Please! I'm going nuts! WHY does Google have little pieces of cake on
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 12:06 AM by Radio_Lady
their search web site today? With little red maraschino cherries on top?

Is it for Halloween? The holiday season? Is this National Bake A Cake Week? Or National See Your Dentist Day?

Why?

2. Rest your pointer over the graphic.
It'll tell you.

If you're not set up to do that, right click and select Properties.

From:
http://searchenginewatch.com/searchday/article.php/2160...

"Google, Inc. was established on September 7, 1998. Following traditional silicon valley protocol, the founders hired Craig Silverstein, now Director of Technology, as their first employee, and set up shop in a friend's garage. Google at the time was still in alpha, with an index of just 25 million pages, but it was handling 10,000 search queries every day.

The company grew quickly, and on June 7, 1999, the company announced that it had secured a round of funding that included $25 million from Sequoia Capital and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Buyers.

The rest, as they say, is history. The official history page has all these details, and more..."
