Google it…

Its official now, Merriam-Webster
has added the term “google” to the latest version of its Collegiate
Dictionary…we all been using google to search from various sites, music, photos,
terms, news, even ego search..

Google has a come a real long way, famous for its
simplicity, extensive database with lightning speed results…I’ve been a google
addict all my life & have been googling (I can use it, as its official now)
for almost anything to everything.

Nothing beats Google when it comes to search engine not even
yahoo, msn or askjeeves.

 

History Trivia
-Google was started by two Stanford
University nerds Sergey
Brin & Larry Page who just wanted the vast information on internet accessible by everyone, both
were highly intellectual who came from different perspectives & with
divergent viewpoints but with a unique goal. They had the idea but now they
wanted a buyer who would buy it, first they approached Yahoo! founder David
Filo, he agreed that the technology was great and advised them to start their
own search engine company. They were in desperate need of some pocket money to
pay their credit bills & decided to share their technology to Andy
Bechtolsheim (founder of Sun Microsystems) he analyzed the potential of the
project & agreed to buy it and thats when he made a cheque of $100,000 in
the name of Google Inc, The name “Google” originated from a
misspelling of “googol, “which refers to 10^100 [a 1 followed by
one-hundred zeros]..then as we all know history was created.

Now Google Inc is worth around $8 billion and with more than 7000 employees. It has
come out of the search engine genre and exploring new paradigms with numerable services

Here are few tips on how to use google in an effective way –

All European World Cup


Argentina
lost

the team I wanted to win the world cup

the hardworking Tevez not getting an opportunity, Mesi not
being included, Maxi not getting his target set. I prayed to not let the game
go to the penalty shoot out where Argentina just don’t have the luck and
unfortunately thts what happened history repeating itself & Argentina going
down to hosts 2-4 in PSO.

 

England lost

the team I thought would give others a tough run

Rooney gets a red card on a controversial mix up, Beckham
opting out due to injury, Gerrad & Lampard failing miserably to perform
& Portugal in spite having an advantage of playing against 10 players
couldn’t materialize & finally the game going to penalty shoot out where
they beat England 3-1.

 

Brazil lost

the team I expected to win the world cup

Zidane and team where in the game right from the word go,
the aggression & team spirit were visible in the field, Zizu showing all
his talent and the ability os what he can do with the ball, the dodge, the
pass, the dribble, the superb Henry goal, everything just seem perfect for the
last WC’s blunders.

In spite of having the best talents as Ronaldinho, Carlos, Kaka
where no one could land the ball in the nets even Ronaldo just couldn’t create
the same magic as last WC and regrettably they were thrown out by a better
skilled team.

I’m flabbergasted by the performance of the ‘star’ players where
they just did not give their best or more aptly put the ‘Hand of God’ was not
on their side, to conclude nothing is much left to be watched in the WC’06 now
as we have all European nations Italy, Germany, Portugal & France contending
for the elite cup, it seems more like Euro Cup…sad…bad!!

 

but on the other side of the sports there were some good
news –

India
winning in Windies after 25 years; way to go skipper!!!, you truly deserved to
be the wall of the series..

Schumi winning yet again in Indianapolis and closing the difference
between Alonso..

..atleast the sun’s shining bright in some part of the world
sport…meanwhile its pouring heavily in Mumbai.
