The Google homepage Doodle this Friday (27) celebrates the company's 21st birthday. September 27, 1998 is marked by the publication of a study by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, founders of the company and, at the time, PhD students at the prestigious Stanford University. The work described a prototype of a large-scale web search engine that would later become Google.
The commemorative design dates back to period technology, with a classic computer displaying one of the earliest versions of the site. In some countries, the company also takes advantage of the date to offer 21% discount on products from the official store. The offer is not available in Brazil in the country, the company operates limited retail, only with the sale of Chromecast 3.
