many times each day/week they use this - invaluable!

Rich, I did, too.  Sorry. 

Joan - That's a great idea....I will do that this week. 

Michael - I remember Dogpile and Ask Jeeves.  Sometimes they were helpful when I needed some real local information.  But, google got better and that and sayonara.

Paul - I truly agree.  After seeing some documentary about how they collect information (but so does Yahoo and Hot mail) and now hearing that the Gumnt wants to monitor our messages (with a court order! HA!), I am evern more skeptical

Debi - Between Google and Wikipedia, I am not sure how I would get great information.  Both are suspect and we need to verify facts, but they are helpful tools. 

Sharon - it was an odd mix....but so it goes.  Sometimes the tech news is more interesting than what the politics have to offer. 

Carla - You were probably five when it started, right? 

Victor - since I use gmail, I can't imagine life without it either. 

Charlie - Dialup and AOL - oh, yes.  I just got over $1000 from AOL for double billing me for years.  It took time but was well worth the effort.  I have the picture of the check on my wall as an example of bad faith.

Suzanne, almost missed Google's birthday.  Can't believe that piece of brilliance is only 12 years old.  Can't remember what things were like before.
