Google is digitising your old news papers

You will soon be able to read the news papers that your grand fathers read when they were a kid. Yes, Google, who never gives up on expanding its searchable archives started an ambitious project 2 years back to digitize all the news papers that have been printed and still exist for over 200 years!

"For more than 200 years, matters of local and national significance have been conveyed in newsprint--from revolutions and politics to fashion to local weather or high school football scores. Around the globe, we estimate that there are billions of news pages containing every story ever written. And it's our goal to help readers find all of them," wrote Punit Soni, a product manager at Google

They are planning to digitize and archive the stories as exact as they originally appeared. They have started with New York Times and Washington Post. They will soon be spreading their wings all across. Guys, I don't know why, but I have a strange fear in my mind. Google is entering in every nook and corner of our life. Are they going to dominate us?😔

    I think its a very positive thing. So Google will be having backup of all the things. We need not worry about the old junk data then.
    Google is and will be dominating all the search engines obviously.
