Google is growing up, and with that s/he/it is getting smarter and more intuitive. Cross platform/device interoperability is one of them, and boy it is neat. That and they have made Google+ a viable thing, making integrating YouTube posts with G+, smart move Google. Why it wasn’t implemented long ago I don’t know. Anyways, onto Google Search!

Remember what it was like to search in 1998? You’d sit down and boot up your bulky computer, dial up on your squawky modem, type in some keywords, and get 10 blue links to websites that had those words. It seemed like magic (and it was way way faster than card catalogs and microfiche!).

The world has changed so much since then: billions of people have come online, the web has grown exponentially, and now you can ask any question on the powerful little device in your pocket. You can explore the world with the Knowledge Graph, ask questions aloud with voice search, and get info before you even need to ask with Google Now.

But 15 years on, we’re just getting started. We want to help you make
