Google

The {World-Wide Web} {search engine} that
indexes the greatest number of web pages - over two billion by
December 2001 and provides a free service that searches this
index in less than a second.

The site's name is apparently derived from "{googol}", but
note the difference in spelling.

The "Google" spelling is also used in "The Hitchhikers Guide
to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams, in which one of Deep
Thought's designers asks, "And are you not," said Fook,
leaning anxiously foward, "a greater analyst than the
Googleplex Star Thinker in the Seventh Galaxy of Light and
Ingenuity which can calculate the trajectory of every single
dust particle throughout a five-week Dangrabad Beta sand
blizzard?"

Douglas Adams fans also like to type this into the google search bar.

What is the answer to life, the universe and everything?

I know but it is still fun to type it in to google and see it come up with the answer. I also use google to do my metric conversions since here in the US we just can't seem to figure out the great complexity of a 10base measurement system.

Also, I'm waiting on a post from you on Bill Gates recent retirement announcemnt...
