Hyderabad: Hyderabad-born Satya Nadella swept the cyber world today with nearly half-a-billion search results thrown up even as he became toast of the social networking sites abuzz with news of him being named as Microsoft CEO.
‘Satya Nadella' name in Google search box produced over 440 million results in half a second.
Google news propped up 12.8 million news articles featuring the 46-year-old in just 0.14 second.
Right now, it appears he is only third after the US President Barack Obama, who attracted about 650 million results and Bill Gates (about 480 million), in the virtual world.
While Indian business icon Ratan Tata fetched nearly four million results, Indian-American Indra Nooyi, chairperson and CEO of PepsiCo, had less than one million search results on Google.
Principal of Hyderabad Public School-Begumpet Col R S Khatri said that he had mentioned, in his speech during the old students' reunion in 2011 in which Nadella was also present, that Google produced 1.14 lakh entries in just 0.13 seconds when Satya Nadela's name was typed.
