While addressing Google’s I/O Developers Conference 2019 in California, company CEO Sundar Pichai was spotted wearing a Fossil Sport smartwatch priced at $199, roughly Rs 14,000 in India.

Famed technology YouTuber Marques K. Brownlee, known as MKBHD, recently took to Twitter and asked his 3.21 million followers to identify Pichai’s watch.

Twitteraties later cracked the puzzle, stating that the Google Chief Executive Officer (CEO) was sporting a Fossil Sport smartwatch with black silicone wristband.

Confirming the popular guess, global watch and accessories maker Fossil Group tweeted, “Look ma we made it! The Sport Smartwatch has been spotted at #GoogleIO2019 on @sundarpichai.”

A recent report on Internet found that 1.1 million children learn online that Saint Nick is a fictitious character, as the first article in the search says ‘as adults we know Santa Claus is not real.’

When searching ‘Is Santa real’ the first article that is displayed comes from Quartz, which provides parents with advice on how to answer the question, dailymail.co.uk reported on Wednesday.

‘As adults we know Santa Claus isn’t real,’ an introductory sentence of the article reads.

Stephen Kenwright, Technical Search Engine Optimization Director at Rise at Seven, states that ‘Google is ranking this article on Quartz as the no.1 result based on the authority of the domain and reliability of the content.

‘Google’s algorithms choose the answer which best answers the question searched, taking safety into consideration all whilst being factually accurate.’
