Gary Illyes, Martin Splitt & Aurora Morales From Google Zurich Have Dinner /photos/google-zurich-dinner-30515.html Tue, 01 Dec 2020 07:00:00 -0500 Gary Illyes, Martin Splitt & Aurora Morales From Google Zurich Dinner So here is a photo that Gary Illyes from Google shared of him and a couple of his colleagues from the Google Zurich office having dinner together. You can see Martin Splitt and Aurora Morales with him. I cannot fully make out what was being served for dinner outside of the bowl of olives but I hear Gary is a pretty impressive cook. It is also weird to see them together during these times. Update: This was lunch, not dinner: He shared this photo on Twitter.

Vintage GoTo Beach Towel /photos/goto-beach-towel-30510.html Mon, 30 Nov 2020 07:00:00 -0500 GoTo Beach Towel Here is a photo that was taken and uploaded to Flickr back on October 8, 2013 taken on an iPhone 5 of a classic and vintage GoTo.com beach towel. GoTo was in 1997, it rebranded to Overture in 2001, became Yahoo Search Marketing in 2003 and then Yahoo Gemini in 2014. GoTo was the first pay per click ad platform for search results. Got all that history? Well, here is a beach towel the company had probably back in the late 1990s.

Google's Martin Splitt Gets A Trim /photos/martin-splitt-haircut-30500.html Fri, 27 Nov 2020 07:00:00 -0500 Martin Splitt Of Google Gets A Trim Martin Splitt of Google, who is known for his somewhat wild hair styles, has decided to go with a new hairdo. The new hairstyle is, um, ordinary. No more color, not long, just very corporate. Martin said the reason for the change is because this hair cut is "much more practical for diving." I made this GIF of a before and after look based on the past two videos he published on the Google Search Central YouTube channel. Honestly, I have no sense of style - so I am not one to comment. But we need to keep tabs of these appearance changes, for reporting purposes. :) This post is part of our daily Search Photo of the Day column, where we find fun and interesting photos related to the search industry and share them with our readers.

Google Mural Painting In Office During The Pandemic /photos/google-mural-painting-in-office-during-covid-30467.html Fri, 20 Nov 2020 07:00:00 -0500 Google Mural Painting In Office During COVID It is nice to see Google doing some part in helping some local businesses keep busy doing the pandemic. Here is a photo from artist Katie Benn who was hired by Google to do some mural painting work at the GooglePlex, the main Google headquarters in California. The office is pretty much empty, so I guess it is a good time for some renovations... Katie posted several photos on Instagram and wrote "my mural at @google earlier this fall. I was working on a giant ode to adventure and travel, the design being decided before covid. It was a weird time painting maskless happy people, joyfully traveling the world, exciting scenes of travel by air and sea, meanwhile the US was banned from visiting most countries, the bay area had been emptying out for months and this ongoing pandemic was revving up for another wave. At the time it felt bizarre, to be painting one world while living in an entirely different one- but then I realized that's really no different from what I'm doing most of the time anyway." Here is the post with more photos:
