A review of the 159 granted patents assigned to Google (169 if Exaflop counts.)

A little more than one third focus primarily upon search indexing algorithms, and almost two thirds were developed in-house rather than acquired.

You’re welcome.  I expected a greater amount of "acquired" granted patents, but I think that there may be a number of those that are still pending. Thanks for the sphinns and responses.  :)

This is truly an excellent resource to provide an insight into future thinking, plans and business devlopments, and if Google gets a few of these then they are certainly going to keep themselves on track to take over the world.  Seriously impreesive work Bill, thanks.Ben M
