Pinpointing Google's actual birthday has been something of a parlor game over the years. There have been many key moments in the company's history. Google started in 1996 as a search engine with the unusual-sounding name of "BackRub." (Thank goodness that was changed.) Google's own company page says the company was founded in 1998 and incorporated Sept. 4, 1998. But it's today -- Sept. 27 -- on which Google is celebrating its 14th birthday, offering up a slice of digital cake. The cake, adorned with 14 candles, takes the form of what has become one of the most enduring hallmarks of Google's cultural relevancy: a Google Doodle.via latimes
