Have you seen the Google Doodle for today?

As Google enters teenage, it is already a huge company. Its search engine (the company's first service) dominates search share by a lot. Last month, it was handling about 65% of all the searches.
Google is an advertising company. Most of its consumer services are free. Its main source of revenue is online advertising. (Look around Right Now In Tech and you'll see several ads by Google).
Happy birthday, Google! Welcome to teenage.
