Google is an American multinational technology company that specializes in Internet-related services and products, which include online advertising technologies, search engine, cloud computing, software, and hardware. Google was founded in 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were Ph.D. students at Stanford University in California. Together they own about 14 percent of its shares and control 56 percent of the stockholder voting power through supervoting stock. They incorporated Google as a privately held company on September 4, 1998. An initial public offering (IPO) took place on August 19, 2004, and Google moved to its headquarters in Mountain View, California, nicknamed the Googleplex. In August 2015, Google announced plans to reorganize its various interests as a conglomerate called Alphabet Inc. Google is Alphabet’s leading subsidiary and will continue to be the umbrella company for Alphabet’s Internet interests. Sundar Pichai was appointed CEO of Google, replacing Larry Page who became the CEO of Alphabet.
The company’s rapid growth since incorporation has triggered a chain of products, acquisitions, and partnerships beyond Google’s core search engine (Google Search). It offers services designed for work and productivity (Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides), email (Gmail/Inbox), scheduling and time management (Google Calendar), cloud storage (Google Drive), social networking (Google+), instant messaging and video chat (Google Allo, Duo, Hangouts), language translation (Google Translate), mapping and navigation (Google Maps, Waze, Google Earth, Street View), video sharing (YouTube), note-taking (Google Keep), and photo organizing and editing (Google Photos). The company leads the development of the Android mobile operating system, the Google Chrome web browser, and Chrome OS, a lightweight operating system based on the Chrome browser. Google has moved increasingly into hardware; from 2010 to 2015, it partnered with major electronics manufacturers in the production of its Nexus devices, and it released multiple hardware products in October 2016, including the Google Pixel smartphone, Google Home smart speaker, Google Wifi mesh wireless router, and Google Daydream virtual reality headset. Google has also experimented with becoming an Internet carrier. In February 2010, it announced Google Fiber, a fiber-optic infrastructure that was installed in Kansas City; in April 2015, it launched Project Fi in the United States, combining Wi-Fi and cellular networks from different providers; and in 2016, it announced the Google Station initiative to make public Wi-Fi available around the world, with initial deployment in India.[6]

Hello Everyone,
What can I say, we gave it a hell of a run, and despite our location, we made some serious waves here in Reno, presenting some of the areas best live music and entertainment.

It comes with extreme regret to inform you all of our closing on February 1st.

My sincerest apologies for the short notice to those of you booked or looking forward to attending any of the great shows we had arranged after this deadline. I assure you, it came as a huge surprise to Doug and I as well. Due to a lack of proper communication concerning construction on the building as well as the never-ending clusterfuck of 4th Street construction, this was not the way we ever intended to go out if that was ever in our plan.

Let it not be said that we did nothing… We did what we could with the cards we were dealt when we took on this amazing endeavor. The on-going construction has seriously taken its toll on operating this fine venue as well as we could within our means.

It’s been a journey, to say the least. With over 400 shows on our stage within my tenure here, Doug and I would like to personally thank each and every one of you for your support and patronage along the way. We would like to especially thank all the wonderful talent that has made our trek worth every minute. To see just what we’ve done here in the past few years, please check out our website at Studioon4th.com and hit that archive button on the menu bar. “If it was on our stage, it was on our page!”

I’m not sure of our future on the scene except to say that Doug and I both love what we do and if I may add….we’re a package deal, and proven ability to complete the impossible on a narrow budget. 😉

I love this city and I’m not going anywhere. We would both like to encourage you all to keep supporting live music, especially the businesses of the East 4th corridor as often as possible. Go see a show!!!
