Google is a search engine company whose origins date back to 1995 when Stanford University graduates Sergey Brin and Larry Page did a research project that actually went on to become the largest search engine in the world. The original name was BackRub (as it analyzed backlinks back then). The modest operations of the company started in a garage-based office in the same area where Facebook’s office is situated in 1998 – Menlo Park, California.

The name Google was selected because it resembled “googol” – a number that consists of 1 and then a lot of zeroes follow, referencing the wide variety of information worldwide. The mission of the company has been organizing the world information and making it useful universally. Today, the search engine company, courtesy of its robust indexing technology, has beaten the likes of Yahoo, MSN, Alta Vista, Bing, and all other search engines in the world.

Unlockboot publishes a wide range of news and research based articles on Google. The site also talks about the wide range of software and hardware products that Google owns, mostly about the mobile operating system that Google has developed (Android). You will also find our views on Google Chromecast, Google Now, Google Maps, etc. The articles also compare the two tech giants in the world (Apple and Google) and how their offerings compare against one another.

We publish articles by fact-checking everything, although we occasionally hear the words “pro Apple” as we iDevices and iOS software are the main theme of our website. Our pieces contain thought leadership quotes, highly-detailed comparisons, and researched-backed views on Google and its offerings, so if something is better about Google than its competitors, we do acknowledge rather than boasting about their competition. Google currently leads the market share in the search engine market, and is likely continue doing so.
