1. Google

What started as a search engine with a super clean interface has grown into a company whose services you use at least three times a day. Despite its epic, Microsoft like growth, Google has managed to keep a cool image. Maybe it's their culture of free that keeps their users (and us) smiling.

YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
In 2006 the term "Google" was added to the Oxford English Dictionary meaning, "to use the Google search engine to obtain information on the Internet."
