Google this, Google that, everything in perpetual beta, nothing ever finished and done and working 100% right. They're going to look like a bunch of spoiled coddled self-involved Lego-playing 20-somethings who have free massages and dry cleaning and groovy ethnic food and have been turned loose with no adult supervision to do whatever the fuck they want, and who all are suffering from acute Attention Deficit Disorder so that they never finish anything because they get bored and move on to the next stupid idea that some bozo has dreamed up on a white board. You know why they're going to look like that? Because that's what they are. Yes, there are smart people at Google. Smarts are about one tenth of what makes a business work. The rest is just shitty stuff like dealing with customers and partners and fixing bugs and reworking code and doing all sorts of lousy grunt work -- stuff the little whiz kids don't want to get their hands dirty on. And stuff that Squirrel Boy, quite frankly, has never been too good at either. Sun? Novell? Heard of them?
Google has lost its focus
