Can Google Really Do Anything? Please Take Our Survey!

 
 
The Internet has been in widespread use for perhaps as little as 15 years, but it has quickly become a fixture in our daily lives as a source of information – for leisure, school, and work. The availability of news, for example, on the World Wide Web has put increasing pressure on newspapers to the extent that they are folding or changing their business models (in some cases, ironically, to eliminate paper) . It should be no surprise that the legal profession is now in many cases turning the Web to begin legal research.
 
One of the most well-known features of the part of Web is the Google search engine. Almost three-quarters of web searchers, trying to figure out how to do a plumbing task, determine the birthday of their favorite celebrity, learn more about another country, or find the answer to myriad other questions, simply “Google it.” Google Inc. started out as a project by Stanford University graduate students Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1996. Page and Brin eventually created a company and turned it into a corporate juggernaut with a blockbuster initial public offering in 2004.
 
Along the way, Google has grown through development and acquisitions to become much more than a search engine.  The company now offers a web browser, email, a photo organizer, mapping & travel directions, and of course the ubiquitous YouTube, to name just a few of its offerings. We are curious as to how many of Google’s products and applications you are using and if Google really is going to take over the world. Please take a minute to take our brief, one-page survey as to how often you use some of Google’s applications. Thanks!
