CAPE TOWN – September 27 marks a very special day in everyone’s lives. We use this engine on daily basis to find cat videos, the latest rants for the US presidential race, Pearl Thusi’s debut on Quanitco and post Heritage Day news. Today is Google’s 18th birthday…but is it really?

While Google has been posting Google doodles every year on September 27 since 2004, many Google devotees have been left rather dazed and confused and even Google doesn’t know it’s actual birthday. But despite the mass confusion and hysteria, Google has continued to evolve and its brand has remained strong.


Well, whether it’s Google’s birthday or not, one thing is for sure…only Google will solve this mystery. Here’s to another 18 years of awesomeness!
