Google Buys Garage Where it all Began
The Google boys have come a long way since their start-up days in a rented garage. AP reports Brin and Page have purchased the home (and the garage) where the company first started.
So how much did they pay and do they plan to use the house as the latest datacenter?
Google declined to reveal how much it paid for its original home, but similar houses in the same neighborhood have been selling in the $1.1 million to $1.3 million range.
Google may use the home as a guest house, but nothing definitive has been worked out. “We plan to preserve the property as a part of our living legacy,” said Google spokesman Jon Murchinson.
