* EveryoneOwnsAMac: Despite Apple and Google's Android rivalry, Google plays this trope straight: users requiring a laptop are issued a Macbook, users requesting a desktop are either issued a Mac or a PC preloaded with Linux. Windows usage is rare in the company, and those who wish to use Windows will need to present a business case to the management first and will only get a Windows machine if the business case is approved.

The search engine with the greatest user share, by a large margin. The company that creates/maintains it also works on a wide variety of other products, including things like translators, the webmail provider Gmail, the interactive map [=GoogleEarth=], the web browser Google Chrome (and an operating system of the same name), Android, the social networking hub Website/GooglePlus, TheAdvertisementServer, and one of their most successful products, Website/YouTube. [[http://www.google.com Find it here.]] It also has a mirror site called [[http://www.kidrex.org/ KidRex]], a {{bowdlerise}}d version of Google for kids. The only difference is that [=KidRex=] blacklists inappropriate sites. Wiki/TVTropes' search engine is also run by Google.
