I just thought you’d like to know you helped us ﬁnd our mom! -- Laurie M.` `I have to tell you thank you! After 12 long years, I have been reunited with my ﬁrst love via Google. If it were not for your company, I would not have found him so eas- ily. He moved all the way to Germany, and I googled his name about a month ago. His boss has a website, and there is a tiny picture of him on it, with his name. If it was not for that, we would have never reconnected. Thank you over and over and over again! You guys rock! -- Orlena C.`

GOOGLE MOBILE PRODUCT EXAMPLES Google Earth & VW The prototype enjoys three important advantages over today’s systems. Firstly: the 3-dimensional, photorealistic display of the surrounding area makes intuitive orientation easier for the driver and his passengers. Secondly: important real-time data are fed into the system through a link to the internet. This means that, for example, trafﬁc data and weather reports, but also any other information relevant to planning the journey such as ﬁlling stations, their opening times and current fuel prices are available, enhancing comfort, safety and reliability for the journey. Thirdly: a further online link coupled to the search function allows the driver and his passengers to receive speciﬁc information about special features en route and at the destination – hotels, restaurants, cinemas and theatres are feasible examples. The driver and his passengers can even receive shopping data, right down to current prices, through the innovative navigation system. All such data is shown on the display. source: http://www.automotoportal.com/article/Volkswagen_and_Google_develop_revolutionary_navigation_system

PRODUCT STRATEGY SWISS KNIFE EXAMPLE The effect “multi-fonction pocket knife” (term of Marissa Mayer) is also very important. One can compare the handle of the knife to research on Internet and each tool to one of the services of Google. It is not always very near in term to functions of the knife, but it is always practical! And of course, one prefers a knife very equipped with a traditional knife. On this point however, there are grounds for to discuss. Google gives you what you need, exactly when you need, in the place where you need, source: www.zorgloob.com
GOOGLE COORPORATE PHILOSOPHY Ten things Google has found to be true 1. Focus on the user and all else will follow. 2. It’s best to do one thing really, really well. 3. Fast is better than slow. 4. Democracy on the web works. 5. You don’t need to be at your desk to need an answer. 6. You can make money without doing evil. 7. There’s always more information out there. 8. The need for information crosses all borders. 9. You can be serious without a suit. 10. Great just isn’t good enough.
Googleplex The Googleplex is the Google company headquarters, located at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway in Mountain View, Santa Clara County, California, near San Jose.Googleplex is a p — in the architectural sense.The interior of the headquarters is furnished with items like shade lamps and giant rubber balls. The lobby contains a piano and a projection of current live Google search queries. It is the former home of computer company Silicon Graphics (SGI). Although relatively short in height, the complex covers an extremely large area.

GOOGLE & INNOVATION MANAGEMENT Google & Innovation TechTalks Tech talks are series of educational talks about different subjects 20% percent (tech stuff) 20% Engineers at Google spend 20 percent of their times onto personal projects. “Does Google have some kind of grand strategic plan for the new products it creates? Virtually everything new seems to come from the 20 percent of their time engineers here are expected to spend on side projects. They certainly don’t come out of the man- agement team.” ERIC SHMIDT 70, 20, 10 (management stuff) Managers spend 70 percent of time on the core business, 20 percent on related projects, and 10 percent on unrelated new businesses. “Larry and Sergey are now operating under 70/20/10 too. They might spend their 70 percent time differently. Sergey, for example, has been looking at new ways of doing search quality, a new math around that. Larry has been pushing for some very new ad models. That would count in the 70 percent.” ERIC SHMIDT http://money.cnn.com/magazines/business2/business2_archive/2005/12/01/8364616/index.htm
GOOGLE & INNOVATION MANAGEMENT Google Labs has been a showcase for some of their creations, and is a great platform to see what the public likes and dislikes. Recently they have adapted their “labs” to show products that are still in production (or “in the lab”) as com- pared to those products and services which are ready to ship (“graduated from the labs”) - although some of these graduates, confusingly, remain in beta.
GOOGLE & DESIGN EXPERIENCE LOGO & NAME 10 100 is a play on the word googol, which refers to the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. Google’s use of the term reﬂects the company’s mission to organize the immense, seemingly inﬁnite amount of information available on the web.

There are three main parts to the system: • The We� the user views content, performs services, and manages data on their local machine and on the Web, often without even knowing the difference. Something like Firefox, Safari, or IE...ideally browser agnostic. • Web applications of the sort we’re all familiar with: Gmail, Flickr, and Bloglines, as well as other applications that are making the Web an ever richer environment for getting stuff done. • A local Web server to handle the data delivery and content display from the local machine to the browser. This local server will likely be highly optimized for its task, but would be capable of running locally installed Web applications (e.g. a local copy of Gmail and all its associated data).”... ...* A Web version of iTunes.

GOOGLE FUTURE Future Theory . Google wants to destroy all the carriers. In this view, Google’s main priority is to take over the transport of content and information, rather than just organizing it. Every company that distributes content and information -- phone companies, television networks, cable companies, and so on -- is a target as Google seeks to deliver everything through the Internet. The prime exhibit in this theory is Google’s purchase of dark ﬁber resources. Combine that with Google’s ex- periments around video downloading and Google Talk, and you can draw a scenario in which Google uses the Internet to take down all of the middlemen who carry all of our entertainment, information, and communication. (http://mobileopportunity.blogspot.com/2005/10/what-does-google-want.html)
GOOGLE FUTURE Get lost? Do you? Well, yet another bright young designer from the U.K is developing a system that will have tag and name exactly what your staring at. Google Vision is a conceptual product developed by Callum Peden, for the worlds favorite search engine. The product provides the user with a truly unique information hub by combining GPS, OLED technology and advanced image recognition in the form of a retractable screen device. The Global Positioning System will see the end of wondering the streets asking for directions and the small roller ball will allow for easy navigation of the ﬂexible screen. Brilliant for identifying landmarks whilst on holidays, Google vision acts as a personal; tour guide. As well as this, advanced image recognition will mean Google Vision can target well known landmarks. Then using the increased coverage of wireless internet, provide the user with information on their sur- roundings wherever they may be.
