August 26 - How you've grown!

In 1999, all the hardware it took to run google was a couple of desktops (not even servers!) and two guys. You can imagine now, that this isn't really realistic in today's world, what with Google being worth over $20billion USD. That's more than £10billion, more than enough to save alot of people's lives in Africa, or just build a really cool super-computer that could run Folding@Home and top the leaderboards! If you want to see all of the high-tech hardware that Google needed to run their mostly unheard of search-engine back in 1999, check this out! Picture from Engadget.

Not a server in sight! Just some lego bricks, a fold-up camping table and some ancient computers.
