The Modern Day Sidekick

The Modern Day Sidekick

For years, it seemed like the only companies that would actually change the world and how we communicate was going to be computer and technology manufacturers. With search engines like Yahoo! and Ask simply offering us news feeds and search resources, they just seemed like another website that provided a service that people actually needed, but it never changed how we interacted with each other with all that much impact. So when Google was found in 1996 as a research project, people didn’t think much of it. However since then, it has not only changed the world and how we communicate, but it has redefined several features of the internet. It’s even come to have its own catchphrase created by the community themselves…if you’re looking for something, just “Google It”.

Google Maps3

One of the earliest evolutions that came about from Google was Google Maps, now complete with variations, including Google Earth. There was once a time in the 1990’s that people would use flat 2-dimentional maps on sites like MapQuest, which often featured complicated directions that would only lead to frustration. Google Maps gives people the opportunity to get a 3-dimensional look at their directions and where they’re going. Additionally, nature enthusiasts can use Google Earth to get a realistic topography map of layouts around the world.

Android

No one ever thought there would be a competing phone that would stack up to Apple’s still famous iPhone. But with the Android powered by Google, the powerhouse company has managed to effectively change communication, while keeping the evolution of the technology competitive. Features like Gmail, Google Earth, and several other applications have made the “Droid” stand out from the rest of the competition, and put it in the same ring with the iPhone.

The Driverless Car

When you have millions of investors around the world who have made your stock one of the most valuable in the history of the stock market, you use that money to change the world, since there isn’t much else you could do with it. The driverless car was a project created by Google several years ago, and they’ve begun testing them on open streets in both Nevada and Arizona. What does it have to do with the internet and communication? Absolutely nothing, but when you have the resources to make the world a safer and more technologically advanced placed, you would certainly take advantage of that.
