Jennifer Lopez is the Reason Google Image Search was Invented

It all started with a dress. When Jennifer Lopez donned the super-saucy, low-low-cut, Versace jungle dress, the internet went bonkers. But that was way back in 2000 and all we had on offer was text searches. Eric Schmidt (executive chairman of Alphabet, which is Google’s parent company) says, “At the time, it was the most popular search query we had ever seen. But we had no surefire way of getting users exactly what they wanted: J­.Lo wearing that dress. Google Image Search was born.” Thank goodness for J.Lo.
