Bookmark and Share

Google celebrates its 13th year today. Part of the celebration is the birthday-themed doodle on its site featuring a Google party diorama complete with cake and balloons.

In the 13 years Google has grown to nearly 30,000 employees, reported over $9 billion from the previous quarter, and recently purchased mobile hardware maker Motorola Mobility.

The company has pushed innovations including Android for smartphones and tablets, Google Wallet, Google TV, Google Voice, driverless cars, Chromebooks and become the standard for online mapping services.

Google has patented its doodles.
