Happy Birthday Google

Google is celebrating its 9th birthday today. With little fanfare, except for the logo change, the search engine has obviously had more pressing things on its mind - like dealing with the Senate Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights Committee on the Judiciary.

Interestingly though, if you google Google, they have the 9th birthday announcement in their SERP description. I wonder if Larry and Sergey will go to their favorite Burger King store and reminisce about the old days?
