They did not sign in blood, Google's top brass pledge an oath of service to their company

One traditional problem area for big companies is the issue of executive turnover.  A shining example of this is Yahoo, who over the Summer had to install a new CEO, Jerry Yang, and now faces buyout and the resignation of its chairman, Terry Semel

Competitor Google is aware of this potential pitfall, and its top executives are determined to do everything in their power to run a steady ship.  In an interview with Fortune magazine, which is set to run February 4,

@0 years is a long time, oh sure they're on top now but, etc, etc, bloody etc.

You are missing the point.

A 20 year pledge is good in that it stabilizes the management team that brought us Google, also it won't be stories of (and any one of them could sell out and take off right now) early retirement, sell outs, etc that tank their stock. (stability is good)

But look at it in another light:

20 years of running an organism that has given you the ability to research and develop any thing you could possibly want! You have a crap load of money, a crap load of engineers, the ears and eyes of the world, and damn it all, You're Google!

Anyone here, who reads this tech site, honestly would cream or wet their pants at the opportunity of being in that spot.
Just think, "hey guys, lets make some Android consoles... Let's buy AMD." You could actually do it. You have the cash, the clout, the anything you'd need to pull it off. You also have the distinct advantage of being the "good" guy. (for now)

I think that friends coming together and saying hey, we have control of one of the most powerful internet-centric companies in the world, and can fulfill most any of our dreams... Lets not F# it up. Is a no-brainer, and a good thing.

Sure there will be battles to be fought, challenges that arise, and innovation and advances erupting... But damn it, they'll be at the center of it, with a hand strong enough to be at the center of it all. Thats where I'd want to be. A player, in the thick of it, with a damn good squad to back me.

Wouldn't you?

i use google on my pocket pc and my main pc before google went stock market

its the fastest search engine

before there were times where i cant get a connection anywhere (serious connection problems) else but i did with google

not to mention when u search u most likely find what ur looking for really quickly unlike other search engines (ive used alot of them) where the advertising gets in the way
