    I am thinking if anyone would have purchase minimum 100 share of Google 8 years back then how much profit he would have made by now..
    I like Google very much because of their new ideas and innovation.

    I can't even begin to comprehend their massive amounts of server space and cpus and ram to have 6.4% of the internet traffic -mind blown-

    Good point. Have they ever shown any of this to the public?

    And then Google an Walmart collide and cause a big-bang theory, and our galaxy get's sucked into a void.

    Would be interesting to see how that much data breaks down into various subsets. Such as adsense vs search results(text vs image vs other) vs video files and whatnot.

    Google's HUGE. 6% of the entire internet is nothing to scoff at.

    I think Gmail has a good share of the cake too. I hear lots of positive things about it and I use it myself all the time during the day. And I guess it generates lots of traffic too with all that spam management :)

    the growth of google is just mind blowing. to think handling that much of the internet's population is just astounds me. it looks like google's success comes with everything they get involved with. what's next? global domination? HAHA

    I do wonder what servers they use/ specs of the machines they use? I mean, thats alot of people accessing there servers and I know they must be pretty high spec, but there servers even have the capacity to run other stuff, I can't remember where I read it (may have been on a techspot weekend news read) but google dedicate server time for scientists etc... to work out complicated maths questions and run 6% of all bandwidth used on the internet?!

    These server farms must be mind blowing to see! Let alone what ISP's they use to host there servers on!

    Considering it's not just 'www.google.com', but ALL of Google's website properties, 6% seems kinda small to me..

    They deserve it, there search engine has been the best for years. Hopefully they don't change it too much as they are starting to change it recently. If there is a Skynet coming, I see Google all over it haha.
