Now, my dog is called Qwerty and my cat Pixel, so my appreciation of the world of computing is well signposted but a Swedish couple have gone much further and called their newborn child "Google". As you may read there is a very tenuous link to "Google" actually meaning something. A Googol means 1 followed by 100 zeros but you can imagine the company is pleased as punch. They are reported to have announced that they are "delighted at the news of the first Google baby."

“We wish him long life and good health, and hope his schoolmates aren't too hard on him,” writes the company’s in-house blogger.
