press release

Research on Yahoo! Inc. and Google Inc. - Internet Information Providers Always Looking to Grow


Woah! My mind is blown! Companies look to grow?!??

Hmmm... I kinda figured there would be rioting, but was surprised (maybe a little disappoint) to find no threads on /b/ about this. At least that I saw. I did spot this note about their HTML5/CSS3 rollout:

If you are using an extension or app that has not been updated for the changes, some features may not work-you will need to wait for the developer to update their extension/app to be compatible with the new HTML. If you haven't downloaded it already, try the Official 4chan Chrome Extension.


Of course I also saw a picture of a human hand holding a very large turd -- apparently plucked fresh from the toilet.
I don't like going to /b/ very often.

Meanwhile, Google continues to work hard to stay ahead, finding new and growing areas to expand into. Most recently the company has begun discussions to acquire the website 4chan which would bring with it a large user base.

On the other hand, Apple's motto: "Be evil" seems to be working very well for them. Richest, most powerful company in the world & all.

Google Schmoogle. It's a flash in the pan website that will be gone in 5 years.

Yea right, Google acquires 4chan so that their next Google Doodle marks the birth of Tub Girl.


Google Doodie?

I still say they (Google) will try to pick up Sprint.

I call shenanigans. "Google set to purchase 4chan" was announced in September, 2008.

Because we all stockcall is the place to get your stock shares that Google will always join stockcall and see the stock shares be ahead of Yahoo! in search results, i mean who I SAID JOIN STOCKCALL DOT COM in their right mind would use Yahoo over Google?

Can someone name something Google's done that was original that is still up and running?

How did this get greenlit? It's nothing - literally - but an article advertising some "stockall" website.

Gmail, in that it broke the storage barrier. However, Gmail now is ridiculously behind the times thanks to it's bloated, sluggish UI.

Point taken however. Google is w/o question the biggest opposition to innovation in the tech industry. That said, as long as they give stuff away for "free", a certain type of person will be happy to ignore this and defend them till death.

Why? I must say I don't know a great deal about their involvement in that arena, so I'm fairly ignorant to anything that might elicit a statement such as yours.

Do you know about Wal-Mart's business model? Google's is the same, but in tech, rather than retail.

Selling a product that people want to buy is now evil?

Google has been known to read the emails of it's competitors if they use Gmail.

How is buying technology and doing research 'evil'?
Yahoo is one of the biggest sell-outs on the net.
Yahoo is continually shutting down service after service, while shoving more and more ads down users throats.
I'll be surprised Yahoo lasts another whole year

Walmart's strategy is to be the world's best logistics company. Doing consulting work for a Walmart supplier it became evident very quickly they knew our cost structure better than we did. They also use standardized processes as much as possible to work with low skill labor and reduce overall costs. Their travel policy has no fringes, their corporate offices are low key.

None of that applies to Google. You also made a silly comment about Google being the biggest opposition to innovation in the tech industry. There is no basis for this in reality.
