"As the philanthropic arm of Google, Google.org develops technologies to help address global challenges and supports innovative partners through grants, investments and in-kind resources.
We focus on problems where Google’s assets and core capabilities—technology innovation, global presence, making massive amounts of information universally accessible and useful—play strongest and where the solutions we create have the most potential to scale.
Since our inception, we’ve developed a broad range of beneficial technologies. Highlights include creating Google Person Finder, which helps reconnect people in the wake of major disasters; developing Flu and Dengue Trends, which use search trends to provide early warning systems for possible disease outbreaks; and building Google Earth Engine to enable scientists, governments and native tribes to monitor changes to the Earth’s surface. We’ve also funded organizations doing vital work for society, such as improving education, health and clean water access in the developing world, leading scientific discoveries about deadly diseases or incubating new forms of renewable energy."

Google has been under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission for about two years. They claim that Google is using it's market power to harm rival search engines. If the FTC takes action, it would be the most dramatic lawsuit by the US government against a technology company since the 90's. How did they affect the Internet? They invented Google! Sergey and Larry met at Stanford University. Before Google, most search engines ranked websites based on the amount of words that matched the query. Page realized that a ranking system based on the amount of backlinks a website receives would be more effective. Originally google was called BackRub. The name "Google" comes from the word googol, a mathematical unit. A googol is the digit "1" followed by a hundred zeroes. History at Google.
