There’s no denying it — Google is an Internet powerhouse. It’s such an influential presence on the Web that when Yahoo! partnered with Google to put Google Ads on Yahoo! search results pages, people began to worry that Google would monopolize the search engine advertising business. Even the U.S. Congress began to question the allegiance. Google has certainly come a long way — the company grew from a haphazard collection of computers networked together in a garage to a global corporation worth billions of dollars.
The backbone to Google’s business is its search engine, but that’s not the only service Google offers. Do a little digging on Google’s site and you’ll come across everything from productivity applications to an instant messaging client. Google developed some of these products and features itself. But in some cases, Google products started out as independent projects designed by other companies. If Google executives see an interesting application that helps the company achieve its goals, there’s a chance Google will make an offer to acquire that company.
