Will 2006 Go Down In History?

What a memorable year for techies! In just eighteen short months, a lot has happened for YouTube co-founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen (see pic below). TIME magazine labeled YouTube as the "Invention of the Year" for 2006. Hence, TIME's person of the year being 'You'. In October 2006, Google announced that it had reached a deal to acquire the company for $1.65 billion in Google's stock (cha-ching!). The deal closed on 13 November 2006.


From entrepreneur Robin Li's Chinese search engine Baidu that seemed to double Google's market share in 2006, to Apple's sales that grew 39%, and the creation of leading inventions like the Touchless Trash Can by itouchless, this year definitely saw its share of movers and shakers.
