Happy Birthday Google!

Google turned 13 Tuesday, and the search engine celebrated its big day the same way it has every year since 2002 — with a special anniversary doodle.

This year’s effort, a staid, retro birthday party scene, doesn’t quite seem befitting of a newly-minted teenager. But, then again, 13 is pretty ancient in Internet years.

It’s a testament to Google’s popularity that whenever they shake up their home page with a doodle to commemorate a special event it’s big news. Wish Google a happy birthday by checking out this complete list of every Google Doodle. We’ve posted a few of our faves below. Happy birthday, Google!

New High School Allows Students to Earn College Degree and Land Job with IBM

The IBM International Foundation and the New York City Public Schools have collaborated to create the new Pathways in Technology Early College High School, which will open in September.

Dubbed “P-Tech,” students can earn a standard four-year diploma, or opt to stay for two extra years — after which they’ll graduate with an associate’s degree in computer science from CUNY’s College of Technology (City Tech) for free. They can then continue their studies at City Tech, attend other colleges and apply the credits they’ve already earned, or be considered for employment by IBM’s IT department and at other companies.

Beer-Loving Robot Prefers Tecate Over Bud Light [VIDEO]

While scientists have yet to perfect artificial intelligence, they’ve at least perfected artificial beer preference. When it comes to brewskies, this thirsty robot named DARwIn-OP know what it likes — the folks who built him over at Trossen Robotics actually programmed him to have a drink of choice. Given the option, the little guy will ignore a can of Bud Light and go for a cold Tecate every time.

It could have something to do with the colors of their respective cans, but we like to think DARwIn’s just got fond memories of a robo-bender in Mexico.
