In January, 2012, Wikipedia and Reddit decided to shut down for a day to make a statement about the anti-piracy bill SOPA. But it is something to wonder about if god forbid Google were to shut down for a day.
Pandemonium would rein large as offices world-wide rely specifically on the services of Google for their daily work. But then, what most of us forget is that there as other search engines as well that will help us through that tough phase.
The first would most probably be Yahoo or Bing for search uses, for maps there is your phone’s own navigation system as well as for mails and messages, of course we can rely on the social networking sites just for one day.
But then, Google from search to collaboration to email, if it wasn’t for Google most of us would have a hard time making it through our day to day life.
