Larry Page and Sergey Brin first named their search engine as ‘Backrub’. Thankfully they changed the original name and change it to Google,  it means the mathematical expression for a 1 followed by 100 zeros.

Google can also work as a timer. Just write ‘timer’ after any amount of time and it will start a timer. This is helpful for students and kitchen working ladies.

4. You can filter your Gmail account

If you add “+anything” to your Gmail address it will still work, which means you could sign up to certain websites using youremail+websitename@gmail.com and create a folder that all emails from that site automatically go into.

5. Google did not create ‘Android’

Google didn’t build android. It was created independently and then bought by Google for $50m. From the Samsung Galaxy S9 to the OnePlus 6, Google’s operating system for phones has become the main rival to Apple’s iPhone.

6. Do a Barrel Roll

It is one of the most fun facts. Just type ‘Do a barrel roll’ in search and the search engine will roll.

Apple Inc. is now the first trillion dollars company of the world!

On Thursday, 2nd August 2018 Apple Inc. became the first ever trillion dollar company. The market value of Apple Inc. is $1 trillions now. The milestone moment, when the shares of Apple company reached $207.05 in intraday trading in New York.Apple has left all the tech giants like Microsoft Corp., Amazon.com Inc. and Alphabet Inc. behind but they are not so far away as the worth of these companies is more than $800 Billions each.

How Apple Inc. became first Trillion Company

Now the business founded by Steve Jobs and his pal Steve Wozniak in a Los Altos garage in 1976 truly stands alone. Apple Inc.’s market capitalization was a paltry $3 billion when Jobs returned to the wounded company in 1996. Steve came as an interim CEO and turned to its opposition Microsoft for a 150 million cash infusion to help pay its bills.

Mr. Steve Jobs intorduced iPhone and iPods which help the company to be stable. Now, it’s $1 trillion. Apple could lose its lead to the likes of Alphabet Inc or Amazon.com Inc if it does not find a major new product or service as demand for smartphones loses steam.
