^ I have a reputation for being an organized, hard-working productive guy, a fellow who gets a lot done and gets it done on time.

^ Also, protecting our intellectual property rights is costly and time consuming.

We think it's important to have a high density of people. People are packed together everywhere. We all share offices. .We like this set of buildings because it's more like a densely packed university campus than a typical suburban office park."^ In that sense, the browser is more important than the OS, because it’s the gateway to the web.

^ Our global support organization concentrates on helping our advertisers and Google Network members get the most out of their relationship with us.

^ We are happy that we have been able to deliver on this promise already, like support for third party vendors on the Google content network.

According to Google's Guide to Net Neutrality:
.Network neutrality is the principle that Internet users should be in control of what content they view and what applications they use on the Internet.^ Users can also view and manage their history of past searches and the results they have clicked on, and create bookmarks with labels and notes.

^ Element - supplies an input element that should be used by the search control.

.The Internet has operated according to this neutrality principle since its earliest days...^ Achieving this ideal has been difficult since the early days of ads, but now, with the Internet, it is within reach.

.Fundamentally, net neutrality is about equal access to the Internet.^ We also face risks due to government failure to preserve the internet’s basic neutrality as to the services and sites that users can access through their broadband service providers.

^ In coming years, as people find new ways to use the Internet and new devices with which to access it, we have the opportunity to get even smarter about the ads we show.

.In our view, the broadband carriers should not be permitted to use their market power to discriminate against competing applications or content.^ This is because our cash equivalents and marketable securities are valued using quoted market prices or alternative pricing sources and models utilizing market observable inputs.

^ Google Docs allows our users to create, view and edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations from anywhere using a browser.

^ For example, we've agreed to pay the Associated Press (AP) for the right to make new uses of its news content – uses that go beyond the limited uses permitted by copyright laws.

Simple English

[[File:|right|thumb|250px|A man signing in at Google's main office, Googleplex.]] Google is one of the biggest and most famous websites for finding things (search engine) on the World Wide Web (WWW). They also do other things than searching. Other search engines (for example, AOL) use its software and information (database) too. That makes it the most-used search engine on the web. Every day, 200 million (200,000,000) people use it. Google's main office ("Googleplex") is in Mountain View, California, USA.

With Google, people can also search for pictures, Usenet newsgroups, news, and things to buy online. By June 2004, Google had 4.28 billion web pages on its database, 880 million (880,000,000) pictures and 845 million (845,000,000) Usenet messages — six billion things.

"To google," as an action word (verb) means "to search for something on Google". Because Google is so popular (over 50% of web users use it) it has been used to mean "to search the web". Google dislikes this use since the name of the company is a trademark. Google can lose that trademark if people use it too widely.

History

Google was started in early 1996 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, two students at Stanford University, USA. It used to be called Backrub. Later, they made it into a company, Google Inc., on September 7, 1998 at a friend's garage in Menlo Park, California. In February 1999, the company moved to 165 University Ave., Palo Alto, California. Then, later that year, it moved to another place, now called the "Googleplex".

In September 2001, Google's rating system ("PageRank", for saying which information is more helpful) got a U.S. Patent. The patent was to Stanford University, with Lawrence (Larry) Page as the inventor (the person who first had the idea).

Google makes an important, though shrinking, percentage of its money through its friends like America Online and InterActiveCorp. It has a special group known as the Partner Solutions Organization (PSO) which helps make contracts, helps making accounts better, and gives engineering help.

The name "Google"

The name "Google" is a misspelling of the word googol[1]. Milton Sirotta, nephew of U.S. mathematician Edward Kasner, made this word in 1938, for the number 1 and one hundred 0's. It is said that the word "googol" was chosen as a name for this number because it sounded like baby talk. Google uses this word because the company wants to make lots of stuff on the Web easy to find and use. Andy Bechtolsheim first thought of the name. (1 googol is 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.)

The name for Google's main office, the "Googleplex," is a play on a different, even bigger number, the "googolplex", which is 1 with 1 googol of 0's.
