Google Buys Garage

Google have bought the house, and garage, where the company started.

The Mountain View-based company bought the 1,900-square-foot home in nearby Menlo Park from one of its own employees, Susan Wojcicki, who had agreed to lease her garage for $1,700 per month because she wanted some help paying the mortgage.

It’s a reminder that Google started only eight years ago.

The busloads of people that show up to take pictures of the house and garage have become such an annoyance that Google asked The Associated Press not to publish the property’s address, although it can easily be found on the Internet using the company’s search engine

Or Google Earth 🙂 Somewhere down there, anyway…
