24 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Beer

Thanks to hipsters, the common man probably knows more about beer and zythology (“the study of beer and beer making”) than ever before. But did you know the oldest beer ad in recorded history appeared as far back 4000 BC? Or that IPAs were invented because British beer kept spoiling on its way to India, so brewers added more alcohol and more hops just to keep it fresh on the trip?

Gmail: 9 years and counting

This April marks Gmail’s 9th birthday, and as year ten gets underway, it’s a good opportunity to look at how much has changed: the curse of the Bambino was broken, Martin Scorsese finally won an Oscar, and we stopped referencing Xena the Warrior Princess in our blogposts. And during that time, Gmail—and online communication as a whole—evolved too. So much of that evolution is a result of your feedback. In fact, Gmail was inspired by one user’s feedback that she was tired of struggling to find emails buried deep in her inbox. So we built a new email that leveraged the power of Google Search. You told us you were tired of spam, so we set to tackling that, and today your feedback makes it possible for Gmail to filter out well over 99% of incoming spam. You also said that you needed tools to deal with information overload, so we introduced Priority Inbox to help you manage your email (and we’re still exploring new ways to it even easier).
