Google turns 21, celebrates birthday with doodle


NEW DELHI: Search giant Google turned 21 on Friday and it celebrated the occasion with a special doodle that showed a 90s era desktop computer flashing its old logo on the screen.

The image was shown printed over a postcard floating in a mix of colorful bubbles and stars, with the founding date '98 9 27' mentioned on the bottom right corner.

Google is a US-based multi-national technology bellwether that specializes in Internet-related services and products, which include an eponymous search engine, online advertising technologies, and cloud computing.

Google was founded on September 27, 1998, by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were Ph.D. students at Stanford University in California in the US.

The colorful doodle, in sync with the company's online vibe, depicted a desktop computer connected to a CPU and a huge printer, typical of those in the 1990s, and the logo displayed prominently on the screen of the monitor.

Google doodles which commemorate important events in history or celebrate iconic personalities of the past are known for their vibrancy and inventiveness.
