Our doodle of the Day- Hedy Lamarr's 101 birthday
We love highlighting the many good stories about women’s achievements in science and technology. When the story involves a 1940s Hollywood star-turned-inventor who helped develop technologies we all use with our smartphones today… well, we just have to share it with the world.

Today our doodle celebrates Hedy Lamarr, the Austrian-born actress  Hollywood once dubbed “the most beautiful woman in the world.”  The patent for “frequency hopping” Lamarr co-authored laid the groundwork for widely-used technologies like Bluetooth, GPS and wifi that we rely upon daily.

We're excited. Project Link expands to Ghana!
Since we first announced Project Link in Uganda, our work with partners has shown us what's possible, and we want to see more. That’s why today, we are expanding Project Link to Ghana, our first country in West Africa, so that we can work with local Internet service providers (ISPs) and mobile network operators (MNOs) to bring fast, reliable broadband to more people across the continent.

+Thapelo Motlogeloa the normal Play Store is available in South Africa, and some African countries as I understand it. The issue with Music, Movies, etc is apparently within our own countries and not with Google. Seems there are local restrictions and licensing needed and some companies want to monopolise the local market.

We’re committed to a greener future in Kenya and around the world. Our investment in the Lake Turkana Wind Power Project will help bring 310 megawatts of clean energy onto Kenya’s grid—enough to power more than 2M households across the country. http://google-africa.blogspot.com.ng/2015/10/investing-in-africas-largest-wind.html
We've come a long way since we first started investing in renewable energy, committing more than $2 billion to 22 clean energy projects, and broadening our portfolio to include new regions like Africa. Since investing in the continent's largest solar project, we've continued to see a big ...

Doodle of the Day
Happy 55th Independence Nigeria!
We join with the world in wishing all Nigerians many more years of flight. Drawing inspiration from the Nigerian coat of arms, the Doodle features the mighty Niger and Benue rivers that wind across the country’s fertile plains before merging and flowing into the Atlantic. Symbolic of resoluteness and strength, an eagle cuts across a vast Nigerian sky at the center. Keep soaring Naija!
Check out the doodle - www.google.com.ng
