Google turns 23

US: Google completes 23 years and in true Google fashion, it has a special Doodle with a birthday cake.

While celebrations are in order, Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google’s $1.9 trillion parent Alphabet, and his team will do well to remember one of founder Eric Schmidt’s famous quote: “ego creates blind spots.” At 23, Google is as ubiquitous as the air we breathe, a tech giant that tracks everything from what we eat to where we go and who we like.

Google’s dominance in the smartphone market with the Android operating system, as well as the online advertising market and internet search, is no secret to anyone. It’s synonymous with the internet and most people can’t imagine the internet without it. And so, the responsibility of behaving fairly is just as big.

Countries around the world are taking a critical look at the technology that has embedded itself in our society and asking companies like Google to earn their trust.

It is important to note that in at least three cases, the verdicts are pending but the company has been found guilty of similar charges in the past at least thrice. - YAHOO NEWS
