November 16 was my birthday and I got a special gift from Google on that very day. I’m sure this kind of gift would be delivered to every other person too unless you have never added your birthday to any of your Google accounts.
You can watch Google I/O live on techrammer.com through the widget at the bottom of this post. Google I/O is an annual event organised by Google and it focuses on developers. It usually features highly-technical sessions that focuses on the development of web, mobile and enterprise applications.
Google usually change the logo on their home page everyday to mark special events like birthdays of great people in history, national day of a country, independence day of a country, sporting events and so on. They refer to it as “Doodle”.
If you look at the Internet a few years back, you’ll see that advertising was done in a way that was very similar to other types of media like television, or actually, more like what you see in a newspaper. You’d enter a site, and in some location you’d get to see a banner (often these were quite numerous and very large), which would present an ad for whatever company was paying for ads on their space. However, there was one problem with that kind of advertising. It really wasn’t exploiting the fact that the ads weren’t in some newspaper, but were instead presented over the Internet.
