W hen people think of Google, they see a company that is at the forefront of technology. They imagine fast computers, big profits, artificial intelligence, and strategic planning for the future.But sometimes, Google can also use traditional methods in order to satisfy the queries of users. Read the story below for a similar situation.
A father and son from Germany were enjoying their days at summer camp.
However, they had no internet connection when they wanted to know what a "Deichhornchen" was.
They still wanted to know what the word meant, so they contacted Google. But their method was not conventional.
Instead of trying to find a way to go online, Timm and Michael sent an actual mail to Google.
It was simple, and they probably were not even expecting an immediate response.
The nearest Google office from their summer camp was in Hamburg. Within a week, Timm and Michael got a response from Google.
Sadly, the father and son provided the wrong word. It was supposed to ask about a squirrel named "Eichhornchen."
"Deichhornchen" does not actually exist. But Google still provided them with information regarding this supposed creature.
Even the typical illustrations provided when you search for a word on Google were drawn by the employees.
Aside from Google being an amazing, humble company, they also sent a smiley that was drawn at the bottom of the letter.
