Apple’s dominance in the music player (iPod) and computer (iMac) markets fueled its next product expansion: the mobile phone. In June of 2007, Apple CEO Steve Jobs released the iPhone, sparking a frenzy among Apple fanatics and endless press coverage.

The name "Google" originated from a play on the word "googol", which refers to the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. The use of the term reflects the mission of Google's founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, to organize a seemingly infinite amount of information on the web. Google became the most popular search engine of the new millenium.
