Google's World


What company became so successful that its name is now used as a verb? If you’re not sure, well, maybe you should Google it.

Google started as a search engine but it has grown to include email, calendars, documents, maps, even mobile operating systems.

The best and brightest minds work in what is known as the “Googleplex.” And they work under a simple motto: Don’t Be Evil. No matter whether you buy that motto, there’s no doubt...Google is everywhere.

Today, we talk to someone who has essentially handed over his livelihood to the tech giant. We will also be talking about Google’s rise to power with two people who might know the company better than Larry Page. Is Google too powerful...too all-knowing? Or will you live and die by the code?
